The Florida Gators rode the success of its defense to an 11-1 regular season finish in 2012 and surprise Sugar Bowl berth. The defense is again leading the charge for the No. 20 ranked Gators, who are traveling to Lexington this weekend to face the Kentucky Wildcats with an unfortunate amount of injured players. As of now, four players who entered the year as starters are out for the season with injuries, the latest of which being defensive lineman Dominique Easley.
The 6-foot-2, 282-lb Easley is the primary reason Florida sports the SEC’s top-ranked defense, as he has four quarterback hurries and two tackles for loss this season, and can play both defensive tackle or end, and he’s by-far one of the most versatile lineman in the nation, making NFL scouts drool over his potential even more.
