    Just because I want to pick an odd one: Matt Piotrowicz.

    I loved watching him on kick-offs!!! He was awesome and unique. Never seen a kicker like him.

    Percy Harvin would be my “real” favorite if I wasn’t trying to be odd.

    Wow, I have seen Jack a few times, but I haven't thought of Tommy in years! Thanks for your thoughts! Since you're going back aways, I'll mention Richard Trapp, Harmon Wages, and Larry Smith!

    Wes Chandler, best UF WR I ever saw play. Highest drafted and the best NFL career of any UF receiver. Best hands, best open field runner and one of the best route runners.

    Wasn't paying much attention to the Gators during Carlos Alvarez' years at UF. He may have been better but I wasn't there to see it. Chris Collinsworth would be in my top three. Chris may have been the last Gator to make the Pro Bowl as a WR. (Percy made it as a kick returner.)

    My dad became a Gator watching Rick Caseras play. He used to roadtrip from Pensacola with recent UF grads who were in flight school with him. One of those guys introduced him to my mom. She had just graduated from UF pharmacy school and was interning at Sacred Heart. Rick is still a legend up here.
