    In 2019 the Gators started the season with their deepest offensive line in maybe a decade, but the line failed to get the push required to open up the running game.

    Left Tackle
    1. RJR Stone Forsythe 6-6 315 West Orange HS, Winter Garden FL. 3-star.
    2. RFR Richard Gouraige 6-5 250 Cambridge HS. Tampa, FL 4-star.

    The starting five were mostly upperclassmen with plenty of experience, but their performance was rather underwhelming for such an experienced unit. Last year the Florida offensive line ranked #93 in “line yards per carry” with 2.38 (Clemson was #1 with 3.18, Ohio State and LSU were tied at #7 with 2.96), #115 in “standard down line yards”, #20 in “passing downs line yards per carry”, #117 in “power success rate”, #97 in “stuff rate”, and #53 in sack rate. The only statistical category where the offensive line shined was in "passing downs line yards per carry".
