PLAYERS
Cortez Gilbert
Position: CB
Class: 5Sr
Conference: Southern
HT: 5-10.5
WT: 176
40 Time: 4.57
Biography: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after totals of 75/1/6. Junior numbers included 72/2/17.

Positives: Productive college cornerback with poor size/speed numbers for the next level. Quick flipping his hips off the line, recognizes assignments in zone and immediately locates the ball mid air. Affords good coverage, shows toughness against the run, and makes a lot of plays against screens passes in the open field.

Negatives: Prefers to side shuffle down the field rather than backpedal. Out-positioned by larger opponents. Just an average break to the throw out of his plant.

Analysis: Gilbert plays faster and stronger than his measurables and offers potential as a dime back/special teams player in the NFL.

Projection: FA
