    Derrick Harvey was a defensive end for Urban Meyer’s Florida Gators from 2004 to 2007. He came to Gainesville as a Parade All American, and he did not fail to meet lofty expectations. After being redshirted in 2004 so he could bulk up to 230 pounds, he erupted on the field with veterans Ray McDonald and Jarvis Moss. In 2006, Harvey was named second-team All-SEC while he split playing time with McDonald. In his redshirt sophomore campaign he recorded 11 sacks, including 3 against Ohio State in the national championship game in which he was named Defensive MVP. Team captain Derrick Harvey only notched 8.5 sacks and 17 TFL (10th best season TFL in Gator history) in his redshirt junior year of 2007, but he was still named second-team All-SEC. He ranks 9th all-time with 20.5 career sacks and 3rd all-time with 51.5 TFL. He was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars with pick #8 in the 2008 NFL Draft, and was the first defensive end chosen in Jaguars franchise history. He played with the Jaguars until 2010 before spending a year each with the Denver Broncos and the Cincinnati Bengals. He is currently a self-employed entrepreneur living in the Washington, D.C. area.
