—Has the athleticism and physicality to compete in the NFL immediately.
—Starting experience at guard and tackle.
—Consistent starter who is an obvious leader.
—Fires off the ball well and looks for work inside in pass protection.
—Not a particularly coordinated player and will have balance issues.
—Adequate change-of-direction skills that show up as the pocket collapses.
—Odd punch timing that looks like it takes time for his brain to tell his hands to fire.
—Heavy-looking mover despite an athletic frame (6'5", 311 lbs).
—Once he engages, he leans instead of engaging his hips and driving through defenders.
Colby Gossett understands the offensive line well and has experience at both guard and tackle. He's shown all of the requisite skills to be a developmental player worth at least a practice squad role as a rookie. His transition will be largely dependent on his ability to become a more coordinated open-field mover.
