GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida has three more players turning pro.

Coach Jim McElwain said Monday running back Kelvin Taylor, receiver Demarcus Robinson and defensive end Alex McCalister have decided to forgo their senior seasons and enter the NFL draft. They join cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III, who declared his intentions after the Southeastern Conference champion game earlier this month.

Taylor, Robinson and Hargreaves will stick around for the bowl game. The No. 19 Gators (10-3) play No. 17 Michigan (9-3) in the Citrus Bowl on New Year’s Day.

McCalister is dealing with a foot injury and won’t play.

Taylor ran for 985 yards and 13 touchdowns this season. Robinson caught 47 passes for 505 yards and two scores. McCalister had 18 1/2 tackles for loss, including 6 1/2 sacks, in nine games.
