Gatlyn is a big boy and can be a handful in the trenches. This is an interior defensive lineman with great size. He looks to be able to carry his weight well and should be able to comfortably play over 300 pounds at the college level. He is a big dude who will present a stout presence.  He can be disruptive as he has good quickness off the ball. He displays the ability to fire off on the snap of the ball and get into the backfield. For a kid with good height he can come off the ball low and play with leverage. With his size, explosiveness and ability to keep his pads down, he can quickly get into and under a blocker's pads and knock them backwards. He does a good job of shooting his hands and being able to press blockers off of him. His explosive nature will allow him to get penetration, contributing best as a stout player who can draw blockers and hold his ground. He has the size and ability to play in space, defending the gap and helping those around him make plays. He runs well for his size and displays a good motor for a big boy. His quickness as a pass rusher allows him to be a handful as a bull rusher. He shows the ability to be active with his hands and has the ability to get his hips flipped and get skinny, working past the line of scrimmage. He is a beast from point A-to point-B, violently moving straight ahead. Gatlyn is a talented player that demonstrates the ability to develop into a highly productive college D-Lineman. Definitely a player to watch, as he could emerge into one of the top DL prospects in this class.
