Florida Football Recruiting: 5 Positions the Gators Can Get Away Without Filling

Watching the 2011 season, it became apparent to Gator fans that the team was not suited to play the style of offense Will Muschamp wanted to run.

For the past five seasons Urban Meyer's staff had built one of, if not the, fastest teams in America to run his spread option offense. In doing so it was sometimes important to sacrifice size for speed.

This penchant for choosing smaller, quicker players showed up especially in the running game this year. The Gators could not find an inside rushing attack with an undersized line and backs. 

The Gators will be sticking with their pro-style offensive attack, and coach Muschamp has made it a priority to get bigger along both lines. The Gators have commitments from seven players on the offensive and defensive lines and remain in play for even more line prospects. 

While offensive line, defensive line and running back were obvious areas that needed an upgrade, here are a few positions that the Gators could stand to not pull in a few recruits in this recruiting cycle.
