Haden in the Wildcat?? The Florida Gators got the number one ranking Friday morning when the USAToday coaches poll came out, which is no surprise to anyone. Just because the Gators are ranked number one and as loaded from top to bottom of the roster as any team in the country doesn’t mean Urban Meyer doesn’t have a surprise or two up his sleeve, however. Following the Friday morning practice, Meyer indicated that he’s got a wildcat package in the works for cornerback Joe Haden, who is expected to have an All-SEC type of season. Haden was a high school All-American quarterback and the state record holder for passing yardage in Maryland but he’s started at corner for 27 straight games since arriving at Florida in 2007. He’s considered one of the two or three best cover corners in the country but his speed and athletic ability has Meyer and the Florida coaching staff looking for ways to utilize all his talents. “He’s down there taking snaps,” Meyer said after practice. “He was a high school quarterback. We thought about playing him some at receiver but there’s a chance [we’ll use him in a wildcat formation] … let people think about that for a little bit.” Meyer said he got the idea of using Haden in some situations at quarterback early in the summer when Haden threw a football at him. “We were out there screwing around at the beginning of summer and he threw me a football and that thing came at me with a tight spiral and hot,” Meyer said. “I said do that again. He did it again and ever since then he’s been talking to me and working with Scot (Loeffler). That’s a possibility.”
