Can Antonio Gibson be Round 5 version of Laviska Shenault

Recommended Posts

Just a really interesting player and I think teams that are looking for a guy who can be a bit of a gadget option, he could be an option that’s available later on in the draft

He’s so underrated, I can’t believe he’s going to go round 5. I would be very happy if we drafted him.

Gibson is what Shenault thinks he is. 

 

A talented multi position player who can play WR and RB and has good speed.  

 

If he tested as an RB he would have had the 2nd best SPARQ score behind only Taylor

 

I'll continue to say that Shenault is trash like I've been saying for months

I'm not opposed to Gibson in the latter portion of the draft, but this is a guy who touched the ball a total of 77 times on plays from scrimmage in 2 years at Memphis.  I haven't read that an injury was responsible for the lack of touches, so you really have to ask - if he is such a dynamic weapon, why didn't his coaches at Memphis call more plays to get the ball into his hands?  

I am not saying that there might not be a good answer to that question, but this seems like a case where the hype (at least on this board) based on his size/speed far exceeds what he has shown in college.
