Spring position preview: LB

To get ready for the start of spring practice on March 14, GatorNation is doing position-by-position previews, breaking down the depth chart for one position each weekday. Today, we'll analyze the linebackers. Thursday will be the cornerbacks.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida's linebackers were the strength of the defense in 2011, and there will be little change in the starting lineup in 2012.

The goal this spring, however, is to find some quality depth behind starters Lerentee McCray, Jonathan Bostic and Jelani Jenkins. Several players showed promise in the limited playing time they got last season -- notably Michael Taylor and Graham Stewart -- and there will be only two additions to the position next season.
