Grading the Cleveland Browns 2014 draft class

Grading the Cleveland Browns 2014 draft class Round 1: (8) Justin Gilbert CB – Oklahoma State Instead of picking for need or even for best player available, the Browns used their first of two first round picks, on corner Justin Gilbert. Gilbert underperformed, as he became one of the biggest rookie disappointments in 2014. He only started two games last season, totaling 29 tackles...

Justin Gilbert working out with Joe Haden

Through all of the distractions that the Cleveland Browns had to endure with regard to quarterback Johnny Manziel, it was fellow first-rounder Justin Gilbert who drew the ire of his veteran teammates.

We know all about Johnny Manziel’s off-field issues and the fact that he’s currently residing in an alcohol rehabilitation facility.

Justin Gilbert on returning kicks: ‘It’s finger lickin good’

Justin Gilbert's propensity for shutting down opposing receivers made him the No. 8 overall pick in last month's draft. But it's the art of returning kicks that really wets the cornerback's whistle. "There is nothing like taking one to the house," Gilbert said, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "I tell a couple of my teammates, 'It's like your Mama's cooking, it's finger lickin good...

Justin Gilbert is unfamiliar with Greg Little

Not real newsworthy, but I was entertained by what transpired on the Internet last night with Greg Little and new Browns corner Justin Gilbert. Of course you all know that Greg Little was released by the Browns and didn’t make it through waivers.
