Florida football position power rankings: No. 3, CB
The Gators have a handful of guys at corner with elite skillsets and ability ready to showcase all that they can do this fall on the field.
The most notable of those guys is Jason Marshall Jr., who is back for his junior season with the Gators. Jason was a 5-star recruit out of high school and had an exciting freshman year, but took a bit of a step back, along with the whole defense, last season.
Now he’s getting first-round pick hype as we head into the season, and Gator fans know that he has all the tools necessary to be picked on opening night,
Across from Marshall, we can expect to see Jalen Kimber, a transfer from Georgia who played all of last season with a cast on his left hand, who is now back fully healthy and in better shape than ever.
Jaydon Hill and Devin Moore also return looking for some more productive seasons, and the Gators have some true freshmen around in Dijon Johnson, Sharif Denson, and Ja’Keem Jackson, who have all had solid camps.
The corners are in the same boat as the safeties. If the front seven can cause havoc and put pressure on opposing offenses, they’ll be able to lay aggressively and jump routes to make game-changing plays.
The whole secondary will benefit from being under Corey Raymond as one unit, and they’ll take a big leap from last season.
