BIOGRAPHY: Four-time all-Conference selection after breaking into the starting lineup as a freshman. Senior totals included 47/5/9 after
57/6/6 the prior year.
POSITIVES: Gerard possesses the size to play at the next level, yet he must be placed in a zone system where the action is in front of
NEGATIVES: Bites on play-action fakes or by opposing receivers moves and gets beaten down the field. Lacks the quick break out of his
plant. Gives a large cushion and too many underneath receptions.
ANALYSIS: Nice sized defensive back best facing the action. Fluid transitioning off the line, stays with opponents anywhere on the field
and effectively keeps the action in front of him. Strong at the point, wraps up tackling, and brings ball carriers down on
initial contact. Good hands for the pick, and works hard to defend the throw.
