    Kevin Colbert and multiple Steelers coaches seen talking to Justin Gilbert at OSU pro day

    By Neal Coolong on Mar 13 2014



    They're always doing their homework. With Steelers' brass present at Oklahoma State's pro day Thursday, they got an eyeful of highly rated cornerback Justin Gilbert.

    Longtime draft analyst Tony Pauline is well-connected. It looks like Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert made a few connections at his pro day Thursday as well.

    Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert and multiple coaches were seen speaking with Gilbert Thursday, and as Pauline noted via Twitter, he "looked the part."

    Some interesting side conversation came from Pauline after Tweeting that news Thursday.

    It was in response to a Steelers fan who denounced the first round candidacy of Michigan State's Darqueze Dennard. Apparently, like many, Pauline likes the raw talent displayed by Texas Christian's Jason Verrett. His biggest (or smallest) detriment is his lack of size, which is something Gilbert has. He also has athleticism.

    Many Steelers fans are hoping that size and athleticism fall to the No. 15 pick.

    Thanks for playing though.
    I made an innocuous comment about how the draft Kiper posted might be changing and you just couldn't wait to argue about it. Take it easy "super fan" quoting the best player available rhetoric as if you're the only one who's ever heard that said . And try reading for comprehension. What I said was they look at the roster along with who's on the board to make their decision. If multiple available guys are essentially equal then roster - starters and depth, come into the equation of who they will draft. To think otherwise makes one a moron. They aren't drafting 'best available' in a vacuum.

    This is why the Steelers have generally tried to fill any roster holes with free agency prior to the draft....

    those 2 picks must have been a coincident.
    ...and with JJ we still have "a huge need at OLB"

    Like I said in "the other thread" that is what happens when you rush and only open the last page of the thread.

    Justin Gilbert can run the 40 but his other drills might concern scouts.



    By Rob Rang | The Sports Xchange/CBSSports.com
    March 13, 2014

    After running a faster 40-yard dash time than any other defender tested at the 2014 Combine, Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert still had to be talked out of competing in the event during Thursday's Pro Day workout in Stillwater.

    "I wanted to [run] but my agent said my time was pretty good at the Combine and I didn't need to run," Gilbert told OkState.com, the Cowboys' official athletics website. "I talked with Coach Glass a couple days ago when I was still trying to decide whether or not to run the 40 and he said I had one of the fastest times there so I didn't really need to run. I relaxed a little bit today and just kind of took it easy."

    While standing on the 4.37 second 40-yard dash time he recorded in Indianapolis, Gilbert did participate in the short shuttle and 3-cone drill. Unfortunately, according to a report from NFL.com, Gilbert recorded surprisingly slow times in these events (4.43 and 6.91 seconds, respectively), numbers that would have ranked among the slowest of defensive backs tested at the Combine.

    These numbers could be seen as red-flags by scouts who view Gilbert as much faster in a straight-line than he is fluid when changing directions -- obviously a critical skill when covering NFL receivers.
