Maybe it’s too early to hand out nicknames to Visesio “Junior” Salt and Damien Jacobs, like “Salt n' Pepper,” but Florida’s most recent defensive tackle additions are expected to make a big contribution next season.

There is a reason Florida went hard after these two junior college prospects -- the Gators need experienced men who can contribute immediately and be leaders for the younger and often-immature players on the roster. Salt, who graduated high school in 2006, and Jacobs will bring more of a veteran feel to the interior of Florida’s line.

Florida also returns Omar Hunter, Sharrif Floyd, Dominique Easley, Leon Orr and Tevin Westbrook at tackle next year.
