The Gators were better than their 4-8 record last season—that much is inarguable. The defense finished in
the top 10 nationally, and the offense was filled with highly recruited players.
The question is: Who are the Gators’ 10 best players headed into the season?
With a top-10 defense, it makes sense that players on that side of the ball would dominate this list, but don’t overlook the offense.
With that said, here are the top 10 Gators heading into the season, based on past accomplishments, value to the team and the upside they possess this year. If a player hasn't fulfilled expectations but is poised to play a big part of this season's success, there's a good chance he made this list.
