Florida Football: Breaking Down the Gators Wide Receivers
US PRESSWIRE

Since 2007 the Gators have signed 16 receivers but haven't had a receiver named to an All-SEC team since Percy Harvin in 2008. 

The unit has underperformed since that 2008 season and 2011 was no different. Not all of the blame can be put solely on the receivers, though. Last season the Gators dealt with two inexperienced quarterbacks after John Brantley went down with an injury, and when he returned, Brantley just wasn't the same. The offensive line can take some of the blame for not being able to hold a block long enough to develop a down-field passing game and leaving the quarterbacks running for their lives most of the season. 

Although Will Muschamp believes the group is improved, he has acknowledged their shortcomings and challenged someone in the group to "step up."

Let's take a look at the receivers that the Gators will be counting on this season and breakdown what the opening day depth chart should look like.
