NFL Draft shows lack of talent at UF last two seasons: It's easy to see why the Gators have struggled the past two years. Only two Florida players are predicted to taken in the draft. (Robbie Andreu, Gainesville Sun)

Chris Rainey's on the clock: Rainey will be Florida's highest draft choice. He'll likely hear his name called sometime in between the late second round or fourth round. Now he just has to wait. (Rick Brown, The Lakeland Ledger)

Janoris Jenkins could be a steal: With the right support, Michael Irvin says. I agree. He's a top-15 talent, but his mistakes have driven his value down to a possible second-round selection. If he can get himself together, someone's going to get a bargain. (Ryan Wilson, CBSSports)

Bryant Young recounts his draft story: Young elected to spend draft day with his family as opposed to in NYC. (Scott Carter GatorZone)

Lauren Embree named Player of the Year: Six other women's tennis players were honored also. (Gainesville Sun)

Baseball team bounced back: With a 10-1 beatdown of Bethune-Cookman. (Kevin Brockway, Gainesville Sun)

Al Horford to miss first round of playoffs: Tough break for Horford and the Hawks. They were hoping to have him ready for the playoffs, at least in a limited role, but he's not quite ready. (Chris Vivlamore, Atlanta Journal Constitution)

NBA rookie rankings: Chandler Parsons finished the season at No. 7, which is pretty great considering he was taken 38th overall. (Sebastian Pruiti, Grantland)
