    Sick athlete! Sick play maker!

    Gilbert didn't get fat returning kicks against mickey mouse schools he has Td returns against Texas and Oklahoma. Also a pick 6 against Texas.

    Going into the combine i considered it close between the top 4 DBs. CBs Gilbert-Dennard and safeties Clinton-Dix and Pryor.

    Gilbert clearly had the best workout out of that bunch. Clinton-Dix and Pryor both ran 4.58 40s. Gilbert ran 4.37 and 4.38. Now you can argue that they are safeties it is a different position but Gibert is the same size as those guys and out lifted them. 20 reps vs 18 for Pryor and 11 for Dix and 15 for Dennard.

    Then you add what a dynamic kick returner he was it breaks all ties if it is even a tie. Gilbert is the best defensive back in this draft!

    My concern with Gilbert is I feel like I haven't seen him enough in man coverage. I'll have to watch more tape on him I guess. Most of what I saw was him in zone and we run more man than anything.

    a 2nd round CB I like is Kyle Fuller, physical kid, he's really a bigger Verner. I dont want to see us reach for a CB at 11.

    gilbert at 11 wouldnt be a reach in my opinion he is the best defensive player in the back end of this draft
