But the players with the best chance to achieve them are not discussing the fame and fortune possibly in their future.
The silence has been a big change for previous seasons in Gainesville, said Florida fifth-year senior Omar Hunter.
"When I was a young guy I used to hear it all the time," Hunter recalled on Wednesday. "'Oh man, I'm leaving. I don't want to be here anymore. I'm going to get money.'
"This year, not one bit."
Several Gators' juniors - defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd, safety Matt Elam, tight end Jordan Reed, defensive lineman Dominique Easley and linebacker Jelani Jenkins - could declare early entry for the NFL draft.
But those decisions are on hold until after the Jan. 2 Sugar Bowl, according to coach Will Muschamp.
"We'll address that at the appropriate time, which is after the bowl game," Muschamp said Monday.
Still, these annoucements usually do not go according to plan. News usually leaks out, but Muschamp has done his best to keep NFL chatter in house.
"When we do talk about it, we talk about it as a team," Hunter said. "(Muschamp) has team meetings and he gives us the good, the bad, the negatives on leaving early or coming back, the success in the NFL leaving early.
"But individually we don't talk about that stuff."
Floyd, a possible first-round draft pick, and Elam, a first-team All-America, are likely candidates to leave early and go during the draft's first 50 picks.
Reed, a former quarterback, could use seasoning, but his size (6-3, 243) and speed make him an intriguing prospect in a tight end-oriented league. Reed led Florida with 44 catches, including a team-high 12 of of 20 yards or longer.
Easley came on late in the season and seems to be close to 100 percent after he suffered an ACL tear Nov. 26, 2011, against Florida State. Injuries could lead Jenkins to return as a redshirt senior; he broke his thumb, injured his hamstring and broke his right foot in 2012. He recently had successful surgery on his foot and will miss the bowl game.
Before they joined Muschamp's staff in 2011, defensive coordinator Dan Quinn coached defensive linemen in the NFL for 10 seasons and Gators defensive line coach Bryant Young was a four-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle.
Florida players with NFL aspirations have a resource not all college teams do.
"I know they care about us and won't let us made a bad decision," Hunter said. "Ultimately the decision is ours', but those guys will give you the best advice they can."
