BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter awarded all-Conference honors since his junior season. Senior receiving numbers included 40/544/2, when he
also averaged 15.6 yards on 28 punt returns with three more scores. Junior receiving totals included 69/1,043/7 with a 19
yard average on 20 punt returns and three more scores.
POSITIVES: Gilchrist is a productive and tough receiver who has proven himself to be a game- breaking punt returner. His size is a limiting
factor in the NFL, yet his special teams ability could help him find his way onto a roster as a fifth receiver.
NEGATIVES: Lacks strong hands and lets some catchable throws slip through his fingers. Small and will be out-positioned by large defenders.
Does not possess the breakaway speed.
ANALYSIS: Elusive ball handler who creates his own yardage. Quickly releases off the line, runs sharp routes and gets separation from
opponents. Easily makes the reception in stride, adjusting to the errant throw, and displays good eye/hand coordination. Resilient,
goes over the middle of the field and takes a big hit, yet holds onto the throw. Effectively uses the sidelines and protects
the ball with his frame. Has a burst of speed, and makes the reception away from his frame. Gives effort blocking downfield.
Creates his own yardage, handling the ball either running after the reception or returning punts.
