@TomLuginbill What can Ermon Lane bring to the #Gators passing attack? #AskLoogs

Strength, speed and a penchant for making big plays. I truly believe that in two years, with the likes of Lane and current Gator Demarcus Robinson in the receiving corps, we will be seeing an entirely different group of athletes at Florida for whoever is the quarterback.

This position has been a thorn in the side of Florida fans since the 2008 season. Lane is capable of being a threat at all three levels of the passing game. He’s quick enough to make the underneath grab and turn a 5-yard catch in to a huge play after the catch, yet also big and physical enough to be a factor on the jump ball and in the red area on contested matchups. Lane adds size, which is something they don’t have too much of right now with the likes of Solomon Patton. Regardless of what Lane brings, the Gators must also decide what they want to be on offense to maximize the skill of the quarterback and thus maximize the ability to create matchups with their perimeter people.
