  • There was a good draft matchup in this game with Kentucky right tackle Darian Kinnard taking on some quality Gator defensive linemen. Florida defensive lineman Zachary Carter is having a good senior season that is helping his draft stock. After an impressive performance versus Alabama, Carter played well against Tennessee. Brenton Cox has been a strong edge rusher for Florida as well, so either edge lineman would be a good challenge for Kinnard regardless of who lined up where.

    Overall, Kinnard had a good showing against the Gators. He was tough in the ground game and did a steady job in pass protection. Kinnard allowed some penetration to Cox on a few plays when Kinnard bent at the waist. That led to Kinnard reaching after Cox and the Gator edge rusher closing in the pocket. Kinnard does not have the feet and agility of a left tackle in the NFL, but he could be a quality starting right tackle or very good guard.


  • Florida defensive lineman Carter is having an excellent senior year, and that continued against Kentucky. In the second quarter, Carter bull rushed through the left tackle to sack quarterback Will Levis. Throughout the night, Carter was a force in the ground game and got the better of the Wildcats' left tackle.

    Carter (6-4, 285) is similar to former Gators defensive lineman Jonathan Bullard. They both are tweener defensive end/tackles. Bullard was drafted into the wrong scheme as a 3-4 defensive end, and that led to him not panning out for the Chicago Bears. Both players have the weight of a defensive end and the height of a defensive tackle. Carter has some quickness, functional strength, and plays hard. Some area scouts have told me they think for the NFL his best fit would be to continue to add some weight and be a three-technique tackle in a 4-3 defense. Carter could be a second-day pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
