Mullen searching for flexibility within the roster

March 13, 2019

A lot of familiar faces remain on this Florida Gators football roster, however, this spring several players are rotating through different positions on both offense and defense.  

The idea of searching for players with the ability of playing multiple positions is nothing new for Florida head coach Dan Mullen, as he expects his guys to learn new positions and become flexible in different schemes.  

"I don't like having positions on anybody. The more flexibility you have, the harder you are to match up on.

This is why I am most interested to see what they do with Burney because at his size, 6'2 / 225, and he could be a LB or a FS and could really cause some match up issues for the offense. In addition, he has some really good cover skills even if they wanted him to be in that STAR position.

Have to imagine there would not be a lot of HB or TE that could lose him in coverage and with his speed I could totally see him taking V Josephs role and not having the down side of the bust coverage.
