Florida junior defensive end Dante Fowler said he will speak with outgoing Gators coach Will Muschamp about whether he should enter the draft.
Fowler told gatorbait.net -- a Florida-centric website -- Tuesday that he and Muschamp will meet "at the appropriate time. Definitely me and him are going to sit down and talk, with me and my family."
Fowler (6-foot-3, 260 pounds), in his second season as a starter, leads the Gators with 10 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks. While those aren't necessarily eye-popping stats, Fowler is a disruptive presence who is a focal point of opposition blockers. He had a sack and 2.5 tackles for loss against Georgia and 11 total stops against LSU.
Florida coaches do a good job of moving Fowler around in an effort to get one-on-one matchups, and he also has 15 quarterback hurries and two forced fumbles this season for a unit that ranks 20th nationally in total defense. Fowler runs well laterally, and his versatility -- he can line up at either end or at linebacker -- would be a major selling point.
