Fred Gibson (http://www.fannation.com/tags/show_tag/2360), the one-time promising collegiate star turned NFL footnote, has morphed from a Falcons (http://www.fannation.com/tags/show_tag/1) roster hopeful to a player "very much in the mix." The speedy 6-foot-4 wide receiver has created a buzz during the Falcons (http://www.fannation.com/tags/show_tag/1)' offseason drills by making plays -- albeit in non-contact drills -- at a position that needs playmakers. The recent injury to veteran Brian Finneran (http://www.fannation.com/tags/show_tag/719) opened up opportunity for Gibson and the others. It was on SI.com and from the atlanta journal.
