Bio: 
Four-year starter at right guard who earned First Team All-Sun Belt honors in 2016 and 2017. Started the final seven games of his redshirt freshman campaign after missing the first four games with a lower-body injury.
Pos: 
Terrific zone-blocking lineman with nice upside. Fires off the snap into blocks and plays with a nasty attitude and sound fundamentals. Bends his knees, stays square and keeps opponents in front of him. Explosive at the point and keeps his feet and hands active. Solid position blocker. Turns opponents from the line as a run blocker, anchors in pass protection and quickly gets to the second level and redirects to linebackers.
Neg: 
Lacks natural power and struggles to finish blocks. Must improve his overall strength at the point.
Analysis: 
Gossett has displayed significant progress the past two seasons and showed next-level ability during Senior Bowl practices. He comes with solid size, growth potential and athleticism and could develop into a starter after a year or two in an NFL weight-training program.
