Gilmore Overlooked By Board

73 posts in this topic

Some of you continue to say "he is a reach", my point was that he would not be a reach. If you want to say he is a reach, you should say why. This guy doesn't have perfect technique, but he continues to improve. Every season he has played, he continues to get more tackles. This guy very well could be BPA at #9. Every corner has shitty tape on himself.... I think this guy has the most potential, and it seems like everyone just likes to say "he is a combine guy", when in fact not many analysts or scouts have come out and said that this was true. Many analysts and scouts are even coming out and saying that he is actually good on tape and the combine.... I think it is pretty ignorant to say that he is only good at the combine, that simply is not true.

I want Lance Lewis on this team..

Went to his rival high school. Watched his entire high school career. He was absolutely unbelievable. He and Dee Bost (SG for Mississippi St.) were unstoppable. He huge, fast and catches everything. Only reason he didn't go to a bigger school was because of grades.

but yeah, would not mind Gilmore as a Panther but wouldn't be my first choice at 9.

Bottom line was Gilmore was not a shut down corner in college. His play on the field was terribly inconsistent. Got beat and gave up big plays a lot.

Hell to the fuggin no you dont take this guy in the top 10.

Im still not convinced Gilmore is better than Hosley and Hayward.

He damn sure aint better than Jenkins.

In my opinion: If Cox and Coples are gone, Gilmore will be our pick.

Does anyone in here evaluate film and know what to look for when a CB is playing Zone or Man?

If you can tell the difference, then ask yourself if you can tell which play is being ran and who's got what assignment...

If you can't do both of those consistently, don't say anything about Gilmore getting burned or playing bad.

Heck most on here thought that Kirkpatrick was playing Zone all the time in college when he even admitted in an interview that Bama ran mostly Man and the zone looks they played were bump and run man coverage that floated into zone coverage in some places depending on what routes where ran.

Stats are irrelevant for defenders. I bet if you looked hard enough Alabama's D is on the field a lot less than USCs. Gilmore appears to have all the measurables and ok tape to back it up. He does have holes in his game so maybe he's not worth a 9th pick. I'm leery of any player that makes a huge jump in the media rankings because generally actual scouts don't change their grades nearly as much as a pundit who's trying to draw interest to his stories.

I was fine with taking him, but after watching some of his games on YouTube he looks awful. He gets burned on at least half the passes that get thrown his way and is below average as a tackler. It's like watching Sherrod Martin at corner.

He's got great size/speed, but that's not enough. I'd rather take Coples than this guy and I'm by no means on the Coples bandwagon. I really hope Cox is on the board because he's head and shoulders above both Coples AND Gilmore, IMO.

Guys that might be there and be worth the 9th pick

Cox

Keuchly

Gilmore

Floyd

Caplan said last night on Sirius that this was the deepest WR draft in history. Also said that there was not a "megatron" in this draft. Cross off Floyd

Said Kuechly was best LB in draft probably fit better in 43 at MLB but could play Sam or Will. Not a slam dunk need. Cross off Floyd.

Gushed about Cox and said he might not get past 6. All scouts he had spoken to said he was a great prospect and chould play all DLine positions except for nose. Far and away the best DL in draft.

Definite consideration.

Gilmore was another guy who eh said could go top ten just because of his skills and the fact that he had a big upside. He has been compared to D Woodson because of toughness, ability to rush QB and could play left, right, slot CB positions. Definite consideration

Said that Cox, Gilmore and would most likely be the targets of top ten trades

Jenkins has the best pure coverage skills out of all the CBs. But for the off-field issues, he would be top 10. Better than Claiborne, Kirkpatrick and Gilmore. Since Jenkins will be around later, I wouldn't pick any of his less skilled on-field rivals in the first. But that's just me.
