No. 16 Dominique Easley

Position: Defensive tackle

School: Florida

Height: 6-foot-2

Weight: 283 pounds

Year: Senior

Why he's No. 16: Easley came to Florida with five-star hype and was heading towards a big sophomore year in 2011 before suffering a torn ACL against Florida State. He wasn't back all the way as a junior and had to sit out the Kentucky and Vandy games with swelling in the knee. But in his last six games he had four sacks and was one of the few bright spots in the Sugar Bowl loss with 3.5 tackles for a loss. Easley has played every defensive line position and appears ready for a breakout season this year if he can stay healthy. He has a great first step and an engine that never quits.
