“Since I’ve been here, that’s all I’ve heard about: We didn’t have any receivers that could catch or make the big plays that guys used to make,” said receiver Solomon Patton, a senior who made minimal impact in his first three years.
That appears to be changing, though the shift is so subtle and gradual that it is easy to overlook. No. 17 Florida still lacks an overwhelming playmaker who dwells in the nightmares of opposing cornerbacks, but the Gators are getting solid and sufficient production from a trio of receivers who had been fairly quiet until now.
