Bio: 
Three-year starter who was named Honorable Mention All-ACC in 2017. Started 38 of his final 39 career games.
Pos: 
Underrated center prospect who does the little things well. Explosive at the point, fires off the snap and blocks with leverage. Stays square, keeps his feet moving and effectively places his hands into defenders. Sinks his butt at the line of scrimmage and blocks with terrific knee bend. Quick if asked to pull across the line of scrimmage. Effective with shotgun snaps.
Neg: 
Lacks bulk, struggles with one-on-one blocking assignments and cannot finish opponents. Occasionally gets mauled in the middle.
Analysis: 
Gallo was a terrific center at the college level and is a fundamentally sound blocker who understands the position. He’s a developmental prospect who could back up at the next level if he improves his playing strength.
