With two BCS national championships this decade, it truly has been (as the saying goes) "great to be a Florida Gator."
No doubt one of the most major components of title-winning teams are great players. And UF has had its share.
Since 2000, 59 Gators have been selected in the annual NFL Draft, including 12 in the first round. That followed up a run from 1997-99 that saw WR Ike Hilliard, WR Reidel Anthony, RB Fred Taylor, OT Mo Collins, OLB/DE Jevon Kearse and DT Reggie McGrew all taken among the top 32 selections.
The man pictured on this page, Steve Spurrier, not only coached many draft picks while at Florida, the former Gator quarterback also was a first-round selection of the San Francisco 49ers (third overall) in 1967.
