 Willie Gaston Grade: 2.72
 Position: CB
 Class: Sr
 School: Houston
 Conference: Conference USA
 Ht., Wt.: 5-9.5, 184
 40 Time: 4.51

BIO: Full-time starter the past two seasons. Totaled 46/1/11 as a senior after junior numbers of 62/3/4.

POSITIVES: Under-sized cover corner who offers ability in a zone system. Reads the action, quickly gets his head back around and locates the pass in the air. Nicely times his defenses. Effective when backed off the line of scrimmage.

NEGATIVES: Not a technique tackler, and ball handlers pick up yardage off initial contact. Tight in his backpedal. Does not display great instincts.

ANALYSIS: A potential dime back, Gaston is a tough, self-motivated prospect with special-teams ability.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
