At 6'6, 304 pounds, Gardner is large man. Big frame, long arms, big bear paws, and is totally a Parcells/Sparano-guy: a mauler who plays aggressive and doesn't take any shit from you, you goddamned pansy. Gardner is a hard worker and started all four years at GT. He's not very quick on his feet, but for a sixth-round trencher, he doesn't need to be. He'll just pick you up and eat you. He's perfectly suited for the running game, which is good news for Black Thunder and company. It's a solid pick and adds depth to the offensive line. Donald Thomas, anyone?
