BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter at defensive end who totaled 34/7/3.5 as a senior after 49 /8/7 the prior year.

POSITIVES: Undersized college defensive end that projects to outside linebacker at the next level. Quickly gets off the snap, moves well laterally and rarely off his feet. Can bend off the edge, shows speed in every direction and effectively pursues the action from the backside. Strong for his size, shows an array of moves working to get off blocks and plays with excellent pad level. Displays a good head for the ball.

NEGATIVES: Slow shedding blocks and handled point of attack. Disappointed scouts as a senior and did not improve his game.

ANALYSIS: Gatewood is an athletic prospect best making plays up the field. He is best suited as a rush linebacker who stands up over tackle in a 3-4 alignment.

PROJECTION: Late Sixth Round
