Overview

Two-time all-state selection who played quarterback, running back and safety as a Florida prep. Redshirted in 2009. Appeared in 12 games in 2010, when he caught four balls for 49 yards (12.2-yard average) and a touchdown while returning 27 kickoffs for 589 yards (21.8) and 10 punts for 43 yards (4.3). Did not play against Ohio State (shoulder).

Gave way to a two-tight end formation against Air Force. In 2013, was the Wolverines leading receiver for the second straight season and established a school single-season record for receiving yards. Started 12 of 13 games (gave way to two-tight end formation against Ohio State) and produced 89 catches for 1,373 yards (15.4) and nine TDs; also returned six punts for 32 yards (5.3). Set a Big Ten single-game record for receiving yards when he posted 14 catches for 369 yards and two TDs against Indiana. Also had 16 career rushes for 102 yards (6.4) and no touchdowns.

Analysis

Strengths

Fine route savvy to read coverage and uncover in zones. Good hand-eye coordination. Runs hard with good balance and vision after the catch. Outstanding production. Identifies with the game and is very passionate about it. Has return experience.

Weaknesses

Short with a limited catching radius. Lacks top-end speed to separate vertically or run away from a crowd (consistently tracked down from behind). Not a natural hands catcher and will often body the ball. Lacks dynamic run skills for an undersized receiver. Much of his production results from schemed bubble screens and lateral tosses. Underpowered blocker. Will be a 24-year-old rookie.

Draft Projection

Rounds 5-6

Bottom Line

Stocky, strong slot receiver with more of a running back's build, Gallon possesses the hands, zone awareness and toughness to fend for a job in the pros. Lacks the top-end speed desired as a kick returner, but shows enough burst to warrant an opportunity fielding punts.
