TAVION GADSON, 2023 DL
The Deep South provides countless high-major prospects across the positional spectrum who seem to pop up out of nowhere with time, but especially along the line of scrimmage. Tavion Gadson from Savannah (Ga.) Jenkins represents the latest of such prospect. While his size is not yet verified, Gadson is believed to reside in the 6-foot-5, 265-pound range and assembled an encouraging junior season along Jenkins' defensive front.
Gadson -- an initial high three-star 88 -- finished 2021 with 60 tackles, six sacks, and three forced fumbles, plus some limited snaps at tight end (one catch for 15 yards). Basketball adds some multi-sport context to Gadson's profile. A big-bodied fluid mover, Gadson -- who averaged 4.3 points and 6.5 rebounds this year -- should present plenty of developmental upside over the next few years.
