Ht: 6-1 Wt: 234 40: 4.83 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his junior campaign. Senior totals were 78/7.5/4 after 92/12.5/2 the prior year. All-Academic selection in the past.
Pos: High-motor defender who elevated his game the past two years. Diagnoses the action, fast to the flanks or collapses from the outside defending the run. Disciplined in coverage, fast off the edge and displays solid range. Stands out in pursuit.
Neg: Not strong and slow shedding blocks. Does not possess sustained speed.
Analysis: A serviceable linebacker, Gaither is a backup on the weak side. Shows potential on special teams.
