Gators Lock In Pro Day Participants

The Florida Gators will hold their Pro Day on Wednesday, and 16 draft-eligible guys from the 2020 roster will have the opportunity to showcase their abilities in front of NFL eyes.

Tight end Kyle Pitts, who is considered a top-five prospect in the draft and even the No. 2 player according to NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah, is expected to take the show.

“The 6-foot-6, 246-pound tight end is expected to end up as one of the most athletic players at his position in history by tests conducted in the pre-draft process, including the 40-yard dash, broad and vertical jumps, and other agility drills,” SI.com reports.

The event will be highlighted by quarterback Kyle Trask, wide receivers Kadarius Toney and Trevon Grimes, safeties Shawn Davis, Brad Stewart Jr. and Donovan Stiner.

Offensive tackle Stone Forsythe, interior lineman Brett Heggie, kicker Evan McPherson, defensive tackles Kyree Campbell, T.J. Slaton and Marlon Dunlap Jr., cornerback Marco Wilson, defensive back Nick Oelrich, and long snapper Brett DioGuardi are among the members of Florida’s 2020 roster that will attend the event, per UF.

Former Florida offensive tackle Martez Ivey, defensive tackle Adam Shuler, and tight end Kalif Jackson will also participate in this year’s Pro Day, the school said.

Ivey left after the 2018 season, Shuler concluded in the 2019 season, and Jackson ended in the 2017 season, SI.com reports.

  1. I’ve been waiting to see this Kyle Pitts work out. He may put on a show like we saw with Calvin Johnson or DK Metcalf. He’s that kind of a physical freak. Everyone’s talking about the quarterbacks in the draft but I think Kyle Pitts is arguably the most talented player in the draft. He’s going to be a weapon in the NFL and I think he could play receiver
