Report Prepared By John Harris
Gayle played his entire career at Virginia Tech as a 4-3 DE. He's a relentless, effort player who plays the game the right way. He never quits on a play, is nasty and physical. There are others in this class that are more athletic, yet not as productive.
The former Hokie has such a great opportunity in Mobile to prove that he has that athleticism to stand up and play as a 3-4 OLB. Hokie defensive ends have come into the NFL all having played in the Hokies traditional even front scheme. Not many have made the transition easily, if at all, to the 3-4 OLB spot. Gayle should be given that opportunity in Mobile and he has to make the most of it to show he has the slightest bit of scheme versatility.
