Does anybody know anything about Gibson?


I looked at him vs Southern & Navy or Temple, can't remember. Well built & low, good athlete. But he runs too upright, big with a large surface area for defenders to hit. The tackles he shrugs off at a weaker level of competition won't be nearly as easy in the NFL. Follows Darrell Henderson out of that Memphis read/option program that doesn't lend itself with respect to a player's transition, accordingly. Was on the field enough, but never became the focal point of the running game or the passing game, a lot of manufactured touches. As a rec'r, plays where he just runs straight down the field & the DB is late to get on his horse & here comes the football, too many of those. But he tracks well, can elevate & I saw him make several contested catches & adjust well to poorly placed balls. 

Gibson is a ball-carrier, but it's probably unfair to question how he was utilized. Fortunate perhaps to be in a program at all. Did well for himself at the combine & it paid off. Just as it says in his draft profile, despite the "versatility" he seemingly affords an OC, he's extremely raw. That said, the 3rd round seems high for a developmental/ST player. Given where he landed, I'm going to let others draft him.

If Mack, Ingram & Johnson are healthy they are safe to be there teams lead back. Draft in confidence. 

Nothing is wrong with Chicago drafting Cole Kmet. Cole will be the starter. Graham is washed, Burton is gone Sheheen doesn’t have it. The other TEs blah . 

Belichick is a genius 

Eagles & Packers WTF are you doing?

Trautman to Saints. Im happy about that spot.

I thought the Pats might have taken Trautman but instead they traded 2 4ths and a 6th for Dalton Keene 🤨.  I hope they are right about him.

I wanted him on the Patriots.. You think he can last till the 5th round 159 ?

Caserio said they want another QB, and Eason would make sense to me. However, Belichick's draft trades rarely make sense to me.

(Given that BB has a fist full of rings and I have... let me count... 0... I guess BB knows better. Ah well.)

I'm less confident in all three than I was 24 hours ago.

The Ravens run quite a bit, and it is conceivable that Dobbins takes the "Gus Johnson role."  But Ingram's 30.

The Colts looked crowded with Mack and Hynes (given Phillip's crackdown tendencies) now?  I'm not touching any of those backs until round 6 at the earliest.  Taylor is talented enough in his own right to be a lead back.

Drafting Swift makes me have some questions about Johnson's health.  And we all know the Lions throw a lot anyway.

All three could help protect their teams against contract negotiations with the vet backs next year, or they could carve out significant roles this year because they are all talented.

For fantasy purposes, it's frustrating that none of these guys went to the Bucs or Dolphins and creates a lot more questions than if they had.
