RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

There was no outlook written for Marcus Gilchrist.

2015

Following a 2014 campaign with the Chargers in which he racked up 76 tackles, one sack, five passes defensed, one pick, and two forced fumbles in 16 games, Gilchrist is slated to start at safety next to Calvin Pryor in 2015. The addition of Gilchrist is a piece of the improvement to the Jets' secondary along with fellow offseason signees Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie, and Buster Skrine.

2014

Gilchrist got the chance to start at strong safety in 2013, and he responded with a great season, playing in all 16 games and logging 77 total tackles and two interceptions. The Bolts appear very happy with Gilchrist as they waived the once very highly touted Brandon Taylor this offseason.

2013

Gilchrist has been used only as a corner thus far in his career, but he has been working exclusively at strong safety during camp and could very well open the season as the starter opposite Eric Weddle if Brandon Taylor is not fully recovered from ACL surgery.

2012

It looks like Gilchrist, who had two interceptions in 2011, will be the third corner in San Diego this season.

2011

Gilchrist has a fantastic opportunity to make a big impact in his first season. He is slotted to serve as the primary nickel back and has a chance to become the primary kick and punt returner with the departure of Darren Sproles. At Clemson, Gilchrist was a dangerous return man, and he has said that he welcomes the chance to take on that role in San Diego.
