Thaddeus Gibson

DE – Ohio State
Junior
6’2″ 240 lbs



ESPN is reporting that Ohio State defensive end Thaddeus Gibson is declaring for the NFL Draft. Gibson has played both outside linebacker and most recently, defensive end for the Buckeyes. His size is better suited for a 3-4 OLB in the NFL or possibly a 4-3 OLB. Given his recent play as a pass rusher, expect Gibson to be worked out as a 3-4 OLB in drills.
