Gators Scrimmage Recap: Trey Burton Remains A Mystery

Trey Burton is listed as 6-foot-3, 228 pound running back on the Florida Gators roster. But Burton is a very versatile player that gives head coach Will Muschamp a utility-type player that can be used in a variety of ways.

Andy Hutchins, author of Florida Gators football blog Alligator Army, attended the Gators open practice on Saturday and gave his thoughts on Burton and the conundrum that his versatility presents:

... he's still a jack of all trades and master of none; he's not fast enough to outrun everyone, not big enough to overpower many, not a good enough blocker to demand playing time as a fullback, not a good enough route-runner to see time at wide receiver. He practiced with the wideouts for much of Saturday, but I have no idea if that means anything. If Burton gets deployed in his ideal situation, as a sort of plug-anywhere Swiss Army back, I think he can still be productive.
