Florida CB Teez Tabor Announces He Is Entering The NFL Draft

Florida cornerback Teez Tabor is forgoing his senior season and heading to the NFL Draft.

Tabor announced his decision in "A Letter to the Gator Nation" on the Players Tribune. He is projected to be a likely first-round pick.

An excerpt of Tabor's letter appears below:

Now that the season is over, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and have been feeling pretty nostalgic. I’ve also realized something: The University of Florida has changed my life. And I don’t mean that in the cliché way. I mean every single syllable of it. Every day, I’m walking around campus thinking this is some sort of dream. I am fully aware that I would have never gotten this far on my own, and I’m thankful to everybody who helped me get here. I have matured so much since that first day. In my mind, that’s because of the people I have met in Gainesville. They’re the ones who have molded me into who I am today. And I want to take the time to explain why Florida has meant so much to me for the past three years.

This season, Tabor recorded 33 tackles and led the Gators with four interceptions. He also tied for the team lead with six pass breakups.

Tabor's teammate in the secondary, Quincy Wilson, is also leaving for the NFL Draft and is expected to go in the first round. Slot cornerback Duke Dawson will be returning to school.
