The effects of the talent drain under Muschamp and McDeathThreats is manifesting itself as a decline in NFL and CFL talent, which is down 18 players from last year. Florida is still #3 with active NFL players (35) behind Ohio State (45) and Alabama (56). The Gators' 35/42 (83.33%) active/total roster percentage is also down from years before.
