Wet & Wild: Gators Pro Day (as told via Twitter)

GAINESVILLE -- Confession: I was not at Florida's 2014 Pro Day on a soggy and cold Monday morning in Gainesville. 

Sleep deprived after arriving home from the Southeastern Conference tournament in the wee hours Monday, I missed the annual event (traditionally) held in The Swamp. 

But fear not, others were there to document a rainy day full of NFL personnel and a dozen former Florida players working out, highlighted by its three ballyhooed cornerbacks -- Marcus Roberson, Loucheiz Purifoy and Jaylen Watkins -- and former No. 1 overall recruit DE/LB Ronald Powell. 

Without further adieu, Florida's Pro Day as told on Twitter.

AN OMINOUS START...

Georgia Southern owns this house!

Fitting weather for what is coming next football season, bawaahhaaa

Don't be jealous little cane clown. We will have more players drafted than you once again. We will also have more players picked earlier than you once again.
We have more interest from the NFL, more NFL people are in Gainesville than will ever go to Miami for your sorry players.
In case you missed it, your run has been over for more than a decade, in the 21rst century you have sucked and continue to suck.
Gator Nation is alive and well.
Go Gators

Jlo - dont let the fact get in the way, you cluck!

The Hurricanes hold the record for most players selected in the first round in a single draft (6, in 2004)
Most first-round draft picks in a two-year period (11, from 2003 to 2004)
Most first-round draft picks in a three-year period (15, from 2002 through 2004)
Most first-round picks in a four-year period (19, from 2001 through 2004).
For a 14-year period, from 1994 through 2008, the University of Miami had at least one player selected in the first round of the NFL Draft, a NFL Draft record.
The Miami Hurricanes are also 10th overall on the NFL's all-time number of draft picks with 315.
As of the 2013 NFL season, UM has the most players active in the NFL of any university in the nation, with 44, including players on NFL Practice Squads
As of the 2013 NFL Draft, Miami now has had at least one NFL draft pick in every draft since 1975, each of the last 39 NFL drafts, one of the longest streaks among FBS programs.
The Hurricanes once had a streak of 149 consecutive regular season weeks where a former Hurricane scored a touchdown in an NFL game; the streak started in Week 15 of the 2002 NFL regular season and ended in Week 11 of the 2011 season.[4] During the streak, 33 different former Hurricanes scored touchdowns and a total of 661 touchdowns were scored.
From the 2001 Miami Hurricanes football team alone, 42 players went on to be drafted into the NFL from (2002-2006), including 17 1st round picks.[5][6]
The Hurricanes have had at least one former player make the Pro Bowl every season since 1985, 28 years in a row.

The U is not your rival! We are!!! -Georgia Southern

Georgia beat you down in your house! Oh, excuse me....Georgia southern rotflmao!

To the dummy above, THOSE AREN'T SPORTS! The only one that counts, your bid12 assistants cant beat a div ll team with confidence. Heck,muschump lost to one of them. 4-8. Coaching players up to block each other and that turned out to be their biggest play of the game,yardage wise,and the worst play in NCAA history at the same time. U suck! Urcoaches suck! I've been to your decrepit stadium and it sucks too!

Muschamp must be fired. He did ok with urbans playersbut now that they are leaving,being kicked off the team,or in prison we have 4-8. Texas was about to fire him for a reason. UF stepped in and saved him from being a position coach. Thats what we have, a position coach.

No ncaa records, no undefeated seasons, no respect, no coaches, noline,

We used to have grit.

Ufelons never had true grit

Little Miami Moron it is you who cannot accept facts and cannot see the truth. Who cares about your long list of cane stats from ancient history. You have been informed several times that the canes haven't done squat in a decade, yet your rebuttal is citing crap that happened more than a decade ago. How stupid can you be?
The only thing I give you from your long list of irrelevant historical data is that you do have the most active NFL players right now. But realize that is quickly changing. Most of those numbers came from " the 2001 Miami Hurricanes football team alone, 42 players went on to be drafted into the NFL ".
2001 is a long time ago dummy, flash forward to the here and now, you are falling behind. Today you have a streak of NO players taken in the first or second round. Today you suck. Get some reading comprehension, get a clue, stop living in the past, join the rest of us in the 21rst century.
Even after having a historically bad season we will still have more players drafted than you and we will have them taken much earlier than you.
All you can come up with is Ga Southern or Aaron Hernandez, which means nothing. Keep ignoring the facts and the truth, it's what you do second best. Other than acting like a Moron.

Lol jlo...ask muschump and foley if they meam anything. As recruits and their parents.

jlo, so childish, read again, a few of those stats are as of last year draft and ongoing and a few ongoing since the 80's. Now admit that you have cane envy and that your mother washes the towels for the football team and no you cant wear a jock strap on your head and pretend your Darth Vader.
