Draft Scout Crockett Gillmore News
08/31/15 - TE Crockett Gillmore, a second-year player out of Colorado State, was initially used as a blocker last year, but caught more passes when Dennis Pitta went down because of a season-ending hip injury. Gillmore, who is 6-foot-6 and 270 pounds, has played an even bigger role this preseason as a pass-catcher and coach John Harbaugh is confident he can carry the load on offense.
"I felt ready from the beginning, from the moment I started training camp," Gilmore said of being a primary receiver. "It's not new to me."
08/10/15 - TE Crockett Gillmore has taken over the top spot on the depth chart while putting together a solid camp.
After being drafted in the third round out of Colorado State, Gillmore was primarily seen as a blocking tight end, especially at 6-feet-6, 256 pounds. However, Gillmore took over the second spot behind Owen Daniels when Dennis Pitta went down with a season-ending hip injury. Daniels has since followed former offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak to Denver and there are questions whether Pitta will ever be able to return from his hip injury.
That has put Gillmore in a position to serve primarily as a pass-catcher, rather than just a blocking tight end.
"It's camp, and we're all grinding through it," Gillmore said. "We're doing everything we can to be the best football players we can be. It's really just part of the regimen of going in and going to work every day."
Gillmore has credited Pitta with helping him get better at the position.
"Dennis has always been a guy that's excited to help anybody around him," Gillmore said.
"Obviously, his numbers have helped, but we're just excited to have him around. We watch film with him, because that's your ideal to be a tight end. A Pro Bowler, Super Bowl champ, you're going to listen to him."
01/05/15 - TE Crockett Gillmore only had one catch for 21 yards against the Steelers, but it was a game-changing reception. In the regular season, he had 10 catches for 121 yards. "We focus on that all year," Gilmore said. "That's what we talk about. A lot of teams talk about if they can do it. Coach Harbaugh does a good job instilling that attitude from the first day we were here. That's what we talk about, championships. That is what we are here to do."
12/10/14 - TE Crockett Gillmore is still dealing with a back injury that sidelined him against the Dolphins.
10/27/14 - TE Crockett Gillmore got his first NFL start after Owen Daniels underwent arthroscopic knee surgery last week. Gillmore caught two passes for 23 yards. He was also solid with his blocking and could play an increased role against Pittsburgh. "Crockett played well," coach John Harbaugh said. "Crock did a good job. He made a lot of catches, made a lot of good blocks. He has a lot of potential as a player."
