Pos: 
Tall, situational pass rusher who can come out of a three-point stance or stand over tackle. Fluid when asked to twist or stunt, breaks down well and gets a lot of force going up the field. Displays solid change of direction and works hard. Strong open-field tackler, resilient and works his hands throughout the play. Gives effort and gets up off the ground to make the tackle.
Neg: 
Displays marginal quickness and does not play to his 40 time. Blocked rather easily at the point of attack. Marginally effective in pursuit. Fractured his ankle in October.
Analysis: 
Gustin looks the part and occasionally plays to it but is more of a situational prospect for the next level. He's an average pass rusher who gives effort against the run and is a long way from being a three-down defender.
