Justin Gilbert: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Gilbert, the eighth overall pick in May's NFL Draft, projects as a starter at cornerback out of the gate opposite Joe Haden, assuming he overtakes Buster Skrine on the Browns' depth chart, as expected.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Gilbert sat out practice last week after slightly tweaking his right knee during OTAs, but is now back on the field as expected. The rookie first-rounder is already in competition to earn the starting cornerback position opposite Pro-Bowler Joe Haden and should see extensive playing time this season.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Gilbert tweaked his right knee during OTAs last Wednesday, but the incident is not considered serious. The rookie is likely sitting out Tuesday's practice merely as a precaution and could return to action later this week. When ready, Gilbert is expected to compete for Cleveland's starting cornerback position opposite Joe Haden.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)The Browns traded the fourth overall pick to Buffalo, moving back to the ninth pick in the process, and then they traded with Minnesota to move up one spot to eight. Gilbert wasn't expected to go this soon, but he's the consensus top corner in the draft and fills a big need opposite the superb Joe Haden in Cleveland. If Gilbert improves his technique and capitalizes on his rare athleticism, he and Haden could provide an intimidating corner duo in the AFC North.
