After going 5-7, it isn't a surprise that Florida Football doesn't have a ton of players on NFL radars heading into the 2024 NFL Draft.

And with invites to the NFL Combine released, just two Gators will be making their way to Indianapolis to show case their stuff in front of NFL scouts.

Florida Football: Testing, Testing

Ricky Pearsall

Coming into the season, Pearsall was viewed as a fringe draft prospect that was going to need a big year to move up boards. After falling just short of 1,000 yards receiving despite playing in an otherwise limited roster, Pearsall started to move up into the mid round category in mock drafts.

After a monster showing at the Senior Bowl, there is now chatter of Pearsall moving into the second round.

There are mock drafts out there starting to grade Pearsall as a second round prospect, and he will be a player scouts will for sure keep an eye on at the Combine to see if he is worth moving up to go and get.

Kingsley Eguakun

It was a little bit of a surprise that Eguakun opted to turn pro given the injury riddled season he had, but that hasn't stopped NFL scouts from being intrigued by Florida's former center.

A handful of mock drafts envision him going somewhere on day three of the draft, with most projections looking around the fifth round as a landing spot.

But as is the case for guys with day three grades, a lot will hang on the Combine for Eguakun to either secure his spot or get crossed off lists all together.

The NFL Combine will being on February 26 in Indianapolis and go through March 4. The 89th annual NFL Draft will be on April 25th through April 27th in Detroit, MI.
