I'm interested to see where Degory ends up.

It blows they got Chad Jackson oh well I wonder why he slipped, maybe he was hyped because this wasn't a deep WR class.

I was hoping Saban would draft Jeremy Mincey in the 7th round. He has a strong motor at DE and it is possible he could play some OLB. He is a good pass rusher.

I also love Vernell Brown who I think was the gators best corner last year and a leader on the team. I thought he is a much better player then Dee Webb who was drafted late. I did not think he would get drafted due to injuries but would have been a nice undrafted rookie. He returns punts too. I guess we have too many corners on the roster.

Randy Hand can play guard or tackle and is versitile lineman. He may take a few years to develop.

Degory lacks in power blocking skills although probably good in more of a passing offense. Jeff Mitchell a former gator (5th round pickup for panthers) who at some point was a Free Agent from Carolina (may still be a free agent) was much better coming out of college and would have been a better pickup then degory. In other words Degory never impressed me all that much.
