2023 for Florida football was rough with the Gators going 5-7 and missing a bowl. But, 2023 for former Florida Gators currently in the NFL has been going pretty well.

With the NFL Divisional Round coming up this weekend, the Florida Gators will be the school with the most players taking the field.

Florida Football: Playoff Football

With eight teams still alive to win the Super Bowl, the Gators still have 15 active players remaining in the playoffs, along with a couple more listed on practice squads.

Not only does this lead the nation, but Florida is one of only eight schools to still have at least ten players remaining in the playoffs.

Outside of the San Francisco 49ers, the other seven teams still remaining in the NFL playoffs have at least one former Florida Gators on their team.
