That was probably an older article. Prior to this season, he was as good as gone to the NFL after this season. When the starting LT, Stephon Heyer, went down last year (and the TE that attempted to replace him couldn't quite get the job done), Gaither got the nod at LT, and pretty much dominated the top pass rushers in the ACC. This included Kiwanuka from BC, and the number 1 pick in this years draft, Mario Williams.
Coming into this season, the Heyer was almost completely healthy, so Gaither was moved to RT, where he has done a less than stellar job against outmanned opponents (with the exception of playing against WVU, and that wasn't as dominating as he should be). As Maryland fans, we're not sure what the deal is. He was suspended for 2 weeks of camp this year for some violation of rules, but that is still no excuse for not playing hard when you come back.
Alot of us are wondering if he has been listening to too many of his "posse" saying that he is going to be a first round pick this season, regardless of how he plays. If he doesn't get his head straight, he won't even be a first DAY pick.
Hopefully he picks it up now that Maryland is getting into the ACC schedule (starting with a very good Georgia Tech team on Saturday).
