Chomping at Bits comes stocked with the best Florida Gators links and news we can find, and maybe some other stuff.
Florida drops first 2021 depth chart: More analysis later today, but the obvious spots to take note of are right tackle, where Jean Delance persists; slot receiver, where we see the greatest wide receiver of all time; and the corner spot opposite Kaiir Elam, where Avery Helm is, er, at the helm.

Wilcoxson came to Florida in 2020 as an early-enrolling defensive back who hadn’t found a spot; lately, he’d been working more at safety, and he was fairly likely to play in a reserve role this fall. His recovery from what Mullen termed a “knee issue” seems likely to keep him out for at least a significant period of this season.
