Bio: 
Two-year starter who tied for the team lead with three forced fumbles and made 65 tackles (3.5 for loss) with one interception and five pass breakups in 2017. Recorded 68 tackles (six for loss), one forced fumble and four PBUs as a sophomore. Redshirted the 2015 season after suffering a season-ending foot injury in training camp.
Pos: 
Aggressive corner with next-level size. Physical in all aspects of the game, plays with suddenness and has an explosive burst to the action. Shows quickness, easily changes direction and stays on the receiver’s hip out of breaks. Fast both laterally and in a straight line, effectively tracks the pass in the air and works to defend the throw. Mixes it up with opponents throughout the action, fires up the field and gives effort against the run.
Neg: 
Lacks a second gear and downfield speed. Does not play under control at all times. Struggles in battles when he should not.
Analysis: 
Gaulden offers next-level size and has flashed ball skills but must complete his game and learn to play like a mature individual to have a career at the next level.
