Gators building depth, chemistry at LB 

February, 29, 2012
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- After failing to stop the run against bigger, more physical teams such as Alabama and LSU in 2011, Florida head coach Will Muschamp has made it a priority to get bigger and add depth to his linebacker group.

The Gators finished sixth in the SEC in rush defense with 153 rushing yards allowed per game. Florida, however, surrendered 226 yards to Alabama and 238 yards to LSU in embarrassing losses.

Jon Bostic and Jelani Jenkins didn't play poorly last season, but were at times inconsistent. With a lack of depth, the two were often worn out by the end of games.
