Overview

A former JUCO All-American at Solano College, Gibson emerged as Cal's starting left tackle midway through the 2006 season and was an Honorable Mention conference honoree there in only a season and a half of work. While Gibson lacks the balance and foot quickness to remain outside in the NFL, his toughness and physical run blocking make him an ideal fit inside at guard.
