Senior Bowl Watch List Features 4 Gators

The Florida Gators had two players on last year's Senior Bowl roster and early indications are they could be adding even more players next year. The team has four players on this season's Senior Bowl watch list.

The Gators included are inside linebacker Jonathan Bostic, outside linebacker Lerentee McCray, offensive lineman Xavier Nixon and kicker Caleb Sturgis.

Bostic was a full-time starter as a junior and racked up 94 tackles and three sacks. McCray played in just nine games last season, recording 24 tackles and 1.5 sacks.

Nixon started nine games last season at left tackle. He was a member of the SEC All-Freshman Team in 2009.

The most heralded of the four is Sturgis. He was a finalist for the Lou Groza Award last season after making 22 of 26 field goals and all 31 of his extra point attempts. His longest field goal in 2011 was 55 yards.
