Marcus Gilbert

Height: 6’6
Weight: 330
College: Florida

Projected: 3rd-4th Round

Overview:

Marcus Gilbert is another mid-round tackle prospect that might be a better fit inside at guard. He’s strong and has a good anchor but he needs a lot of work on his technique. He has to use his hands better to be more effective and he plays with poor leverage at times. He will not be able to play left tackle in the NFL simply because he doesn’t have the footwork to do so.  His kick-slide is slow and lumbering and speed rushers would have a field day against him.
