Gilmore Overlooked By Board

I don't know what it is, but this kid just screams BUST.

The workouts look great, but I think at the end of the day, Kirkpatrick is just a better football player.

I'd have no problem taking him, as long as we do something about the front 7 in the second.

I think it's fairly safe to say we will either go 1-DB 2-Front Seven or vise versa.

Let's just draft Gilmore, then Lewis in the seventh. Win-Win!

It's your desire to not draft him that is telling you he is a bust.

Not with the 9th pick. I dont like reaching for need. Take the BPA at #9, or trade down.

I think Gilmore has been moving up board because all the other CBs are boneheads. Dre gets caught with weed, Janoris has a laundry list, Minnifield had surgery, and now Alfonzo punches a cop (after getting in a fight in his final college game and looking like poop in the senior bowl practice before leaving early in the week).

He's good and I was once almost sucked in by the hype of him being top 10 material. But I just don't think he's worth it unless Cox and Coples are both gone and no trade is possible. And even then, Floyd or Kluechly might be a better option.

But he isn't. Dre has half as many tackles & ints.

Lance Lewis caught so many passes/yards because the garbage DC wanted the CBs to play 5-10 yards off 3/4ths of the time against a spread team that throws the ball 60 times a game.

I don't think there's a position in football where stats are more worthless than CB. If a CB is doing his job, he's not going to rack up stats because the QB is going to be avoiding him.

I'm intrigued by Gilmore, but I don't want him at #9. The only CB I would want at #9 would be Claiborne.

Tackles maybe, but ints are in no way a meaningless stats when it comes to CBs. That's as important as sacks for DEs.

Dre had 3 ints versus Gilmore's 8, 4 of which he had this past season.

Not really. INTs are overrated when looking at how a CB performs. Just look at Reevis. I think it was two years ago that he had no INTs because he was able to shut down his side of the field. INTs do indicate you have good ball skills but it can also be an indication of being thrown at a lot. But lack of INTs isn't a bad sign either.

Overrated isn't meaningless, and neither are they overrated. How many superbowls have been won, or secured, because of an interception returned for a touchdown? More than one in the past few years has.

It isn't a bad sign, but it can show bad ball skills when it's in the air. Dre doesn't have nearly the same skills that Gilmore does when the ball is in the air, and Revis has more than both of them.

You remember that 360 int Revis made when he was covering Smith? That wasn't meaningless or overrated.
