Day 11 of the 2022 Florida Gators Fall Camp is again A hot day. An increasing number of players wearing non-contact jerseys are not playing during the media viewing practice window and must enjoy their time in the shade whenever they get the chance.
You can find AllGators observations from the media viewing section of the exercise below, as well as our notebooks for each day of the camp so far this year. From day 3 we have individually overlaid the position to maximize the viewing window, although AllGators‘ time was shortened due to attendance, we spent a few minutes checking the proximal group eleven days.
- Day 1 – Offense
- Second Day – Defense
- Day 3 – Wide receiver
- Day 4 – Linebacker
- Day 5 – Running Back
- Day 6 – Defensive Line
- Day 7 Day 8 – Cornerback
- Day 9 – Quarterback
- Day 10 – Stormtroopers
focus on both ends of the tension
We got about 5 minutes out of 14 minutes watching tight ends after other duties, so our analysis for this unit is not as in-depth as for other job groups. For this, we apologize.
However, AllGators witnessed tight ends working along the offensive line in running game installations. As noted throughout the offseason, the Gators are expected to increase their use of 12 men (two sets of tight end combinations) and the gap (power) sprint program, which was evident throughout Tuesday’s five-minute game.
OL and TE are divided into two groups of approximately two units each, which are rotated every few reps after the various concepts are installed.
First team tight ends tend to be junior Keon Zipperer and redshirt junior Dante Zanders
, as expected, although redshirt freshman Freshman Nick Elksnes is also seen as a starter with the projected Players break the rotation together. Elksness is also with sophomore Jonathan Odom
as A member of the second team.
These four players are expected to get the most minutes on this year’s roster, especially given the addition of 12 players. Zipperer has the most game experience in the group, while Zanders has been impressive from the defensive line back to the tight end in the spring, while Elksnis and Odom are recovering from various shoulder injuries.

We’ve pointed out in a previous position focus that players lining up in practice doesn’t necessarily reflect where they are on the depth chart. However, the units were consistent throughout training, with the first and second teams in line with our depth map projections for the upcoming season.
In addition to real freshmen Arlis Boardingham was seen attending personal training.
The following is part of a practice session with players seen wearing non-contact jerseys throughout the media viewing. Asterisks indicate players working on the sidelines or watching practices, not on the field. This list does not include quarterbacks because they must wear non-contact jerseys at all times.

Also, quarterback Jack Miller III Not observed in the facility during viewing. Wide receiver Xzavier Henderson
Neither, marking the first time for both players Did not fall.
QB Jalen Kitna is there, however, this sign With his first appearance at the facility from day four to practice viewing windows, except the day of training, he is recovering from a minor surgery on his knee.
Pearsall, Marshall and Boardingham continue to wear non-contact as they recover from various injuries, wear their jerseys and work with trainers on one side of the practice range. Powell-Ryland joined their sidelines for the first time on Tuesday before walking across the field to watch his position group work out. The same goes for safety Rashad Torrence II
, although he wears a standard blue jersey for practise.
Tuesday was the second day in a row that Ventrell Miller was in the viewing window, even though he was wearing a non-contact jersey. Weston, meanwhile, put back on his non-contact jersey on Monday after working on the wing.
cornerbackJayden Hill due to undisclosed Injured offseason and has yet to play this fall, but players in non-contact jerseys have been seen stretching.
Clip of the day
Apologies for the lack of extractable footage, but below is the reserve offensive line and a pair of back-up tight ends for Hansen and Isaac who are working on gap plans to run installs. Hansen and offensive tackle Camlyn Waiters
partner hit, successfully transferring his responsibility to Weitz, and climbed to the second level.
