Campus to Canton analyst, Felix Sharpe (@sharpereview) joins Matt Waldman’s RSP Film Room for an in-depth review of Georgia Tech running back, Jahmyr Gibbs, a rising sophomore with excellent NFL potential.
It’s always a pleasure to watch tape with new guests. Felix Sharpe is someone I’ve wanted to join me for a while, but I get wrapped up in my own little world and invitations get delayed.
A former D-I defensive back and teammate of NFL corner Brandon Carr, Sharpe is an excellent writer and analyst at Campus to Canton. If you’re not familiar with their leagues — imagine running a football team where your college team feeds your pro team like farm teams in baseball feed the major leagues.
As I free up more time, I will have to shoehorn this format into my fantasy life.
Sharpe joins me to examine Yellow Jackets’ 2020 freshman phenom, Jahmyr Gibbs. Sharpe compares Gibbs to a young Aaron Jones — an astute comp when projecting Sharpe’s potential to add weight and continue his development as an inside runner and pass protector.

If you’re seeking a current comp based on the premise that Gibbs doesn’t add weight and doesn’t address his minor flaws as a decision-maker and more pressing issues as pass protector, my standing comparison is a faster Justin Jackson with better hands. Either way, you’re looking at player whose freshman tape places him in the conversation of a talented contributor who could show a lot more if he stayed healthy to a Pro Bowl starter.
Keep in mind, we’re making comps based on the premise of Gibbs at a minimum, acclimating fast to the league and earning opportunities to play to his current tape and at best, developing his body and his game beyond his current status.
