Back with a vengeance

Gators strong-side linebacker (or BUCK, defensive end, Joker, etc.) Ronald Powell has wreaked havoc early in 2013 after missing all of last season with multiple ACL injuries. 

While Florida's overall sack numbers remain low, the Gators' -- ranked No. 1 in the SEC in passing, rushing, total and scoring defense -- pressure on the quarterback has steadily improved from a year ago.

Powell's return is a major reason why. 

The redshirt junior tops No. 20 Florida in sacks (2.0), tackles for loss (4.0) and quarterback hurries (5). 

On Tuesday, Powell dished on a number of topics including his pass-rushing partner (Dante Fowler Jr.), Dominique Easley's pre-snap barrel roll, defensive line coach Brad Lawing's teachings and more.
