Justin Gilbert is a Pile Inspector

According to GMs and reported by NFL.com, Justin Gilbert is a "pile inspector" meaning that he doesn't like to tackle.  That's a problem for most teams and especially the Steelers because they expect their cornerbacks to tackle.  That is part of the job description and being a "pile inspector" doesn't fit the bill.

Currently ranked at #13 overall (per NFL.com), Oklahoma State's, playmaking cornerback is arguably the drafts #1 rated cornerback.  He is a playmaker with exceptional speed and athleticism but it's debatable on whether he is the draft's #1 corner.
