Gibran Hamdan

SELECTED BY CAROLINA , ROUND 7, PICK 31, OVERALL PICK 232
QB | (6-4, 219, 5.0) | Indiana
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Played football and baseball at Indiana. Redshirted in 1998, but played eight games with the Hoosiers' baseball team. Played only as the team's holder on placement kicks in '99, when he also saw action in 36 games with the baseball team. Played in every game in 2000 and completed 2-of-5 passes for 60 yards and one touchdown. Played in every game in '01 but played only in routes and as a holder. Started 49 games at first base for the baseball team and hit .335 with six home runs and 38 RBIs; was named Academic All-Big Ten. Played in 11 of 12 games in '02 and completed 152-of-293-2,115-9-14. Did not participate in spring baseball because his eligibility had run out.

Positives: Big, intelligent and has a capable arm. Capable of making plays, as he showed in a four-TD game vs. Wisconsin.

Negatives: Panics under pressure, but he did not have a great offensive line or running game. Inconsistent in terms of accuracy and production.

Summary: Best chance to play sports professionally is likely on the baseball field.
