Florida's Dante Fowler Thinks The Gators Have 7 Future First-Round Picks In Their Defensive Backfield

Former Florida defensive end Dante Fowler was selected No. 3 overall in this past year's NFL Draft. He seems to think many of his teammates will join him as first-round material in the coming years.

Fowler, chiming in on the Florida vs. LSU "D.B.U." debate, suggested on Twitter Tuesday morning that UF has seven defensive backs who will be taken in the first round eventually. He also mentioned that the only Tiger he respects is Jalen Mills.

Fowler listed Vernon Hargreaves, Keanu Neal, Jalen Tabor, Brian Poole, JC Jackson, Quincy Wilson and Marcus Maye.

Obviously, seven of Florida's defensive backs won't be chosen in the first round. But it's great to see that Fowler is standing up for his guys, even though he's moved on to the NFL. LSU fans would probably disagree.
