Following the team's Sugar Bowl loss, the Florida Gators have found themselves with two big defensive holes to fill after standouts Sharrif Floyd and Matt Elam announced that they would forego their college eligibility and enter the 2013 NFL Draft.
Floyd was a dominant defensive tackle at Florida, leading the Gators in tackles for loss in 2012 and earning All-America talk. He is a powerful and physical player whose skills are ideally suited for the NFL.
While his ultimate draft position will largely depend on his performance in various pre-draft workouts, Floyd currently appears slated to be a late-first or early-second round pick and an appealing option to any team looking to add depth to its defensive line.
Though at least a dozen teams would benefit from selecting Floyd on draft day, five teams are ideally situated to give Floyd a long, hard look due to their likely draft position and positional needs.
Here is a look at these five teams and why they represent potential homes for the Gator standout.
