Three Florida football players have been named to preseason watch lists for national awards.

The Maxwell Football Club announced Monday that quarterback Jeff Driskel is on the watch list for the Maxwell Award, while defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. and cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III were named to the Bednarik Award watch list.

The Maxwell Award goes to the college player of the year. The Bednarik Award is presented to the nation's top defensive player each year.

There were 76 players named to each of the two watch lists Monday. Semifinalists for both awards will be announced Nov. 3.
