Mr. Heisman, Meet "The Freak"

Evan WContributor IDecember 30, 2008

Freak—a person or animal on exhibition as an example of a strange deviation from nature.

Carlos Dunlap is the definition of a "Freak." At 6'7" 290 pounds, Dunlap, who runs a 4.6 40, is a big and fast as they come. He was rated the No. 3 workout warrior by ESPN's Bruce Feldman and is just now starting to live up to his natural ability. He leads the Florida Gators with nine sacks and I expect a huge National Championship game from him, just like former Gator defensive ends Jarvis Moss and Derrick Harvey had in 2006.

Dunlap, who will be going up against another mammoth of a man Phil Loadholt, who is listed at 6'8" 338, is going to have a monster day. He is big enough to fight off Loadholt in the run game and has the ability to use his speed to get around the edge on the tackle. Loadholt, who has had problems in the past with holding off speed rushers because of his slow feet, should be very nervous because Dunlap has shown his quick first step to opposing tackles all year.

With a great game from Dunlap and Jermaine Cunningham the Gators will put the pressure on Mr. Heisman that Oklahoma has not seen all year, and hopefully be able to have a repeat of the 2006 National Championship where the Gators feasted on another Heisman winner.
