  UF defensive line coach David Turner raved last week about grad transfer defensive tackles Daquan Newkirk and Antonio Shelton, calling them "vital" additions to the team. Turner said they have meshed well with the rest of the players and served as role models to Florida's younger D-linemen. "I think they bring a sense of maturity and they show the younger guys how to work," Mullen said of Newkirk and Shelton. "Both of those guys have brought an unbelievable attitude within the team and with their work ethic, how they show up, how they prepare...I think those guys will make major impacts for us this year.

"You're bringing in transfers that are going to help, need based to bring them in. Not just bring in anybody. Those were, that was a need position. And the mindset of what we wanted out of those guys was that maturity, that leadership, that attitude and that's what they bring to the table." Mullen stressed that he only brings in transfers who can make an immediate impact and address depth issues, which the Gators had at defensive tackle with the departure of seniors Kyree Campbell, Tedarrell Slaton and Marlon Dunlap. - Gainesville Sun

  Former Auburn defensive tackle Daquan Newkirk will finish his career in his home state while remaining in the SEC. Newkirk, who announced over the weekend his intent to leave Auburn, committed to Florida on Thursday. Newkirk was a senior last season for Auburn and should be immediately eligible as a graduate transfer at Florida. A native of Orlando, Fla., Newkirk spent the last three seasons at Auburn after originally committing as part of the Tigers' 2015 class but instead started his career in the junior college ranks. He joined Auburn in 2018, but his first two years were marred by two separate Achilles injuries. He finished his Auburn career with 39 tackles, including four for a loss and 1.5 sacks. - Birmingham News

  Newkirk came to Auburn as a highly-touted junior college transfer in 2018 only to tear his Achilles tendon in one leg before spring ball that year before tearing his Achilles in the other leg the following spring. Newkirk managed to find the field as a sophomore and a junior but was on the mend during both seasons, leaving him limited with what he could accomplish up front. Now, the senior is determined to prove that he can be a true menace for the Tigers. Newkirk showed he was up for the task Saturday by playing for 53 snaps - his most since coming to Auburn - and putting together a six-tackle, two-tackle for loss performance against the Wildcats. The goal is to keep that style of play up going forward. "It felt amazing honestly because that's something I haven't done since I've been here," Newkirk said about the sack. "I haven't been able to prove myself because I've been injured. It definitely felt good, just being out there, playing ball, doing what I love and making good plays." - Opelika-Auburn News

  Auburn is believed to have one of the best, if not the best, defensive lines in the country this season thanks to the return of Brown, Marlon Davidson and Nick Coe, as well as other key rotational pieces. Yet due to injuries to Daquan Newkirk (Achilles) and Coynis Miller (shoulder), the depth at defensive tackle was thin as the Tigers opened fall camp on Friday.

Newkirk is still sidelined by an Achilles injury - his second in as many offseasons - that cost him the spring, while Miller is still limited while recovering from a shoulder injury. Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said Friday that Newkirk could miss a considerable part of the season as he continues his rehab process, while Miller - who was in an orange non-contact jersey for Day 1 - could return to full strength before the end of fall camp on Aug. 18. - Birmingham News
