SEC Media Days 2014: Florida's Jeff Driskel, Dante Fowler, Vernon Hargreaves to attend

USA TODAY Sports

The three most important players on Florida's roster will be Florida's three players in Hoover.

2014's SEC Media Days are just a week away, and we finally know who's going for which schools thanks to an SEC release this Wednesday afternoon. Florida's selections are no-brainers: Redshirt junior quarterback Jeff Driskel, junior defensive end Dante Fowler, Jr, and sophomore cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III.

Driskel's been to Media Days before, making the trip with Dominique Easley and Jon Halapio in 2013, but it will be a first sojourn to Hoover, Alabama for both Fowler and Hargreaves. And given that this is the first year of Will Muschamp's four as Florida's head coach that no seniors are headed to Hoover, and the first time a sophomore has been brought to town, it's probably a good sign.

Muschamp and Florida can trust Driskel to say generally innocuous and non-embarrassing things, but we knew that, because he was brought along last year. Muschamp and Florida trusting Fowler, who is mostly a teddy bear off the field, and Hargreaves, who'e been speaking like an NFL vet in interviews since high school, is a welcome improvement on a reticence to give reporters access to the most interesting and important Gators.

Driskel, Fowler, and Hargreaves are almost inarguably the most interesting and important Gators heading into the 2014 season — I can't even come up with someone else I would rather see Florida take — and they will be empowered to speak for themselves and others, instead of having someone else speak for them. That's a nice honor and show of respect for them by the program.

But this is also one of those duties that leaders perform, and those three players being public emissaries for Florida is a good indication that they will be trusted to be leaders for the Gators on and off the field in 2014.

And I think that is a good indication that Florida will be in good hands.
