The Gators got one heck of a quarterback class for the 2007 season, all of which are highly rated and ready to compete for playing time on next year's team.  They, of course, will be behind Tim Tebow on the depth chart, but have seen Urban Meyer use the two quarterback system quite a bit in 2006.  Really, any of these guys could get a shot based on how they perform in practice.
