BI recruiting guru Trent Smallwood says:
During his junior season, there was not a better defensive line prospect in the country
than Lamont Gaillard. Some added weight slowed him down a step in 2013, but if he can
get in the weight room and get back to his 2012 playing weight, he is going to be a
handful to block in Athens.
BI recruiting guru Carlton DeVooght says:
Lamont Gaillard is a stout defensive tackle who can plug the middle and take on
multiple offensive linemen. A participant in the Under Armor All-Star Game, Gilliard has
shown flashes of being one of the best defensive tackles in the country. He needs to
develop consistency, something that will be stressed by new defensive line Coach Tracy
Rocker. I believe under Rocker’s tutelage that Gilliard will develop into a star in the
middle of the Bulldogs defensive line.
