    Jarron Gilbert NFL Draft Scout.com Pro day report

    Spartans' defensive lineman Jarron Gilbert was the most impressive player at the San Jose State-Cal Poly-etc. Pro Day that occurred Friday. Twenty seven teams were represented at the workout, including head coaches Rex Ryan of the New York Jets and John Fox of the Carolina Panthers. Gilbert was the most impressive of the bunch, turning in a 4.76 40-yard dash at 6-5, 284 pounds. He also improved upon his already impressive Combine performances in the broad jump (10'7"), vertical (37"), short shuttle (4.40) and 3-cone (7.59). Typically, the collegiate coaches or scouts will put the players through the workouts. This workout was different, however, as Ryan took over the DL drills and worked Gilbert especially hard. Gilbert would seem to be a perfect fit in the Jets' 3-4 scheme at defensive end. The Jets will have plenty of competition in landing Gilbert's services, however, as he's lined up several private workouts already, including: Detroit, Dallas, New Orleans, Pittsburgh, San Diego, and Atlanta. - Rob Rang, The SportsXchange, NFLDraftScout.com *03/20/09* - San Jose State Pro day: It was Pro Day at San Jose State, and this was a far bigger deal than you may think. Thirty-five NFL observers were in attendance, including two headliners: new Ravens head coach Rex Ryan and Panthers head coach John Fox, according to comrade Nancy Gay, who made the trip this morning. As for players, Spartans defensive end Jarron Gilbert and Cal Poly wide receiver Ramses Barden were the main attractions. With two head coaches in the house, there goes any hope the Raiders were going to steal those two prospects unnoticed in the draft. If they want either of them, they'll have to draft them sooner than later. Gilbert would certainly add speed and versatility to the Raiders' 4-3 defense without having to spend the No. 7 overall pick on the issue. The son of former Saints offensive tackle Daren Gilbert, he has incredible athleticism and speed for a 6-foot-5, 288-pound defensive lineman (Gilbert posted a 4.87-second time in the 40 at the Combine, tied for ninth among d-linemen). Gilbert is a projected second- or third-round pick who can play at end or tackle in the 4-3 defense, but also projects as a 3-4 defensive end --thus Ryan's presence in San Jose. - San Francisco Chronicle *03/06/09* - Versatility at end position: Jarron Gilbert, San Jose State, 6-5, 288: He has gained an odd claim to fame for a YouTube video in which he showcases his athleticism by jumping out of the shallow end of a swimming pool in one motion. He was the 2008 Western Athletic Conference co-defensive player of the year after making 22 tackles for loss. The question isn't whether Gilbert can play, but at which position to utilize his unique combination of size and athletic ability. He is the son of former New Orleans Saints offensive tackle Daren Gilbert.

    This is a guy that several mock drafts have him going to the Cowboys. There seems to be lot of talent at the OLB/DE area that is being profiled. The struggle for me is that a lot of the sources are at odds as to which of these players would work well in a 3-4 D. Is this guy good value at 51?

    At #51 he is, but his measurables haven't translated to the field as much as you'd like. He's a bit of a project but some team will fall in love with him and take him early.

    Any chance he could play OLB in 34?

    Or is he strictly a DE in a 34 type defense?

    He's even got about the same height as Kruger and I think he's a bit faster than Kruger as well.

    Tyson Jackson is going to go high, and Gilbert won't be far behind. He's the number 2 five technique DE in the draft. With all the new 3-4 teams, he will be drafted higher than he should be, imo.
