Florida Football: 5 Departing Gators Who Will Be Toughest to Replace in 2013
Rob Foldy-USA TODAY Sports
Caleb Sturgis is one of Florida's most dangerous weapons.

In less than a week, the Florida Gators' senior stars will be playing in their last collegiate game and the search for their replacements will begin.

Will Muschamp has gotten great play from the class of 2013—a group that includes stalwarts like Mike Gillislee and Jon Bostic. 

Florida will attempt to replace Gillislee—the team's leading rusher and best offensive playmaker—with some combination of Matt Jones, Mack Brown and current commit Kelvin Taylor, but will it be enough? 

Bostic has been a mainstay on the Gators' defense for years, but Dan Quinn will have to find a new middle linebacker in 2013. Can Michael Taylor fill the void? 

All these questions and more will have to be answered in the offseason, so let's take a look at the five departing Gators who will be toughest to replace next season. 

 

Note: This list only included seniors and did not take into account possible NFL-bound juniors Sharrif Floyd, Matt Elam, Dominique Easley or Jelani Jenkins.
