8) Percy Harvin

Harvin was one of the most electrifying players in College Football history. He was the first Gator to ever rush for 100 yards and have 100 yards receiving in the same game. Harvin is one of only two wide receivers in Division I-A football since 1996 to have over 1,500 rushing and 1,500 receiving yards and is the only wide receiver to accomplish those numbers in just three seasons dating back to 1996.

7) Emmitt Smith

Smith played three years for the Florida Gators, where he set numerous school rushing records. After being named a unanimous All-American in 1989, Smith chose to forgo his senior year of eligibility and play professionally. If he would have stayed he would probably be in the top 3 on this list.
