Florida Gators: Sanders Commings
The Gators might have another first-round pick in today’s group and two other players who might not get drafted. S Matt Elam has been projected to go late in the first round -- most often to New England with the 29th pick -- after a junior season in which he was named an All-American. S Josh Evans and K Caleb Sturgis might very well not get drafted in April. Sturgis is one of the nation’s top kickers, but some teams are reluctant to draft kickers even in the later rounds if they have other needs. Then again, there are the Jacksonville Jaguars, who drafted a punter in the third round.

Four future SEC opponents are in action, including next week’s foe LSU. Here’s a breakdown of what the Gators and their fans should pay attention to in each game:
Tennessee (3-1, 0-1 SEC) at Georgia (4-0, 2-0), 3:30 p.m.
It appears the Bulldogs will be at full strength on defense for the first time this season because all indications are that All-American S Bacarri Rambo and starting LB Alec Ogletree will make their season debuts. The two had been suspended for the first four games of the season for violating team and university rules.
Georgia has looked pretty good defensively without those two anyway, ranking eighth in the SEC in total defense (343.2 yards per game), eighth in rush defense (135.5 ypg) and sixth in pass defense (207.8 ypg). But adding Ogletree to a linebacking corps that includes Jarvis Jones (4.5 sacks) gives the Bulldogs more big-play potential.
Rambo’s return means Sanders Commings, who along with LB Chase Vasser was suspended for the first two games, can go back to his cornerback spot. Those guys will have several games to get up to speed before the Florida-Georgia game on Oct. 27.
