Near Elite Starter
Gibbs provides the Crimson Tide with a different type of back than they have trotted out in recent history. At 5-11 200lbs, Gibbs is not a player the Tide should depend on to bang out tough yards between the tackles. If Gibbs is deployed correctly, he is a versatile chess piece with big-play ability. He can make defenders miss with very little daylight and is explosive off the block. Once he enters the second level of the defense, good luck.
PLAYSTYLE & SCHEME FIT
Gibbs would be an excellent fit for an offense that emphasizes zone blocking and outside-zone runs. His patience and vision would allow him to read blocks and find running lanes, while his burst and acceleration would make him a dangerous runner on outside runs. He would also be a great fit for an offense that utilizes running backs in the passing game.
