    It's not just the speed that Gilbert has it's his quickness. His ability to cut on a dime. Put him on C Johnson & with his speed & quickness & leaping ability Gilbert shuts him down. Plus don't forget his punt return ability. We draft him we not only get a shutdown corner but someone who will put points on the board on a regular basis. Think about this...If one of the top two OL or Sammy Watkins is still on the board we could even trade back a couple of spots, pick up an extra 2nd round & 4th round pick & still get Gilbert in the first round.

    I would not mind that but if the Vikings pass on Dennard and the Lions select Dennard, I would not be too happy about it

    You're selling him a little too hard, homeskillet. He hasn't taken a snap in the NFL yet, but he can shut down Megatron? Might wanna pump the brakes on that one.

    Nobody thought Sherman would be nearly as good as he is, and nobody felt Revis would be as good as he wound up being. You don't really know until they're out there playing professional ball.

    Revis good? If Revis was good, why did he let Ted Ginn Junior burn him for a touchdown? He is not that good

    Everybody is going to get burned from time to time. No cornerback has had a perfect career.

    Revis was better than he is now, but he's still a fantastic corner, and he was the best corner for a hot minute.

    I am actually terrified of this happening.

    Every mock I see where Watkins is available at 8 and the three QBs are gone have the Vikes taking Watkins ... because lord knows Megatron and Watkins would be something NOBODY in the league wants to see.

    I like Gilbert, but Gilbert or Dennard at No. 8 appears to be a stretch right now. I also don't think Barr fits if we stay a 4-3.

    If Watkins is at No. 8 and Manziel/Bridgewater/Bortles are gone ... I feel like we have to take him.

    Or they may trade back with someone not in their division.
