Pos: 
Instinctive safety with poor size and speed numbers. Displays good range, quickly gets out laterally and makes plays to the flanks. Stays with assignments, plays within the system and effectively reads the action. Fires up the field to defend the run and drives his shoulders through ball carriers. Explosive hitter. Displays skill in coverage.
Neg: 
Not forceful on the blitz, has a linear build and gets easily blocked from the action or knocked from his angle of attack. Really did not capitalize on what was a terrific junior season.
Analysis: 
Gibson is a heady safety with a good feel for the position but lacks the size and speed for the next level. He could be effective in a zone system and should add value on special teams.
