Scouting Report: Fred Gibson

Scouting Report: Fred Gibson

Full Name:  Fred Gibson  School:  Georgia

Ht:   6-4  Wt:  195 40:  4.48

The Good: Athletically gifted wide out who displays flashes of being both a game controlling and game breaking receiver.  Beats opponents off the line, does a solid job running routes and quick footed into breaks.  Gets separation from opponents, displays timing as well as the ability to adjust then grab the errant throw.  Comes back to the ball displaying good eye/hand coordination, extends and shows soft hands with the ability to pluck the ball from the air.  

The Bad: Inconsistent in almost every aspect.  Not always on the same page as his quarterback.  Lets the ball get inside him and drops a lot of the easy throws.  Lazily gets into routes.  Has had problems with injuries in the past.

The Skinny: At the top of his game Gibson is a receiver who can make the big catch during the critical moments of a contest.  He flashes the skills to break games wide open yet his career has been marred with inconsistency.  Physically, Gibson grades out high but his attitude and pre-draft interviews will dictate whether or not a franchise parts with a top 75-selection for his services in April.
