With spring practices in the books, Inside the Gators saw its subscribers submit a number of questions they had about the Florida football team. After running part 1 on Thursday and part 2 on Friday, today we answer questions about key contributors on defense.


From g8rhoo: Is Kyree Campbell a legit option as a third defensive tackle? Was there any discussion of moving Jachai Polite inside?

Watnick: I’m going to see more from Florida’s backups at defensive tackle behind Khairi Clark and Taven Bryan before I make any definitive statements answering that question.
