DRAFT TALK: Jets look at San Jose State's Gilbert
By Jets Insider.com Staff
March 20th, 2009
Twenty six teams were on hand at San Jose State as they started the workout bright and early on a cold and breezy morning.
The star of the day, Jarron Gilbert, delivered as expected.
Gilbert measured 6'5"/284-pounds, four less than his combine weight. His jumps were fantastic as Gilbert posted a 37-inch vertical jump and 10-foot 7-inch broad. His forty's averaged 4.76 seconds, significantly faster than his performance at the combine. Gilbert's 10yd split was 1.67-seconds and his 20yd-split was 2.75 seconds. He ran into a slight breeze. Later Gilbert ran in the low 4.4's in the short shuttle and posted a 3-cone time of 7.57 seconds.
The almost three dozen scouts on hand watched as New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan put Gilbert through a series if defensive line drills. Even as the defensive backs started their workout the scouts paid little attention, watching every detail of Gilbert's session work. By all accounts it was a terrific performance and Gilbert is very much knocking on the door of round one.
Pauline told JetsInsider.com that Gilbert has been soaring up draft boards the past six months. He would be a terrific defensive end in Ryan's 3-4 system. Pauline thinks the 17th pick is a bit early for Gilbert's services but points out historically defensive linemen are always selected much earlier than originally projected.
Pauline's site, the TFYDraft.com, is scheduled to due an extensive interview with Gilbert this weekend he will share with JetsInsider.com.
