They wouldn't sit either of them to play a rookie. The best you'd see out of Gilbert is as a return man and an understudy to Peanut getting ready to take over next year. I think the kid has real talent but he's just not an immediate need in one. A Safety might be a better but IMHO neither will have the impact of a great pass rusher. The better the rush the less talent you need in the defensive backfield. I wouldn't be completely shocked if they did take a Safety but I would still take a pass rusher over one if I could get a kid with some ability to challenge Conte later in the draft. You won't get a pass rushing penetrating DT like Donald later in the draft. Some would have him ranked as a top five guy if he was 10lb heavier and inch taller. If he's there he should be the BPA. I'd be willing to bet Gilbert won't make it that far and DaQuan Jones is no 3 tech. He's a 320lb run stuffer you'd use as a NT. I'd be disappointed if they took him. Read his scouting report and numbers from the Combine. He's slower than molasses in January, full second under Donalds time, not as strong, 10 less reps in the bench, and has few if any pass rush potential other than as a bull rusher. He's Nix's size without Nix's talent and I think even the 2nd round may be to high for him unless somebody was desperate for a NT. I'm not saying he's a bad ball player but he doesn't have what you'd look for in a 4-3 DT. At 320 pounds he's a NT and if he drops 15-20lbs he's probably a 5 tech DE in a 3-4. I think Adam Hoge is off base here. Teams are gonna throw up a lot of smoke screens now and a lot of those will come from local media guys like Hoge. It's best to keep the other guys guessing now. Most of the draftniks say Donald so this adds some doubt.

Weight 9 5/8" Hands More Combine Video Overview 2013: First-team All-Big Ten selection after starting in all 12 games. Led team with 11.5 tackles for loss. 2012: Started first 11 games. 2011: Played in all 12 games. 2010: Did not play in first four game to preserve possible redshirt. Played defensive tackle and defensive end. Analysis Strengths Big body -- looks the part. Fires off the snap and engages quickly. Is difficult to displace and has a strong upper body. Able to control blocks and locate the ball. Plays with a load in his hands -- presses blockers, extends and discards. Generates a strong bull rush and collapses the pocket. Is athletic and redirects well for a big man. Flashes disruptive ability and dominates at times, creating production for teammates. Scheme versatile. Has upside. Team captain. Weaknesses Takes some plays off and occasionally loafs on plays away from him. Could stand to develop counters and pass-rush moves. Does not threaten the edges. Does not accelerate off blocks and closing burst is just average. Can do a better job protecting his legs. Weight and conditioning have fluctuated. Bottom Line Big, strong-bodied interior force who shed weight and improved his stamina as a senior, displaying NFL-caliber physicality in the trenches. Has been inconsistent in the past, but if the light has come on, Jones' combination of size, power and movement enables him to play as a 4-3 one-technique or 3-4 five-technique.
