False. He's a ready, willing, and violent blocker. I like watching him block more than I like watching him run.

Ready, willing, and violent do not translate to success. Njoku is ready and willing to block but that doesn't mean he was a good blocker. He will need some refinement. He doesn't shy away from it, which is a plus, but doesn't mean he's a good blocker

Bleacher Report:
His blocking style will get him in trouble, since relying strictly on power will have him get blown up and miss blocks entirely.

NFL:
Not ready for NFL pass protection duties yet.

SB Nation:
Lastly, Gallman isnít a good pass protector. As a running back, if you canít pass protect, you donít play.

FanRag:
While his functional strength and anchor as a pass blocker are not great, his well-rounded skill set should still give him the opportunity to eventually become a three-down back.

Not so big a fail, actually. In high school Wayne Gallman's nickname was "Gelatin", because he had so much shake and wiggle on the field. He was also regarded as the collagen that held the team together. There was something else about having marshmallows and pieces of fruit suspended midway through him but I never could understand how they did that.

So don't beat yourself up over it- you were close!

He gets himself out of position in pass protection. It's a matter of being in the right spot for him, not anything about his physicality. And I guess I'm mostly commending his run blocking. Clemson had Watson run a lot and Gallman was the lead blocker on a lot of those. Watch the national championship game and how he throws his body around into guys on Watson's touchdown run. It's super fun to watch. I don't think he'll have any problems learning how to pass protect with us. He's a super high effort guy and does everything you ask and he's got the physicality to be a good blocker.
