I like Gibsons coordination and the way he moves like he sinks his body changing directions and has a burst like a coiled spring. Harralsen has a very slow burst and many runners get by him because of that. I think Gibson would be much better in that area. I am wondering why they don't use Harralsen at MLB. I think they first tried him there but his pass drops hurt him. I read he had improved in that area and Harralsen is good in the area of taking on blockers and tackling. I think he could handle the OL blocking and shore up the MLB spot.
