MARCUS GILCHRIST PROFILE

via NFL.com

Gilchrist is an experienced, durable defensive back with good intangibles who could potentially become a starter at corner in a zone-based scheme or make a move to free safety. Either way, will provide a defensive coordinator with depth at multiple spots and some scheme-versatility. Has experience as a kick returner. Real productive defensive back against the run but needs to do a better job handing more physical blockers. Can line up in a variety of places in the secondary and is comfortable playing zone but isn't going to lockdown a No. 1 wide receiver or stick with a play-making slot. Mid-round prospect.

I think AJ lost his job on these pick. The only good pick was the 1st around. I think AJ likes to piss chargers fan off. He is a funny guy!!!!!!

Gilchrist is a great pick. He can play corner and safety. He has great speed and strength. Plus he can contribute on special teams as a gunner, kick returner, and punt returner. Absolute great pick

When will Charger management wake up and get rid of AJ. the Raiders Chiefs and Broncos are really outdoing AJ in competence.

Yeah, Raiders, Chiefs, Broncos draft so well each year...that's why they are consistent LOSERS. Gilcrist is an excellent pick, we'll see how he turns out.
