1. QB Jeff Driskel
The true sophomore played well in his 1st season as the full time starter. Driskel led Florida to an 11-1 regular season record, and a birth in the Sugar Bowl. Although the success, Driskel had his issues. At times it seemed like Jeff couldn't throw the football to save his life, and he would opt for scrambling to try to create something but wind up risking his body in doing so. Now as a junior, if Jeff Driskel wants to take the next step with this Florida team he will have to become more of a passer and less of a scrambler.
2. DE Ronald Powell
The expectations for the former No. 1 overall recruit have never been higher. Coming off of a season ending injury a year ago, Powell will be expected to be one of the leaders on this defense and contribute right away. I know what you're thinking though, "How can he be better after injury?". Here's the situation, this is Powell's last chance to prove himself. I think he will see other previous No. 1 recruits like Jadeveon Clowney and Robert Nkemdiche succeed and want to be like that. If he can get himself in the "Clowney mindset" watch out, because he will be an added force to what is already supposed to be an elite Florida defense.
3. Florida RBs
Matt Jones, when healthy, will have to be the go to RB for the Gators with Mike Gillislee gone to the NFL. If he is unable to come back from the viral infection that has plagued him for the last month, look for last years No. 1 RB prospect, Kelvin Taylor, to step into a much larger role for his freshman season. Other guys to watch out for will be do-it-all man Trey Burton, and junior RB Mack Brown.
