Florida Football: Which Gators Pass-Rushers Can Combat Texas A&M's Elite Tackles

The Gators hope Dominique Easley can be a force on the edge.

Florida football is all about tradition, but the Gators haven't lived up to their lofty standard of featuring a dominant pass-rusher for the last few years.

Dating back to the beginning of the millennium, UF's defense has been fueled by the likes of Alex Brown, Jarvis Moss, Derrick Harvey and Carlos Dunlap. 

However, it's been quite some time since the Swamp saw a sack artist.

In Saturday's opener, the defense barely generated any pressure against Bowling Green quarterback Matt Schilz, which is a troubling sign since the Gators are still to face Texas A&M, Alabama and LSU. 

There's a ton of potential up front on this year's squad—particularly with a talented group of freshmen—but when the Gators need a sack, who will step up? 

It's going to be a tough undertaking for the defensive line this week when the team takes on Texas A&M. The Aggies boast a pair of future first-round tackles in Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews. 

Let's take a look at UF's top five pass-rushers and how they can attack the Aggies offensive line Saturday.
