Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State

After a quiet junior year, Gilbert rebounded nicely in 2013 for the Oklahoma State Cowboys. For a program better known for its offense, he was the clear team leader and highlight-maker on special teams. He finished tied for fourth in the nation with six INTs.

Gilbert has above-average height for a corner and displays nice fluidity in his lower half. Acknowledged that his focus took a step back after a lackluster junior season and admitted he had something to prove as a senior.

Long arms. Above-average ability to turn and quickly locate the ball. Good instincts. Vulnerable to double moves given his aggressive, ball-hawking style of play. Quick to read and react. Not much wasted motion/steps when changing directions. Seems to prefer to play press and doesn't mind arm fighting downfield. Pretty straight line speed (4.5 40). Physical tackler. Sheds blocks with ease. Must improve discipline when setting the edge.

Gilbert projects as an early first round pick, possibly the first corner taken in the 2014 NFL Draft.
