Analysis: 

Gallon has strong hands, displaying great hand-eye coordination. He runs good routes and can read defensive zones. The Michigan product lacks top end speed, but shows burst and agility on tape.

Gallon shows some similarities to Julian Edelman. He may be able to contribute on special teams and has traits that could translate to the NFL. Almost built like a running back, great vision with the ball in his hands. His production in the Big Ten stood out on numerous occasions. Loves the game, very passionate.
