    32, 1 – Reggie Nelson

    Reggie F’in Nelson of Melbourne, Florida played free safety under Urban Meyer at the University of Florida from 2005-2006 after earning his associate’s degree at Coffeyville Community College. Although his stint in Gainesville was short, he certainly racked up some highlight reel tackles as a ball hawk and as a ferocious hitter. As a junior, he was selected to the Gator Leadership Committee, was pivotal in the team’s national championship run, and recorded 51 tackles, 5 passes defended, and 6 interceptions. He was 1st-team All SEC, Consensus All American, Jack Tatum Trophy winner (2006) and team MVP. Imagine what he could have done if he were here for more than two seasons! Reggie was the 21st pick of the 2007 NFL Draft for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Note: Reggie F’n Nelson wore jersey #32 when he first arrived in Gainesville, but is remembered wearing the #1 jersey.

      I know the team could have benefited the team if he stayed one more year because that 2007 defense was swiss cheese especially in pass defense.
