RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Gilbert will compete with the likes of Buster Skrine and Leon McFadden to earn the starting cornerback job opposite Pro-Bowler Joe Haden in 2014. The rookie has demonstrated a nose for the football in his past, as he collected seven interceptions during his senior season at Oklahoma State. He likely won't make many tackles, but if he earns the starting job, opposing quarterbacks will likely look his way frequently rather than take their chances against Haden. This would give the No. 8 overall pick in the 2014 draft plenty of opportunities to create turnovers this season.
