Jeff Demps' Decision Expected Monday

Former Florida Gators football player and now Olympic silver medalist Jeff Demps is very, very much on the NFL's radar now that his time at the London Olympic Games is over. Demps will make his decision Monday, per the Tampa Bay Times, and he's drawn considerable interest:

Demps wasn't drafted in April when he elected to focus on qualifying for the Olympics. However, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been interested in Demps for a while now, giving them the edge. As for his sudden appeal, former SEC skill position players with world class speed are now and then considered "attractive" to NFL scouts, who look for qualities such as "football experience" and "speed" fairly often.

Demps was a tailback for the Gators, scoring 23 touchdowns over four seasons and never averaging less than 5.8 yards a carry in each season. Demps won silver in London as part of the U.S. 4x100 relay team.
