Media pundits in the National Football League are starting to get excited about a first-round pick from the NFL Draft.
After recording a winning season (9-8) in 2022, the hype surrounding the Detroit Lions is real. Dan Campbell, Lions’ head coach, is putting together a team that could make noise in the NFC. He has a leader at the quarterback position, Jared Goff, and selected a running back that will serve as an all-around playmaker. Jahmyr Gibbs, a former University of Alabama standout, got picked at No. 12 overall in the draft. The 5-foot-9, 199-pounder transferred to the Crimson Tide from Georgia Tech and was impactful.
He totaled 926 rushing yards, 444 receiving yards, and ten touchdowns in 2022. Gibbs led the Tide for rushing yards and receptions (44), helping Alabama to an Allstate Sugar Bowl victory over Kansas State. Peter Schrager, a Senior National NFL writer for Fox Sports, compared Gibbs to NFL superstar playmaker Deebo Samuel of the San Francisco 49ers.
“Multi-phase. Elite. Positionless. Weapon.”

Schrager called Gibbs a “multi-phase. Elite. Positionless. Weapon.”
Alabama does not get to 11 wins without Gibbs, so it is about to be fun to see how Detroit uses him.
