BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter who broke in with the first team as a freshman. All-Conference selection as a senior.

POSITIVES: Gerberry has been a terrific college center who plays bigger than his listed size. The ability to block in motion and will give him an opportunity to back up for a zone blocking scheme. Gerberry makes up for his marginal physical with toughness and a good head for the position.

NEGATIVES: Lacks top strength at the point of attack, and is not a dominant drive blocker who opens up the middle of the field.

ANALYSIS: Hard-working and durable college center with marginal size and athleticism. Bends his knees, sets with a wide base, and blocks with solid fundamentals. Terrific position blocker who stays square and walls defenders from the action. Plays heads-up football, helps out teammates and quarterbacks the offensive line. Quickly gets his hands into defenders and explosive at the point of attack. Shows the ability to get out front and creates space for ball carriers blocking in motion. Effective with shotgun snap.
