Uncensored Sound Off: Easley drafted in the first round

Despite his immense talent level, after suffering two ACL injuries during his four years in Gainesville, many projected former Florida Gators defensive lineman Dominique Easley to be drafted no higher then the second or third round.

However, he snuck into the bottom half of the first round when New England choose him with the No. 29 pick overall - becoming the seventh Gators player selected by the Patriots since 2004.

Easley played in 32 games, starting 26 starts for Florida, recording 72 tackles and 5 1/2 sacks.

Check out what some of your favorite Gators and some well-known analysts had to say about the choice.
