Reserve right tackle, social media dynamo.

Cody Gibson
Junior Offensive Tackle
6'7", 286 lbs.
Tallahassee, FL

Recruitment:
3 stars, 64th overall offensive tackle in 2010 class
Other offers: Illinois, East Carolina, Indiana, Iowa State, Maryland

College Career:
After medically redshirting in 2010, Cody's been visible on the offensive line in spells, appearing in seven games and starting four in 2011. He made a touchdown-saving tackle against Tennessee after a pass was intercepted. If I'm not mistaken, DJ Swearinger would intercept Justin Worley on the ensuing drive, all the more validating Cody's efforts. Last year, Gibson saw action in nine games and started two. He missed most of the spring with a torn meniscus, which was surgically repaired and should have him back during the summer. Cody stilled earned an Outstanding Weight Room award.

2012 Stats:
Nine games played, four started.

2013 Outlook:
The spring depth chart lists Gibson as the backup to Brandon Shell at the right tackle position. As long as Gibson's knee heals without issue, there's no reason to believe he won't see the field regularly in 2013. He's an offensive lineman which means I don't have a hell of a lot to say here, so let's just move right on to the trivia section.

Trivia:
Has 2 tickets for paradise.

Social media scouting report:
Gibson (@FLAswag78) is a must-follow. His tweets are plenty entertaining, but it's his Vine feed where you'll strike gold. Here he is sneaking into AJ Cann's house:

Offering a minimalist narration to his aforementioned tackle:

Admonishing digiRonald Patrick for getting hurtled in NCAA 2013:

And, my personal favorite, Gibson ridiculing Landon "Linkin" Ard's vehicle.

Possible Todd Ellis play-by-play call:
"Goal line set, Gamecocks knocking on the door. Ball snapped, Mike Davis takes the handoff, hit at the line, and the ball is knocked loose! But, oh my! It bounces right into the waiting arms of Cody Gibson, who falls across the goal line! Folks, it might have looked like special effects but the only 'CGI' in play here was 'Cody Gibson's Instincts'!"*

* Assuming Todd Ellis knows what CGI is.**
** He doesn't.
