Slot, think of Deebo Samuel, that is the type of player he is

Hmmm interesting. Think I found it:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_Coryell

Norv Turner, a former Washington Redskins and San Diego Chargers head coach, and offensive coordinator of the Dallas Cowboys, San Francisco 49ers and currently the Carolina Panthers, also implements a version of the Coryell style of offense. The Turner strain of Coryell offenses are still very reliant on a good receiving TE. Norv Turner strains sometimes feature an 'F-Back' (formerly known as an 'H-Back' in the 1980s), a hybrid tight end/wide receiver/fullback/running back. An F-Back is a multi-purpose, unpredictable tool for the offense. On any play he may carry the ball, lead block or pass block, play as a wide receiver, or run a tight end route. He is also part decoy, as his unpredictable role forces defenses to keep an eye on him, thereby opening up other opportunities for the offense.

Norvís influence on Scott. Itís gonna be a little bit of a Cooley type that Gibbs used except focus will be less blocking, more vertical up the field

Re: Antonio Gibson

I don't care where he lines up. You put Terry, Sims and Gibson on the field along with Guice or Love and you got guys that can take it to the damn house.

That's not what shows on tape for sure. The guy is a video game breaking tackles and making guys miss all over the place...

It means the writer needed one more bullet point in the weakness column.

Exactly...LBs and box safeties trying to cover 4.39 out the backfield

This is a total H-back pick who they can motion out into formation

Re: Antonio Gibson

At least we know Kyle and RR say true to their BPA board bc if they were need based, TE Trauttman and OT Jones were there.

Based on my 10 mins of research on this young man ... my fail canít miss comparison is a less polished but more explosive Antwaan Randle-El. Watching highlights itís handoffs or catches where no one is within 3 steps of him. I didnít see a lot of out of the backfield stuff. I saw 1 kinda short screen type play near the end zone.

I donít think he will be getting those cushions in the nfl like he did in the AAC. Can he get separation off his route running, can he make a contested catch?

Can he even run nfl routes? Have at least average nfl hands? From what I read ... no. Heís a project with a lot of physical ability upside.

Re: Antonio Gibson

Ron did say he will play him at RB as well so I'm thinking he could be a version of CMAC for us

Re: Antonio Gibson

My only wonder is if this is one of those cases where the 40 yard numbers don't line up with the tape. His highlights seems like he runs slower than a 4.4. Time will tell, but if we use him right and he makes plays I don't care where they slot him at.

Maybe it was just the ESPN clip they put together, it was mostly shots of him breaking tackles, making cuts and hitting the hole hard. Gave me the impression he plays heavier than 220.

Re: Antonio Gibson

Good friend of mine was on the Memphis staff, he can't say better things about this kid. Apparently he's a workout warrior and a true team player.. He will do whatever it takes to help the team.. That's the kind of attitude this new regime brings!! HTTR

Here is a highlight tape, I see him breaking tackles but I also see him running away from people as well.

Re: Antonio Gibson

This was a luxury pick. But BPA can look like like luxury, because it doesn't give a shit about the current depth chart. He is another weapon.

The WR and RB numbers are gonna be interesting. We can't fit all of these guys onto the roster.

Predictions:

RB: AP, Guice, McKissic
WR: McLaurin, Gandy-Golden, Sims Jr., Harmon, Latimer
Combo: Gibson

Doesn't leave any room for Barber who we just signed or Love. I mean if Love isn't ready for training camp, I'll just assume he's never playing for us. I don't see anyone that is either someone we can trade or someone that holds much trade value.
