It’s really nice to see former Gators defensive end Dante Fowler back on the field during NFL training camp, even if it’s just practice.
The elite pass rusher was selected by Jacksonville with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, but was unable to show off his skills last season after suffering a torn ACL on his first day of rookie mini-camp. It was an injury that cost him his rookie season and left fans concerned whether he would regain his burst as an edge pass rusher.
On Wednesday, Fowler may have answered questions about whether he still has “it.”
The former Gator was showing Jaguars fans just what they were missing last season by schooling offensive linemen during drills:

Gators fans are familiar with those moves. Fowler racked up 15 tackles for loss, including 8.5 sacks, during his final season at Florida in 2014.
At just 22 years old, Fowler has plenty of time to become one of the NFL’s elite pass rushers in spite of the early setback in his professional career.
