I didn't know this kid was at that level. Something tells me he won't run a 4.2, unless he already did and I am not aware of it.
    no, he runs tomorrow and Mike Mayock said today he expects Gilbert to run somewhere in the 4.3s....

    We should put this on hold for about a half day and after that we'll know more about some of these db's.

    Gilbert isn't great in run support
    So draft the top rated CB and then change him to fit the defense.
    Almost like when we drafted Lewis knowing he was a good cover corner and then forced him to play off the WR.

    CBS has Dennard as the top rated DB in the draft. And he is superb in run support. He fits what the Steelers like from a DB. Gilbert does not.

    Fuller is a really solid pick if he lasts to us in the second...and 4.35 is ridiculous.

    Why does CBS have Gilbert listed at 4.52?

    CBS also has Dennard in the 4.5's. Weird.
