Thread: Marcus Gilbert UGH

    Marcus Gilbert UGH

    I will do I write up of Gilbert based off my notes. I know it won't be a great one though. He is a a RTO or a RG. Really struggles with speed and is sloppy and lazy with technique. Very inconsistent. Catch blocker and doesn't take the action to the defender.
    Trade our 1/15 to SF for 1/29 & 2/56

    5c) Khyri Thornton-DT-Southern Miss

    That's why they hired Sean Kugler...

    Marcus Gilbert and Maurkice Pouncey are close friends, that alone will keep Gilbert motivated.

    Gilbert may be a RT only, but that's what we need with Flo playing probably one more season and Colon's status uncertain.

    I don't mind that we took him, I just don't like where we took him. To me, he is a 4th round tackle. But, I hope that he is better than I have observed.

    Mike Mayock is on record as saying Marcus Gilbert is a second rounder...

    I find it impossible to believe that the Steelers scouting department and coaching staff graded this guy incorrectly by a minimum of 34 spots (2.63 to 4.97). I have to believe Gilbert is closer to a 2nd round pick than a 4th round pick.

    Wexell on Gilbert....I agree


    9:40 p.m.: I wish I didn't have to be so negative, and there's always the very, very, most excellent chance that I'm wrong, but I don't like the Steelers' second-round pick Marcus Gilbert.

    I watched Florida closely the last two years because of the Pouncey twins, and this past season it was a struggle to watch because of the rest of the Florida line. Gilbert was one of the reasons, as he was beaten too often for my taste at LT. He was moved to RT by the end of the season, but by then I had stopped watching. Perhaps he was better on the right side. Hopefully he was.

    OL Coach Sean Kugler isn't sure where the 6-6.1, 330-pounder will play. He mentioned that he likes the way Gilbert pulls, and that he could end up at guard, but that "his position will come out."

    Gilbert is the son of a Secret Service agent who guarded the last three presidents. The hope here is that Marcus develops better and more quickly than Tony Hills has, but count me among those on the negative side right now

    Gilbert's best position will either be at RT or at RG, both positions of need for the Steelers.

    I totally agree!! I even have in my notes that he looks much more comfortable on the Right side. Just think he could have gone at least a round later though, if not two. This reminds me of the Essex draft pick.

    Once again, Colbert shows a penchant for second-pick mediocrity.
