Overview

Gresham will likely go later in the draft than he would have last year due to a season-ending knee injury in practice prior to the first game of the 2009 season. He had surgery to repair torn cartilage in his right knee in October. He lacks premier top end speed but can challenge secondaries down the middle thanks to his stride length. Gresham is more of a finesse blocker in line but can and will smother opponents on the second level as well as down field. There are times where it looks like he has lapses of concentration from his route running to missing blocks, but he is smart and can pick things up.

Analysis

Strengths

Rare blend of size, speed and athleticism. Vertical threat that consistently makes big plays and has a knack for getting into the end zone. Big target with large catching radius and good hands that secure balls in traffic. Possesses the body control to adjust to off target throws. Good downfield blocker.

Weaknesses

More of a long-strider than a burner. Erratic blocker with narrow base. Needs to work on route running. Loses focus at times. Missed the entire 2009 season with a knee injury.
