While Michigan knows who its quarterback will most likely be, 6-foot-6, 243-pound junior Wilton Speight, many experts expect more Wolverines to be selected in the NFL Draft than products of any other team, leaving them with plenty of question marks.

The Gators finished the 2016 season ranked 14th while Michigan was 10th. The last time Florida and Michigan played each other was the 2016 Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl, a 41-7 victory for the Wolverines.
