Strengths

Gerald has excellent size, strength and speed for his position. He can play a pure centerfield position for you, cover sideline to sideline and get you the picks. He is smart and will play mind games with the opposing QB. Gerald shows leadership qualities and looks on film to be a good teammate who interacts well with his coaches on the sidelines. This kid is going to be a damn good player at the next level.

 

Needs to Improve

He is not a big hitter, which takes away from everyone noticing him. However, he is a solid tackler. He also has some problems tackling in open space; he is often fooled, which results in being off balance and arm tackling too much. Someone needs to sit him down and show him the techniques of tackling in open space. Itís all in the angles.

 

Talent Board Round  3
This kid is going to be a good player at the next level. He needs some work on his tackling, but is not afraid to take someone on and thatís the main issue. He is like a QB on the field and helps the DBís get into position. This kid would have shown up better if the overall team was better and the coaching in general was better. Every year they have players who come out of this program and become better NFL players than they were college players. At some point, you would think that someone would catch on to this fact and change the coaching staff. I guess in college you have a few decent years and all of a sudden you are thought of as the god of coaching and signed to a long-term contract. I guess there are some things I will never understand.
