One thing the Eagles desperately needed in this draft was speed and they’re getting that in Gibson.
In three seasons at West Virginia, Gibson caught 84 balls for 1,898 yards and 17 touchdowns. He also averaged an incredible 22.6 yards per reception for the Mountaineers. His deep speed is so dangerous he has been compared to the likes of former Eagles wideout DeSean Jackson.
Gibson probably won’t be putting up any 1,000-yard seasons for the Eagles, but it’s not unreasonable to expect some big plays from the speedy wideout fairly regularly.
