Biography: "Two-year starter who finished with 84/8.5/1, as well as intercepting two passes and breaking up five more as a senior. Junior totals included 80/3.5/3."
Positives: "Quick, athletic linebacker who makes plays sideline to sideline. Gets depth on pass drops, is effective in space, and displays terrific ball skills. Fast out to the flanks, quickly closes to the action, and shows ability in pursuit. Plays with explosiveness. Fluid moving in all directions of the field. Breaks down well, quickly changes direction, and can immediately alter his angle of attack."
Negatives: Easily taken from the action by tight ends. Needs to run around blocks rather than meeting them head-on at times.
Analysis: Gachkar is one of the most underrated linebacker prospects in the draft. He has all the skills to be a weak side defender at the next level and possesses the tools to produce on special teams.
