Gibson was very productive at West Virginia, appearing in 38 career games, where he had 84 receptions, for 1898 receiving yards, and 17 receiving touchdowns. He has good speed, he is a solid pass catcher, is usually sure handed, is a good blocking receiver, and a good route runner. He is also a offensive play maker, a good deep threat, he is a dynamic return man, and a special teams standout. He also breaks tackle with ease, and makes defenders with ease. The only issue I see is he is undersized a bit. With that said, I view Gibson as a late day 2 pick, to an early day 3 pick.
