It was easy to sense Jonathan Bullard’s frustration last season. After Dominique Easley was lost for the year to an ACL injury, the Florida coaches told Bullard they wanted him to move inside to defensive tackle. Their request was met with hesitation.

Jonathan Bullard and Dante Fowler have made an impact off the edge of the Florida defensive line this season. Linebacker Antonio Morrison has filled in when Jelani Jenkins has dealt with injuries. Those are the freshmen most Florida fans know about, but they aren’t the only ones catching the eye of the Florida coaching staff. Plenty of others are impressing with their play in practice.
