Scouting Report on Marcus Gilchrist

by Mike Farrell - 06/20/2006
Gilchrist is a solid cover corner and a special teams demon. His quickness and ability to change direction make him one of the most dangerous return men in the country and he can turn and run with almost any receiver. Gilchrist has good speed and reads the receivers well and his ball skills are superb. He baits the quarterback often, allowing what appears to be separation between himself and the wide receiver, only to close for the interception. Once he has the ball in his hands, he’s a threat to score from anywhere. Gilchrist needs to get stronger and fill out his frame and he’s adequate in run support but needs to play more physical.
