Draft Scout Justin Gilbert News
03/26/14 - 2014 Pro Days: Gilbert, Lowe turn heads at Oklahoma State workout...While standing on the 4.37 second 40-yard dash time he recorded in Indianapolis, Gilbert did participate in the short shuttle and 3-cone drill. Unfortunately, according to a report from NFL.com, Gilbert recorded surprisingly slow times in these events (4.43 and 6.91 seconds, respectively), numbers that would have ranked among the slowest of defensive backs tested at the Combine. These numbers could be seen as red-flags by scouts who view Gilbert as much faster in a straight-line than he is fluid when changing directions -- obviously a critical skill when covering NFL receivers.
While Gilbert's timed workout may have raised some eyebrows, his tape is enough to raise the blood pressure of opposing quarterbacks. Gilbert led the Big 12 with seven interceptions in 2013 and is dynamic with the ball in his hands. He returned six kickoffs for touchdowns over his career and two interceptions for scores as a senior. He also has shown a knack for making big plays against top competition. During his breakout 2011 campaign, Gilbert recorded interceptions against Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Ryan Tannehill. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
03/26/14 - 2014 Pro Days: Gilbert, Lowe turn heads at Oklahoma State workout...After running a faster 40-yard dash time than any other defender tested at the 2014 Combine, Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert still had to be talked out of competing in the event during Thursday's Pro Day workout in Stillwater. "I wanted to [run] but my agent said my time was pretty good at the Combine and I didn't need to run," Gilbert told OkState.com, the Cowboys' official athletics website. "I talked with Coach Glass a couple days ago when I was still trying to decide whether or not to run the 40 and he said I had one of the fastest times there so I didn't really need to run. I relaxed a little bit today and just kind of took it easy." - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
03/26/14 - 2014 NFL Draft: Week 2 Pro Day takeaways...Dennard and Gilbert continue to ascend...After running a 4.37 40-yard dash in Indianapolis, Gilbert was advised not to run at Oklahoma State's Pro Day on Thursday, but he did slightly improve his time in the 3-cone drill (6.91) and performed average in the short shuttle (4.43) after not participating in that drill in Indianapolis. With his blend of height, length and pure speed, Gilbert will likely be high on several draft boards and nothing at his Pro Day will change that. Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert and head coach Mike Tomlin were present at both workouts and will likely consider both with their 15th pick in the first round … if either is still on the board. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
02/20/14 - 2014 NFL Draft Scout Pre-Combine Top 64 Prospects: 20. Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State, 6-0, 200, 4.52, 1...Texas prep sensation as quarterback, defensive back, returner, track star, basketball player, Gilbert's overall athleticism continues to be his best asset. However, he must show he is willing to maintain high level of play after admittedly becoming complacent in 2012 after a great 2011 season. He stood out again in 2013 with six interceptions, including two for touchdowns, and a 100-yard kickoff return. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
