What others say:  From Pro Football Weekly - "Gibson is an excellent worker and competitor with fine intangibles. He plays with good technique and has a sound understanding of the game."

Career synopsis:  One of the tougher offensive linemen to come through Corvallis Chris Gibson became the first OSU offensive lineman to earn All-American honors since Fletcher Keister (1992) when he landed on the Associated Press' third team in 2000.

Gibson served as the "brain" on the 2000 offensive line that dominated its opponents en route to an eleven win season.

The Oregonian started out at offensive guard before moving to center in 2000 where he earned first team honors as a junior and second team honors as a senior.

Career statistics:  23 consecutive game starter

Runner up: Kyle DeVan (2004-07) - A second team all-conference pick in 2006 DeVan was a master communicator and a quick learner.  DeVan, a co-team captain in 2007, was a great interview as well. He started 38 consecutive games earning Pac-10 honorable mention honors in 2005 and 2007.

Others worth mentioning: Matt Brock (2001-04)
