Would Florida Gators quarterback Jeff Driskel consider making the leap to the NFL Draft a year early if he has a big junior year in 2013?

Florida football players attempting to make the jump to the NFL will participate in UF's Pro Day today (March 12) in front of scouts and coaches from all around the NFL.
When Billy Donovan was darting around college basketball courts in a Providence uniform during the mid-'80s, his Friars never earned better than a 6-seed in the NCAA tournament. They never won a Big East title, regular season or tournament. There was never a target on his team's back, nor the subsequent pressure that came with it.
This, of course, came before Donovan'...
For the third consecutive week, the Florida Gators men’s basketball team went 1-1. After a big win over the Vanderbilt Commodores earlier in the week, the Gators closed it out with a loss to the Kentucky Wildcats. Florida–No. 9 in the USA Today Coaches Poll heading into the week–may have pushed themselves out of the top 10 with the loss. Regardless, the Gators will enter the...

GAINESVILLE, Fla. The biggest question mark the Gators faced entering spring practice a year ago was who would start at quarterback.
A year later that question is near the bottom of head coach Will Muschamps concerns.
Junior Jeff Driskel is the starter.
I certainly think thats a strength of our team, Muschamp said recently.
Driskel and Jacoby Brissett waged a tight battle...
Spring practice is about growth and improvement, but it also allows the Florida coaching staff to try some players at different positions. This year will be no different, as head coach Will Muschamp announced those changes on Tuesday afternoon. The Gators will try to improve weaker spots on the roster by moving players from some of the stronger positions.
Both of the Gators' starting safeties are heading to the pros but the road to the draft is anything but simple. Matt Elam and Josh Evans worked out in the Swamp Tuesday at Gator Pro Day in hopes of bettering their draft stock and impressing scouts and coaches.
The battle for carries in the Florida backfield will get underway when the Gators start spring practice on Wednesday. Mike Gillislee had a strong senior season during 2012, but there are two experienced backs returning plus a high school All-American that will be on campus for spring practice. The Gators have talent in the backfield but hope to find a group that can replace Gillislee’s...
While most were concerned about Florida’s missed shots and another blown lead on Saturday, Florida head coach Billy Donovan was more concerned with another issue. The Gators are missing their fire. The non-conference schedule saw Florida practicing hard and blowing out opponents at will. The conference schedule came to an end with the fire missing during practices and games.
First Practice: March 13
Spring Game: April 6
After a nice bounce-back season in which Florida went 11-2 and was a possible BCS Championship contender, the Gators have been gutted of experienced talent.
This doesn’t mean Will Muschamp’s squad can’t overcome this, but it’s something that must be dealt with if Florida wants to be in contention for the SEC crown in...
