Biography: Three year starter that totaled 31/395/2 as a senior after 60/935/9 the prior year. Posted career numbers of 64/1082/9 as a sophomore.
Positives: Reliable pass catcher with marginal size/speed numbers for the next level. Displays a lot of quickness in his game, immediately gets off the line into routes and nicely adjusts to the errant throw. Reaches back to grab the ball, gets down to scoop up low passes and displays a nice sense of timing. Possesses good eye/hand coordination, looks the ball into his hands and effectively uses his frame to shield away opponents. Nicely makes the reception in stride or comes back to the quarterback to make himself an available target.
Negatives: One speed receiver who lacks the deep burst and cannot run to the long throw. May struggle in battles at the next level.
Analysis: Gent has been productive throughout his college career and can make an NFL roster as a fifth receiver if he displays special teams skill on coverage units this summer.
