Saccopoo Memorial Draft Forum>Antonio ****ing Gibson

Okay, I'll admit, this is one of my draft crushes. I know there is a huge wave of Damien Williams fans out there, and I definitely agree it would be a waste of an early pick to go RB, but Antonio Gibson is a maniacal monster that is being mocked in the 3-4 round range. Have you guys watched any film on this beautiful specimen? It's like watching a TE play RB.

He's raw. As hell. As in 34 career rushes. CAREER. 77 Total Touches. However, he has 14 touchdowns on those 77 touches. That's good, right? He's listed as both a WR and RB. 6'2", 221lbs and runs a sub 4.40. Freak.

Andy would have so much fun figuring out ways to get this guy involved and it would be amazing to watch him wear down defenses with a body as fresh as a newborn baby.

ehhh. I don't know. If he's a pissy little shithead I'd rather not mess with it.


True, that's just one report.

The value with Antonio Gibson was in getting him at a bargain draft pick special. Now people are talking about a 2nd round. There will be a very good running backs or receivers available then. Players that have shown they could at least do it in college.

Gibson has a lot of potential but he has gone through his college days and really, junior college two years then 2018 5 games, 6 catches 99 yards 2 TD. 2019 14 games, 38 catches 735 yards, 33 rushes, 369 yards, 4 TDs. Also in 2019 he was not a consistent performer for Memphis. He had some great games followed by games with not much.

If Chiefs could get him in the 4th or 5th, that would be OK, but not in favor of where it looks like he is going in the draft.

He's NOT going to go in the 2nd. He's just not.

this is that thing where all of the sudden everybody's rising on draft boards, but the reality is, there's still only so many slots per round. You can't have 45 first rounders and 90 second rounders and 100 third rounders.

Daniel Jeremiah had a great tweet last week about the lack of "groupthink" going on because scouts from different teams aren't co-mingling as much...

There might be 1 GM that thinks he's amazing and snaps him up in the 2nd. Or not.

He's versatile as heck and looks really elusive. I'd love him.

Not necessarily. Tyreek was a RB in college. This kid screams WR far more than RB in the NFL. I'd still draft him.
