Bio: 
Two-year starter named Honorable Mention All-ACC in 2016 after posting 54 tackles (10.5 for loss) with 7.5 sacks and three forced fumbles. Missed two games with a head injury in 2015, posting 38 tackles (2.5 for loss) and one sack. Started four games as a sophomore and made 25 tackles (1.5 for loss).
Pos: 
Explosive interior college tackle with poor measurables. Rarely off his feet, plays with consistent leverage and works his hands throughout the action. Fires off the snap and attracts attention in the middle of the line yet finds ways to split blocks and make plays behind the line of scrimmage. Solid pass rusher who also gives effort defending the run.
Neg: 
Easily controlled at the point by a single opponent. Run over by defenders on occasion. Lacks great edge speed.
Analysis: 
Gamble elevated his game in all areas last year and turned in a career campaign. He needs to improve his strength at the point of attack but comes with growth potential and is worth consideration on the practice squad.
