Justin Gilbert, a cornerback from Oklahoma State, was taken 8th overall tonight by the Cleveland Browns in the 2014 NFL Draft. Cleveland acquired the No. 8 pick from Minnesota after trading the No. 4 pick to Buffalo. Scouts say Gilbert is a tall, long and fast defender with impact potential as a returner. The 6-foot, 202-pounder ran a 4.37 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine, but needs to improve his footwork and technique, according to some observers.
