BIO: Led the team as a senior posting 54/665/11 catching the ball. Missed the entire '03 season with a torn ACL. Junior totals included 42/466/8.
POSITIVES: Nice sized pass catcher with the ability to be used as a possession receiver. Quick releasing off the line, immediately gets to top speed and sells routes. Comes back to the ball and extends his hands, offering the quarterback a nice target. Displays good eye/hand coordination. Strong running after the reception and breaks tackles to pick up positive yardage.
NEGATIVES: Does not time receptions well. Not a sharp route runner. Struggles getting off jams and battling to make the reception more than he should.Productive the past two seasons on the field, Gideon possesses marginal size/speed numbers for the next level. Could be used as a fifth receiver and brought onto the field during third-down situations.
