Who's The Man?
Danny Wuerffel actually wasn't as highly thought of by many recruiting experts as fellow signee Eric Kresser.
Kresser had the stronger arm and more polished delivery, and he played in the NFL from 1997 to 1999, so he was hardly any sort of bust.
However, Wuerffel was different.
The son of an Air Force chaplain, Wuerffel finished his Gator career by completing 708 of 1,170 passes for 10,875 yards with 114 touchdown passes—at the time, the most in SEC history and second most in major college history.
He also won the 1996 Heisman Trophy and led UF to four straight SEC titles, the 1995 national championship game and the 1996 national title.
Wuerffel is on the short list of the greatest Gators of all time.
Jason Odom came to UF as the second-most-heralded of two elite prep offensive tackles. Reggie Green was the other.
Green began on the left side and Odom the right, but Odom's talent coupled with Green's troubling injury issues necessitated the two players switching sides.
Now a Hillsborough County sheriff's deputy, Odom was the Tampa Bay Bucs' fourth-round selection in 1996 (96th overall), and he started 41 of 46 games in an injury-plagued pro career.
The 1992 class dertainly was headlined by Wuerffel, but it also got four—yes, four—multi-year starters on the offensive line in Odom, Green, Jeff Mitchell and Donnie Young. A prep defensive tackle, Mitchell went on to play from 1997 to 2005 in the NFL, starting at center on the Baltimore Ravens' 2000 Super Bowl champions.
Other Major Contributors: DL David Barnard, LB James Bates, DE Johnnie Church, LB Dexter Daniels, DE Cameron Davis, OT Reggie Green, DB Demetric Jackson, CB Anthone Lott, OG/C Jeff Mitchell, DB Shea Showers, S Lawrence Wright, OG Donnie Young
PK Bart Edmiston, FB Jerome Evans, DL McDonald Ferguson, QB Eric Kresser and FB Dwayne Mobley also signed.
Walk-on Tremayne Allen, a multi-year starter who later played for the Chicago Bears, had been the TE signee instead of Shawn Nunn.
Only six of the 25 players signed didn't really contribute, so it's tough to find any true failures here.
That said, TE Shawn Nunn, RB Tony Davis, LB Kenny Times, DB Shawn Wilson, LB Andre Washington and OL Nick Quintana never did much of anything as Gators.
