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