The Florida Gators already had one secondary member (Marcus Maye) drafted in the second round and another has been called as well.

Teez Tabor was just taken with the 53rd pick in the 2nd round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions!

Tabor is the third Gator to be selected in this year’s draft, joining linebacker Jarrad Davis who was selected 21st overall by the Detroit Lions on Thursday as well as Maye who was taken by the Jets. So, Tabor joins his teammate Jarrad on a Lions defense that is getting bolstered in a big way.

Congrats to Tabor and best of luck to him in the league!
