Florida defensive end Jachai Polite has declared for the NFL Draft after a breakout junior season of football.

The 6’2 242 lb, Daytona Beach native finished 2018 with 45 tackles (27 solo) and 19.5 tackles for loss. Polite also added a team-high 11 sacks.

Polite is expected to be a first round pick and is among the top edge rushers in this year’s draft.

Polite is the third draft eligible underclassman to declare. CB Chauncey Gardner-Johnson announced his intentions shortly after Florida defeated FSU in the regular season finale. Shortly after the Peach Bowl victory over Michigan, junior OT Jawaan Taylor declared as well.
