The University of Florida is going to have a heck of a draft, Florida Time-Union
UF might be headed for a school record when it comes to the NFL Draft, after an 11-2 season in coach Will Muschamp’s second year. Florida’s top draft representation in the current seven-round format is nine players.
The Gators have a chance to break that record when the three-day draft gets underway on Thursday night. The draft will be far more eventful for UF than last year, when just two players were selected.
The Jags are staying on the West Coast for a couple games, Ryan O’Halloran talks about it not being uncommon
The league doesn’t just schedule back-to-back cross-country games for teams – they reach out to see if a team wants to do a combo trip.
The Jaguars said yes – coach Gus Bradley views the early-season week as a bonding experience for his sure-to-be-young team.
John Oehser of Jaguars.com says the schedule “is not impossible,” begging the question: If a schedule is impossible does that mean that the team must go 0-16?
The Jaguars open against Oakland and Kansas City, and also have games against Arizona, Cleveland and St. Louis with a three-game homestand in December. Given the nature of the roster, it’s tough to visualize what the Jaguars will be next season. But if they can negotiate the first half of the season, there’s a chance to have a strong finish.
