    Any Florida Gator fans here? If there are, you know what a valuable guy Guss Scott is. He was one of the few bright spots during the Zook experiment - made plays all over the field. As a Gator and Texan fan, I couldn't be happier.

    Please give me a reason to like this guy. I like Earl because he can really unload on people, but as far as coverage he is lacking. Does this guy have a chance to eventually get the starting job?

    This guy was/is one of my favorite Gators. He works hard, hits hard, hustles, and makes plays; great run stopper. Whether or not he'll be a starter in the NFL remains to be seen, as he suffered season ending injuries his first two years (he was not injury prone in college, by the way), but he's a really solid football player. I've heard him compared to Donovin Darius.

    A little off the mark. He was only healthy for two games after Rodney Harrison went down, and he did start those two games and played well. At this point, I don't think anyone has any idea how valuable he'll be, because he's had a lot of bad luck with injuries since coming into the league. Time will tell......hope I'm not wrong.
