"Gary topped college football guru Bruce Feldman’s annual list of players with outstanding physical abilities. Last year’s edition ranked former Penn State running back Saquon Barkley No. 1. The year before that, it was former Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett. This year, it’s Gary, the rising junior defensive end who started all 13 games for Michigan last fall.
“The No. 1 overall prospect in the 2016 recruiting class hasn’t disappointed,” Feldman wrote in The Athletic. “He made first-team All-Big Ten as a sophomore in 2017 after producing 66 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, six sacks and seven quarterback hurries.
“The 6-foot-5 Gary is at the same weight he was at this time last year — 287 pounds — and his 40-yard dash time is the same at 4.57 seconds. His 3-cone drill at 6.79 was a touch behind last year’s 6.70, although his time this year still would beat every defensive lineman at this year’s NFL scouting combine. His 4.22 pro agility shuttle time also would top every D-lineman at the combine. Next best was 4.32. Another really impressive feat: his 10-4 broad jump, which was 8 inches better than what he did a year ago.”
