Overall

Gaskin is a great college player but his lack of top end speed will most likely hurt his draft stock. He has some skills but doesn’t appear to be an every down back at the next level. His pass blocking and lateral quickness are his two most impressive traits. He doesn’t have much room for growth and will most likely be 4th or 5th round pick.
