Eight former Florida Gators will attend the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Ind., this weekend, which seems like a high number for a team that just bottomed out and went 4-8.
Looking more closely, however, it makes sense. Trey Burton is the only offensive skill player of that group, and it wasn't so much the defense or line play that led to Florida's disastrous 2013 campaign (though the latter could have been much improved).
Furthermore, almost every Gator in attendance played a big role on the 2012 team that went 11-2 and went to the Sugar Bowl against Louisville. It's not like their game tape is that of a perpetual loser.
According to the latest mock draft of Bleacher Report's Matt Miller, two Florida players are projected to go in the second round, one in the third, one in the fourth, two in the sixth and two unselected.
For all eight of them, the combine is a chance to improve on those projections and ensure a higher spot in Miller's next iteration.
Here's a live look at how they're doing.
