McElwain: Florida roster 'really insufficient' in some areas

Remember when Will Muschamp raved about the roster he was leaving to the next coach of the Florida Gators? Well, Jim McElwain doesn’t see it that way.

On Friday, the first-year Gators coach wasn't shy when asked about some of the depth issues facing his team this spring, especially those on the offensive side of the ball.

“You’ve got to play the hand you’re dealt,” McElwain told reporters. “And right now, quite honestly, the hand we’re dealt is really insufficient at some of the areas.”

The main area of concern is on the offensive line, where Florida has just eight scholarship players and seven healthy enough to practice this spring, but it doesn’t stop there. Running back and linebacker also are dangerously thin heading into McElwain’s first season.
