Positive: Solid college linebacker who lacks the speed for the next level. Relatively effective in space, shows cover skills in the short field, and has the ability to get depth on drops. Collapses down the line making plays against the run. Breaks down well, uses his hands to protect himself, and quickly changes direction.
Negative: Marginal quickness in his game. Lacks the speed to pursue from the back side. Struggles disengaging from blocks. Marginally productive on the college level.
Analysis: Gamble has shown flashes of ability throughout his entire career but has never put together a complete game. He's a better athlete than given credit for and could make a two deep at outside linebacker if he plays well on special teams this summer."
Negatives: Marginal production, has never eclipsed 60 tackles or a single sack in any season... Suffered a broken leg in 2008 that ended his season early, durability a slight concern... Needs to do a better job of positioning body against blockers, will get out of position to make tackles of chip and cut blocks at the second level... Not a unique athlete, is not overwhelming in any particular aspect of the game... Position a real question mark at this point, will need to make adjustments to play OLB in the NFL, does not have a ton of experience as a pass rusher or pass defender on third down."
