    Florida confirmed senior DT Dominique Easley will miss the remainder of the season due to a torn meniscus and ACL in his right knee.
    Head coach Will Muschamp got out hopes up after he said Easley only "tweaked" his knee, but other reports stated otherwise. Easley tore the ACL in his left knee in 2011, so at least this isn't a repeat. The senior was the most dominant interior defensive lineman through four weeks of the season and offers great burst and hand use off the snap. He can return under a medical redshirt tag, but we expect Easley to enter May's draft. Our own Josh Norris considers him a top 20 talent, but recognizes he won't be drafted there. Sep 25 - 6:49 PM

    That wont help his draft stock. 3rd round bargain perhaps.

    I'd love that . Not like DT's rely heavily on agility, shouldn't be a huge problem for him to come back the same in 10-12 months.

    Sporting News' Matt Hayes tweeted that he's talked to multiple NFL scouts who considered Florida senior DT Dominique Easley a top 10 talent for the 2014 draft.
    Our own Josh Norris recently listed Easley as the No. 12 draft-eligible prospect in the country, so the statement is certainly in the realm of possibility. That all changes now that Easley tore the ACL and meniscus in his right knee during practice on Tuesday, sidelining him for the rest of the season. Easley also tore the ACL in his left knee during 2011. Sep 26 - 9:33 AM
