CSU Rams WR Gallup Making A Name For Himself
Pro Football Focus named Gallup one of the best senior receivers in the past decade.
Michael Gallup Is One Of The Best
Colorado State Rams fans know what kind of talent Michael Gallup has. Now the country is getting a look at Gallup’s talent. Gallup was invited to the Senior Bowl and Pro Football Focus named him one of the best senior wide receivers in the last decade.
Gallup was PFF’s highest rated wide receiver this year with a 92.1 rating. “He was one of the most efficient producers at his position this year, as his 3.47 average yards per route run ranked third among draft prospects, and 14th across the nation’s receivers,” according to Pro Football Focus.
Gallup has had a productive career at Colorado State. In two seasons in Fort Collins, Gallup has accumulated 176 catches, 2685 yards, and 21 touchdowns. Gallup has been project to be drafted anywhere from the second to sixth rounds.
Even with the eyes focused on the quarterbacks at the Senior Bowl. Gallup has been a stand out performer. Denver Broncos coach Vance Joseph was complementary of Gallup after Wednesday’s Senior Bowl practice, “He made some plays today. He got off to a slow start, so we gave him a little pep talk. He came back and made some plays. I’ve watched him play all year. He’s made big-time plays against big-time competition. I’m not surprised he can play.”
One knock that has been presented about Gallup is his speed. But that hasn’t been a big factor in his success. Gallup uses his quickness and strength to create separation and get open.
Michael Gallup will go down as one of the best wide receivers in CSU Rams history. Let’s hope he can translate that to next level and have a long and successful career.
