    Former Florida Gators Roberson, Purifoy go undrafted; Watkins picked by Eagles

    A year ago, Florida cornerbacks Marcus Roberson and Loucheiz Purifoy were touted as potential first-round NFL Draft prospects, but even after 35 cornerbacks heard their name called over the three-day event, Roberson and Purifoy did not.

In this Sept. 17, 2011, file photo, Florida defensive tackle Dominique Easley (2) celebrates after tackling Tennessee running back Tauren Poole behind the line of scrimmage during the first half of an NCAA college football game in Gainesville, Fla. Easley was selected in the first round, 29th overall, by the new England Patriots in the NFL draft on May 8, 2014.


    Florida Gators’ cornerbacks waiting to hear names called

    Despite five cornerbacks finding homes in Thursday’s first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, Florida’s talented trio of defensive backs — Jaylen Watkins, Marcus Roberson and Loucheiz Purifoy — did not hear their names called during Friday’s second and third round.

    New England Patriots take Florida Gators’ Dominique Easley

    For much of Thursday’s first round of the NFL Draft, the Florida Gators were a punchline. ESPN and NFL Network rolled countless highlights displaying prospects shredding the Gators during their abysmal 4-8 season. But former Florida defensive tackle Dominique Easley eventually got the last laugh.

UF’s Dominique Easley, right, bears down on Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in the Suger Bowl on Jan. 2, 2013. Easley’s UF career was ended in September because of a knee injury.

    College football: Joe vs. the Pro, Week 12

    Few people outside of Boca Raton have noticed, but Florida Atlantic has made steady progress throughout the season. First, coach Carl Pelini has instilled some of his Rust Belt toughness into the Owls and, as the 2012 season nears its finish for FAU, the program appears to be moving in the right direction after that regrettable 1-11 record in the final season of the Howard Schnellenberger Era. The same team that began the season with a 7-3 victory against Wagner has won two of its past three games and gave Navy a scare in Annapolis, Md. Against the spread, FAU has covered in eight consecutive weeks. Joe Goodman, The Miami Herald’s national college football columnist, is a lot like FAU in terms of picking games this season. He started slowly but has built some positive momentum. Last week, Joe took a slight step backwards, going 4-4 straight up and 3-4-1 against the spread, but, overall, Joe is 63-25 straight up and 43-39-1 against the spread. The Pro, Lee Sterling of, went 5-3 straight up last week and 3-4-1 against the spread. For the season, the Pro is a stellar 65-23 straight up and 46-36-1 against the spread.


    College football: Joe vs. the Pro, Week 10

    Joe can count on his hand the number of times he has finished a week above .500 against the spread in the past three seasons. Amazingly, last week was one of those times.


    College football: Joe vs. the Pro, Week 8

    For the second consecutive week, Joe and the Pro finished with identical records both straight up and against the spread.
