DEFENSIVE END

[+] EnlargeZach Mettenberger, Dominique Easley
Jake Roth/US PresswireFlorida's depth at defensive end will be impacted by the NFL draft decision of junior Dominique Easley.
Two-deep: Dominique Easley is the starter at end and Lerentee McCray is the starter at the buck (end/linebacker hybrid). Jonathan Bullard and Dante Fowler are the reserves. McCray graduates. Easley is a junior but could leave early for the NFL.
