2023 Guide: What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about JAHMYR GIBBS:
Alabama | H: 5110 W: 200 40: 4.36 A: 3012 H: 0914 W: 7418
Junior entry, two-year starter, Dalton, GA. Spent two seasons at Georgia Tech where he earned first team All-ACC and second team All-America honors in 2021 before moving on to Alabama, where he earned second team All-SEC last fall. Gibbs chose to take a step up in competition, both in-house and with his opponents. He responded with a career year, leading the Crimson Tide with 132.3 all-purpose yards per game, second in the conference. He can wear multiple hats on offense and special teams, as the only objective here is to simply get the ball in his hands. Has fluid movement patterns below the waist in all directions. Looks like he is on ice skates with how easily he can change direction and explode. Has homerun speed, receiver-caliber hands, and a good feel for where the creases will appear. This is an ideal skill set for today’s pro running back. Light feet that glide with no restrictions both laterally and vertically. High stepper that gets over and through traffic. Excellent tempo as he approaches defenders. Understands how to set up his blockers and gain angle advantages. Elite ball skills and routes in the passing game. Creates separation through sharp cuts and awareness. Carries a lot of unknown as a blocker. Questionable desire and toughness in traffic with multiple defenders bearing down on him. Does not always push the pile forward. Needs to get the sure yards more often. Had fumble issues early in his career. Will be an immediate asset to any passing game and has shown the elite movement traits both in crowded areas and in the open field to create explosive plays weekly.
