Gators counting on Jordan on offensive line


Although he’s not listed as a starter on the depth chart, Florida junior Tyler Jordan might just be the MVP on the offensive line. Because he is providing depth across the board, seeing reps at all five positions in practice.

“It’s invaluable, and he’s had a really good camp,” UF coach Jim McElwain said. “He’s played basically all five spots. He’s a guy that we’re going to count on and we’re going to count on him in our heavy package as well. Some of the things that we have personnel formationally, he’s been a guy that’s really picked it up and done a great job for us.”

Jordan, who has started games at center, guard and tackle, is listed as the backup at left tackle, left guard and center. He’s also capable of playing right guard and tackle if there’s a need.
