07/23/14 - CB Justin Gilbert agreed to a four-year, $12.8 million contract with the Browns, leaving just one 2014 draft pick unsigned.
Gilbert, the eighth overall pick in May, will report to training camp and compete with Buster Skrine to start opposite Joe Haden in the remodeled defensive backfield of the Browns. Haden signed a long-term deal in the offseason, which also included a deal to bring in free agent strong safety Donte Whitner.
The lone unsigned 2014 draft pick is 11th overall selection Taylor Lewan. The Michigan offensive tackle is projected as a rookie starter at right tackle with the Tennessee Titans.
NFLDraftScout.com ranked Gilbert second among cornerbacks in the Class of 2014, but he has the size-speed combination to thrive in coach Mike Pettine's scheme.
Gilbert, who can also return kicks, is 6-0, 202, and was clocked at 4.31 seconds in his fastest 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine. He also bench-pressed 225 pounds 20 times and has a 35 1/2-inch vertical.
Gilbert was one of two first-rounders for the Browns, who used the 22nd pick to draft quarterback Johnny Manziel. Manziel signed his rookie deal -- the customary four-year contract with a fifth-year option -- last month. He is competing with Brian Hoyer to be the Browns' starter Week 1.
