No. 5 Shariff Floyd (2010-2012)

Kicking off this list is Shariff Floyd.

In a three-year Gator career, Floyd notched 92 total tackles, 19.5 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, and one forced fumble. In his final college game, the 2013 Sugar Bowl, Floyd was a beast as he had five tackles (two for loss), two sacks, and one blocked pass.

During his junior year in 2012, Floyd earned first-team All-American and first-team All-SEC honors.

After a tough Sugar Bowl defeat, Floyd chose to skip his senior year and declared for the 2013 NFL Draft.

The Minnesota Vikings selected him 23rd overall and he is currently preparing for his third season with the team. In two NFL seasons, he has collected 61 total tackles, seven sacks, and one forced fumble.
