List of Florida Gators football players in the NFL

List of Florida Gators football players in the NFL

This List of Florida Gators football players includes notable former college football players for the Florida Gators football team that represents the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, and who have played professionally in the National Football League (NFL) during its regular season. This list includes such former Gators players as Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Tim Tebow, Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive end Jack Youngblood, and Super Bowl Most Valuable Player and Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith. (This list does not include notable former Gators football players who never played in a regular season NFL game; reference should be made to the Florida Gators football main article for lists of other notable players who did not play in the NFL.)

Former Florida Gators are listed alphabetically within each NFL team's group of current and former players. NFL teams are listed alphabetically within each of the NFL's two conferences, the American Football Conference and the National Football Conference. Those players who are listed under a particular team played for that team in one or more regular season games during the years indicated.

Since former Gators lineman Cy Williams played in ten regular season NFL games in 1929, over 270 former Gators football players have played in one or more regular season games for forty different NFL teams.[1] On the opening day of the 2014 season, thirty-five former Gators appeared on the active rosters of NFL teams.
