2014 NFL Draft: Justin Gilbert scouting profile

New, comments

Oklahoma State's Justin Gilbert is one of the best cornerbacks in this year's NFL Draft. What makes him so good, and where will he be drafted?

With the Arizona Cardinals selecting 20th overall in this year's draft, they have a number of ways they could go. One possible pick is Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert, who is seen by many as a potential shutdown corner. He is not short, he is athletic and has good ball skills.

He is the top corner on many draft boards at cornerback, but assuredly is in the top three with Darqueze Dennard and Kyle Fuller.

SB Nation Studios ranks him as the top corner prospect.

For the Cardinals, he could be the long-term answer opposite Patrick Peterson. He would have a year to learn under Peterson and Antontio Cromartie and would compete for playing time inside.

Do you think he would be a good fit in Arizona?
