Kelvin Taylor, Demarcus Robinson To Declare For NFL Draft

The Florida Gators offense was drastically improved this year under news head coach Jim McElwain, but they'll have to replace two of their offensive stars. McElwain announced on Monday that running back Kelvin Taylor and wide receiver Demarcus Robinson would declare for the NFL Draft following their matchup with Michigan in the Citrus Bowl.

Taylor, a former five-star recruit, rushed for 985 yards and 13 touchdowns on 248 carries this season. Prior to this season, he had never rushed for over 565 yards and six touchdown in a season. 

Robinson had a disappointing year in 2015, catching 47 passes for 505 yards and two touchdowns in 2015 after recording 810 yards and seven touchdowns last season. He consistently ran into trouble off the field, however, as he was suspended four different times during his three-year career.

Taylor is expected to be a mid- to late-round selection, while Robinson is thought to be a borderline first- or second-round pick.

Florida and Michigan will play in the Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl on Friday, Jan. 1 at 1:00 pm ET on ABC.
