    Count me a fan. It seems like it took Gilbert a little while to grow up and find his position, but by his senior year he was a team captain who was finding his way past double-teams into the backfield at an extraordinary rate. He's a legitimate 6'5" with long arms and rare explosiveness. He has started at both DT and DE. He's a smidgen on the light side, but 12 pounds heavier than Jarvis Green coming out of college -- and 2 inches taller.

    With the proliferation of 3-4 defenses I'd wager Gilbert's a legitimate 1st-round possibility and unlikely to last past the middle of round 2.

    I don't know anything about scouting players, but from what I've seen on some of draft highlight video's that you posted I agree with your assessment. He's my candidate at #23.

    You have to be intrigued by his speed and explosiveness. Looks like he's capable of overpowering offensive lineman. The only question is can he two gap. I'd take my chances.

    Very athletic and very strong. I wonder if he couldu take over for Seymour if he leaves next year.
