College Salary Cap

Shelton Gibson (W / West Virginia)

Shelton Gibson announced he will declare for the 2017 NFL Draft.

Impact

Gibson, listed at 6-foot, 198 pounds, leaves West Virginia after establishing himself as one of the nation's most feared big-play threats over the last two years. His 80 receptions over that span is a low figure, but his efficiency was excellent, totaling 1,828 yards and 17 touchdowns on just 155 targets. Despite the high per-catch yardage average of 22.85, Gibson didn't just make his living downfield – he had to create plenty of yardage after the catch while dealing with limited quarterback play. He appears quite athletic on tape and could push surprisingly high in the receiver rankings if he tests well at the Combine. With both Gibson and Daikiel Shorts gone, West Virginia will need more from Ka'Raun White, Jovon Durante and Gary Jennings in 2017.
