Gipson is a good cover safety after spending so much time at corner throughout his career. He excels in his backpedal, turning his hips and covering. Corner play has definitely helped him in passing situations, and although he is a developing tackler at safety, he is effective. He is fast and athletic for the safety position.
Gipson is still developing at safety and hasn't had much high-level experience there. He is a corner first who actually projects to safety because of his size, but he can struggle lining up at times at safety and bringing the hat in run support. He needs time to develop at the position and could be better served as a nickel corner early on.67.2
