While I don't have any interest in a CB in round 1 I'd take Gardner as a BPA play, would take someone like Ojabo over him though for sure.
He is on the smallish side. He uses leverage extremely well and he plays through the whistle. He is also ultra mobile to get to the second level and make the blocks a lot of centers can't. But yeah I get it, most want a 320 pound center and Linderbaum will never be that. Another year in college wasn't going to change that. I'm sure he will get up to 300 for the combine and such but the guy is a 290 pound center. Of course Humphrey was only 302 pounds when he was drafted so we aren't talking about massive size differences.I see some draftniks punching holes in him, saying he is too small and not as good as Creed Humphrey.
