Spring position preview: CB

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 cornerbacks. Friday will be the safeties.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida's pass defense was among the best in the nation in 2011, but while the Gators did a good job limiting opponents' yardage, they weren't as successful in creating turnovers.

UF intercepted just eight passes last season, which tied for the second-lowest single-season total in school history (UF picked off just seven passes in 2002 and 1946). Only 19 schools in the nation intercepted fewer passes than the Gators.
