Player Overview

A three-star wide receiver recruit, Gallon, who played mostly quarterback and running back in high school, didn't receive many offers from in-state schools but jumped at the chance to join Rich Rodriguez's squad in Ann Arbor.

After redshirting in 2009, he played a reserve role as a freshman and sophomore before claiming a spot in the starting line-up in 2012, setting career-bests with a record-breaking senior season in 2013.

Gallon looks and runs like a running back and is quicker than fast. Not the biggest or fastest, but is a crisp, clean route runner with usually-sure hands. He has savvy awareness and very good vision with the ball in his hands to create some separation and do something after the catch.

Gallon will be limited in the NFL due to his smallish frame and mediocre speed, but he is a tough, competitive football player who will find a niche at the next level as a No. 4 or 5 WR.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Balanced athlete with quick, controlled feet. Runs routes with purpose and decisiveness to create some running room. Good patience in his patterns to hold defenders. Sharp footwork in/out of his breaks.

Excellent awareness and sense of surroundings before and after the catch. Works back to the ball and has a great feel for defenders to elude and create. Strong, aggressive hands to pluck and does a nice job in contested situations to attack the ball, playing much bigger than his listed size. Natural body adjustments with focus to finish off-target throws, tracking the ball well downfield. Shifty cuts to sidestep defenders and follow blocks with good wiggle in space. Pesky ballcarrier to tackle.

Tough and durable. Good experience on special teams as a kick and punt returner. Excellent production as a two-year starter, leading Michigan in receiving both years, including a record-breaking 2013 season. Broke Braylon Edwards' single-season Michigan receiving yards record (1,373) and set a new Big Ten single-game record for receiving yards (369) vs. Indiana, which also ranks second in FBS history.

WEAKNESSES: Short, smallish frame with limited length and catching radius. Not a big target for passers. Will get pushed around by defenders and most cornerbacks tower over him. Struggles to win body positioning and too easy for defenders to extend their reach in front of him.

Less than adequate speed and too often caught from behind, lacking multiple gears down the field. Average-at-best burst and not the most sudden off the line of scrimmage. Will have some drops when looking to run before securing and not as easy for him to finish 50/50 catches.
