Athlon Sports lists just one Gator among its Top 40 in the SEC



First the SEC coaches. Then the SEC media. Now more signs that, at least from the outside, not much is expected of Florida football this season.

Athlon Sports today released its Top 40 players in the SEC - and the Gators have just one player on the list. Sophomore DL Sharrif Floyd is ranked No. 39, just ahead of Georgia kicker Blair Walsh.

The Top 10, according to Athlon, are: 1. WR Alshon Jeffery (South Carolina); 2. RB Marcus Lattimore (South Carolina); 3. RB Trent Richardson (Alabama); 4. OL Barrett Jones (Alabama); 5. DE Devin Taylor (South Carolina); 6. S Mark Barron (Alabama); QB Aaron Murray (Georgia); 8. LB Dont'a Hightower (Alabama); 9. RB Knile Davis (Arkansas) and 10. DE Jake Bequette (Arkansas).

Florida LB Jelani Jenkins was mentioned in the "just missed" category at No. 44.
