1. Brad Lawing and Will Muschamp are practically an extension of each other. This is a superb hire that is going to pay dividends with some new pass rush schemes that should allow much more pressure this year.
2. There is a lot of talent at linebacker but there are concerns about size and coverage skills. There are no linebackers in camp who had the ability in coverage of Jon Bostic and Jelani Jenkins.
3. The young talent in the secondary is astonishingly good. So much speed and these guys have great instincts when the ball goes in the air.
4. Jaylen Watkins and Cody Riggs are the only two experienced safeties. Watkins probably should have been a safety all along. Riggs will probably be in the game in nickel and dime situations.
5. Marcus Maye and Keanu Neal have the size and strength to play in the box but they don't have the experience. Florida is going to miss Matt Elam's instincts for sifting through blockers to find the football.
6. Trey Burton will see his playing time diminished in favor of a faster player.
7. Solomon Patton is going to be a factor in the passing game this year. He won't be simply running jet sweeps.
8. Other than Christy's punting, special teams are a serious issue that will be a priority the next two weeks before the Toledo game.
9. Kent Taylor is listed at 240 but if that weight is accurate, he's the skinniest 240 on the planet. He can catch the ball but still needs a lot of work with the weights.
10. There is a lot of emphasis on getting Jeff Driskel to throw the ball to a spot where the receiver is supposed to be instead of waiting to see the receiver break free. If the lights go on in this area, sacks will be seriously diminished.
11. We won't recognize the offensive line. A former UF coach who was at practice last week says it is visibly improved and that Tim Davis will turn this into one of the best units in the SEC.
12. It's Muschamp's defense. D.J. Durkin is the coordinator in name only.

12 will always be true
Dominate oline and dline I will take all day.
Love hearing about 10. That was one of my biggest concerns about Driskel.
Special teams will undoubtedly hurt us if they dont shape up. People seem to just fly by this subject.
615 will freak when he reads 11
There's not much to talk about to be honest.
We all know the kicking is a huge issue and IMO costs us directly one game and indirectly another.
Punt return will be average at best
Punt coverage will be tops in the nation
Kickoff coverage has always been good. Just have to place the ball well since we can't get distance
Kick Return will be weak but I think Patton or Purifit will do decent.
I think our special teams trick plays are great as long as they don't involve Clay. I think we win a game directly or indirectly this year because of it
I don't think our kicking game is gonna cost us a game or 2 like ShortC says, but it's certainly something to watch. I read on TOS and a couple other places, that Hardin made all of his game winning kicks in the scrimmage Saturday and is starting to "seperate". If he can just be good, not great, we will be absolutely fine. I have a feeling we're gonna be scoring a lot more 6 pointers this year anyway.
Winningest Program in College Football since 1990!
This is a great statement ESPECIALLY when you take into account that Halapio and Garcia have been out with injuries. Really seeming to get some good depth on the OL.
Have a hard time believing Trey Burton will see any less PT. Experienced vet with solid fundamentals at his position(s). Gamer.
Other than that, good stuff.
Ah, the Zooker loves the new o-line. Feel much better now....haha.
