      I always thought Omarius Hines never got the ball enough. He was a beast who never got the touches to help his draft stock.

      Good Topic, btw.

        I partially disagree. Rainey was an average pass catcher, Demps was downright terrible. Tebow would hit that kid right between the numbers and it'd bounce into the dirt. Nelson wasn't as fast, but he could at least catch.

          Damn, that is a good answer. I had forgotten about him. He definitely was underutilized.

            Even if you remove those two from the list, it puts him at 8th. I do remember some good catch and runs by the pair though. Kentucky '08 for example (which I think is Demps on receiving TD).

              Oh ok. Like a former player who entire career was wasted. Off the top of my head, I wish we woulda got more years outa gillislie. Clearly was better than rainey or demps.

                Hines is a good one. He definitely looked the part. He was kind of a tweener. But ole muschamp wasn't interested in offense. Definitely one that you'd think woulda been a baller somewhere else.

                  Driskel and Greer.

                  Honorable mention: Brantley. I don't think Meyer did him any favors.

                    So under utilized in 09,10 and even 2011. He had it all as a RB, great 2nd and 3rd gear speed, decisive when he hit the hole, great hands, and pound for pound maybe the toughest runner in the last 10 or so years to go through UF.

                      If feel badly for Brantley, and his commitment made no sense. He could have been good on a non-option team, and the coaching staff wouldn't have felt obligated to start Brantley over Jordan Reed, who was obviously our best option at QB for our Tebow-less Addazio offense.

                          Is that on the coaches though? Or on Brantley for coming here knowing we ran the option?

                          He bought the lie that "there was no offfense" and they "adapted the offense to the players"?

                            Brissett was worlds better than Dipshytskel in any offense. You have to be a moutbreathing dwag fvkktard not to see that.

                              I'd have to say me. My development as a fan has been saverly damaged by the previous staffs. I could have been an all amarican fan, but the last staffs have had me angry and unsettled, getting to a point where I almost expected to lose. Yeah. I'd say me.

                                I remember when Daz left thinking we wouldn't see much Demps other than on KR and Rainey on third down only (or in the slot) while Gillie and the other real RB took the carries.

                                So weird.

                                If seniors are allowed, then Matez Ivey.

                                If transfers are allowed, then I thought Cronkrite was the best back as a freshman.

                                For the parameters the OP set: DJ Humphries, Xavier Nixon, or Quinton Dunbar apparently playing the wrong position for 4 years (and providing a good example Donk’s theory of converting WRs to DB).

                                  Brantley really should have left for another school.

                                      Reed was dumber than a box of rocks and had to have true freshman Trey line up at RB and handle the offense for him.

                                      Reed at QB was never going to work.

                                      Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
