Scouting Report: Strengths
- In the run game, Gibson shows good burst off the line of scrimmage, with the ability to win at the point of attack. Gibson has enough speed and athleticism to move to the second level and land blocks.
- Shows good awareness after the snap, reacting and positioning himself against twists and stunts
- Fires off the line of scrimmage with good initial power at the point of attack. Gibson consistently holds his own against mammoth defensive tackles, and his hand strength allows him to grip and move opponents in the run game.
- Fundamentally sound and understands blocking angles, using body positioning to his advantage. Disciplined awareness and good intelligence.
- Has the strong leg drive to create movement at the line of scrimmage, consistently putting defenders on the ground.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Gibson seems too focused on winning with his hands, too often stopping his feet. Gibson also plays with poor balance in the run game, lunging into contact rather than sinking his hips and delivering a block.
- Pass protection is a potential issue; while Gibson has a good initial punch and is fairly good with his hands, he’s heavy-footed and tends to stop his feet when he makes contact. He’ll struggle to mirror against quickness.
- Needs to prove his worth in a straight-ahead running game.
- More of a waist bender with subpar feet, and he too often ends up reaching and lunging when going against quickness.
