07:25 AM ET 08.23 | On the upside, at least Florida's Jeff Driskel isn't in a quarterback competition -- as is the case at so many big programs across the country -- but that doesn't mean all is well. [Driskel] must get better at avoiding sacks this fall. Too often he showed hesitancy in the pocket, although the offensive line should not have the depth issues it had in 2012. But do the Gators have enough playmakers for Driskel? ... [Outside] of tailback Matt Jones and do-everything Trey Burton, there are a ton of question marks, especially at receiver. Driskel will have to pass well to keep defenses from stacking the box, but the receiving options are limited. Andre Debose is out for the year, Latroy Pittman is untested and Quinton Dunbar had only 383 receiving yards last season.

Joker Phillips will coach up the talent on hand, and Pease will keep the playcalling sharp so the passing game doesn't carry all the pressure.

There are some dynamic freshman starting with the best of the bunch Demarcus Robinson who will be best pure wideout at UF in a very long time. Look for Louchiez Purifoy to get a lot of reps there too as a two way player. The position certianly is the key for UF's offense to make major improvements from last year. Luckily the D will be ridiculous once again.

Not according to all his statements/quotes, he says it's cool and all to be drafted by MLB team, however he's all football currently. But ya never know, I suppose.

As Steve Spurrier says, it's best to play Ga. early in the year when their best players are still on suspension.
