The San Diego Chargers have selected Marcus Gilchrist, CB from Clemson with the 50th overall selection in the 2011 NFL Draft.
MARCUS GILCHRIST PROFILE
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.
