Grant Gibson C NC State Draft Profile

Strengths
  • Willing to attack and punches multiple times to finish the play. Quick to pick up edge blitz and shows no panic, easily adjusting angles and resetting his feet. Can recover and reset his anchor. Rarely late off the snap.
  • Above-average football smarts and general intelligence. Plays with a nasty streak. Solid character and work ethic.
  • Has the agility, technique, and size to contribute early in his professional career. Quick, active hands to latch on to defenders.
  • Fundamentally sound and understands blocking angles, using body positioning to his advantage. Disciplined awareness and good intelligence.
  • Solid positional run blocker who flashes the nasty demeanor and killer instinct scouts covet.
Weaknesses
  • Loses leverage battles and plays with high pad level. Can be late off the snap.
  • Stronger pass rushers can get under his pads and steer him aside.
  • Light on his feet for a guard but doesn't possess the range or size to remain outside against NFL pass rushers.
  • Needs to prove his worth in a straight-ahead running game.
  • Finesse blocker with average arm length who doesn't use his hands well to win at the point of attack.
