The 5-foot-9, 199-pounder was dynamic in one season at the University of Alabama — totaling 926 rushing yards, 444 receiving yards (44 catches), 258 kick return yards, and ten touchdowns in 2022. He assisted the Crimson Tide to 11 wins, including a 45-20 victory over Kansas State in the Allstate Sugar Bowl in New Orleans, La. Gibbs got selected at No. 12 overall in the NFL Draft.

People are excited about Madden 24 as the video game has some good trailers. According to NFL Rookie Watch, Gibbs’ overall and speed ratings have reportedly been unveiled to him. His overall rating will be 77, tying him with Kenneth Walker during the release of the game last year. Walker, a second-round pick by the Seattle Seahawks in 2022, became a draft steal. He recorded 1,050 yards rushing and nine scores. Walker, a Michigan State alumnus, accounted for five 100+ yard rushing performances.

Gibbs’ speed rating will reportedly be 95, which would have made him the fastest running back at the release of last year’s game.

It will be entertaining to watch how he performs as a rookie.
