Draft Scout *Alex Anzalone News
10/01/17 - OLB Alex Anzalone (shoulder) was injured in the first quarter and did not return for the Saints in their game against the Dolphins on Sunday in London.
09/12/17 - LB Alex Anzalone started at weak-side linebacker ahead of Craig Robertson, the Saints' leading tackler last season. Anzalone is a rookie third-round draft choice from Florida.
01/04/17 - Oft-injured Florida linebacker Alex Anzalone is forgoing his final year of college eligibility and entering the NFL draft. A fourth-year junior who missed 20 games over the last four years because of injuries, Anzalone announced his decision Wednesday. He joins cornerback Quincy Wilson and offensive tackle David Sharpe in leaving the Gators (9-4) early to turn pro. Cornerback Jalen Tabor and defensive tackle Caleb Brantley are expected to join them. Anzalone will be a wild card in the draft. The Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, native has shown flashes of talent when healthy - he was the team's third-leading tackler this season - but he's spent considerable time on the sideline and in the training room. He played in just two games in 2015 because of a right shoulder injury and missed the final five games this season because of a broken left arm. - AP Sports
01/04/17 - Gators linebacker Alex Anzalone is forgoing his final year of eligibility but not before saying goodbye to Florida fans..."Thank you Coach (Will) Muschamp and Coach (D.J.) Durkin for giving an opportunity to a kid from a small town in Pennsylvania who wanted to live his dream. Thank you Coach (Jim) McElwain, Coach (Randy) Shannon, Coach (Geoff) Collins, Coach (Chris) Rumph and all of the other coaches and staff who believed in me when not many people did. All of you have helped get me to this point in my life. Not only has this staff brought our winning culture back on the field, they have positively impacted all of my teammates' lives, including mine. The University of Florida has prepared me well to embrace my decision to enter the NFL Draft. I will forever bleed Orange and Blue. Thank you for everything Gator Nation" Alex Anzalone - Florida Football
11/07/16 - Florida coach Jim McElwain ended up making a quarterback change after all. He had no choice this time. The 22nd-ranked Gators will be without quarterback Luke Del Rio "for a while," maybe even the rest of the season, because of a right shoulder injury. "It's bad, man," McElwain said Monday. "When you can't lift your duffel bag up, chances are something's hurt, right?" The banged-up Gators (6-2, 4-2 Southeastern Conference) also will be down three more starters Saturday against South Carolina, and two of those are out for the year. Center Cam Dillard (knee) and linebackers Jarrad Davis (ankle) and Alex Anzalone (arm) won't play against the Gamecocks. Dillard and Anzalone are out for the season. Losing Davis and Anzalone would seemingly create huge holes in Florida's defense, which ranks second in the SEC in yards allowed. David Reese and fellow freshman Kylan Johnson are expected to fill in for them. "Those guys have played," McElwain said. "You know what? They're going to play a bunch this week." - AP Sports
