Justin Glibert, Corner Back, Oklahoma State

The 6’0, 200 pound corner back from Oklahoma State is rated as the second best prospect at his position this draft- according to NFLDraftscout.com.

He ran a 4.52 forty and is said to be one of the most elusive ball carriers in the country- meaning if this kid gets the ball in his hands, watch-out! Gilbert lead the Big 12 last season with six interceptions and was named as a first team All-American Corner to CBSSports.com. He can also contribute on special teams, having returned kicks six times for touchdowns through out his career in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

With McCluster on the fence, Gilbert might be a guy who could fill two voids for the Chiefs in one pick. The only downside to Gilbert is he is considered a very raw talent for his position. He needs to work on technique to really take off at the next level against NFL receivers, something I have faith that Emmit Thomas could teach.
