I voted that Davis will get drafted before Gilbert. I feel like before last season, it would have been the other way around. Davis really stood out last year, but with Gilbert getting moved around, he somewhat faded unfortunately.

Gilbert to make official predraft visit to Pittsburgh.

 

Draft Scout has Gilbert projected as a 5th round pick but given his impressive workouts, his stock could be on the rise. He’s the second linebacker reported to have a visit scheduled, joining TCU’s Ben Banogu. In Pittsburgh, Banogu would play on the edge while Gilbert would slide in at the Mack linebacker spot.

 

Note: I’m not sure the article is correct in suggesting hat Gilbert counts against the Steelers 30 visits. In the past UA visits have been considered local. Although most teams don’t even use all their official visits.

Can we start calling the football portion of the university Defensive or Linebacker U?

Akron had 12 prospects at the Browns regional pro day. The most of any school.

 

Would love to see some of them get a shot in Cleveland.

While traveling this past weekend one of the Sirius NFL channels did a show on draft sleepers. Gilbert was mentioned. One of the two analysts said his NFL position may be as an in-box safety. I suppose his forty time is adequate?

This guy is just a twitter draft guy, but his takes are usually well thought out and rational.

Jamal has 3,438 followers right now, Ulysees Gilbert has 1,145. I'm interested to see how it goes up after they get drafted. 🤩🤯

Normally I would partially laugh at the idea of the Zips participating in celebrating Day 3 of the Draft, but with John Dorsey as GM of the Browns, Day 3 matters. Plus, it gives Arth and the program some exposure.

K Brown article

Zips haven't had 2 players drafted in the same draft. Let alone 3 right?!

 

Yet another reason for me to shake my head, ponder the mediocrity and utter to myself "what the hell?"

The Browns and NFL Draft: Whispers, trade partners and dot-connecting

 

Quote

After asking around on the pro day circuit and over the last couple of weeks, I learned lots of scouts see Toledo wide receiver Diontae Johnson and Akron edge rusher Jamal Davis as third-day picks who could become keepers.

Quote

Most teams see Davis as a developmental 3-4 outside linebacker, but assuming the Browns keep multiple third-day picks they could find themselves looking for designated pass-rushers and utility players at every level of the defense.

I'm assuming that the Browns taking a LB in the third means they probably won't go after Gilbert. Unless he's undrafted. Still am a bit worried Pittsburgh might pick him. Although they also took a LB but don't think they are as solid at the position as Cleveland.

The Steelers currently own the 122, 141, 175, 192, 207 and 219 picks in the draft. They play the 3-4 (linebackers), and in my opinion are not done taking linebackers in this draft. They love MAC players (already selecting one this year). The Steelers had Ulysees in for a pre-draft visit, and have a track record of taking players they meet with.  “It was amazing, honestly. The Steelers were my favorite team growing up, so to meet everybody and meet Tomlin and just be around there — it was a blessing. I really enjoyed it.” --UG

 

Edit: The Steelers draft another MAC guy at 175, Northern Illinois, Sutton Smith. Will move to ILB. Probably dismisses Ulysees landing in the Burg. Good luck to him wherever he goes!

Looks like NFL cameras screwed the announcement up and it wasn't showed. Gotta be kidding me.

They have been showing some of them a while after the pick was actually made so it may still be shown.

Muncie had some Testicle Tech players for their pick.  Would’ve been cool if they mentioned the college team for Akron’s pick.

Or the coach. Maybe the Browns will draft a Zip, and they go back to coach.
