BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after posting career-high numbers of 80/27/10. Junior-year totals included 43/10.5/3.5 after 37/10/1.5 as a sophomore.
POSITIVES: Explosive college pass-rusher who disrupts the action in the opponent.s backfield. Quick off the snap, plays with good pad level, and fast up the field. Fluid changing direction with the ability to immediately alter his angle of attack and make plays down the line in pursuit. Effectively uses his hands to protect himself and rarely off his feet. Smart and stays with assignments.
NEGATIVES: Struggles shedding blocks and usually takes wide angles around linemen.
ANALYSIS: Gilberry comes off a terrific senior season and he has significantly elevated his draft stock. He gives effort in his all-around game and will get consideration as a conventional defensive end or a three-technique/inside pass-rusher.
