Justin Gilbert the Browns first round pick has been a problem for the team since being drafted. If it is not for the poor player it is for the maturity. Gilbert has been passed by fourth round pick Pierre Desir on the depth chart, but his recent injury has allowed Gilbert to get some playing time.
This week Gilbert allowed 3 receptions for 40 yards, but also allowed what should have been a long touchdown to Pierre Garcon go after he dropped a sure fire touchdown. Well after his first preseason game of 2015, Gilbert told reporters his performance was “Flawless”.
Browns coach Mike Pettine felt differently about Gilbert’s performance.
“I wouldn’t say I’m concerned at this point,” Pettine said, according to The Chronicle-Telegram. “This is why we have training camp. He’s got things that he’s got to work on and he’ll get his grade sheet tomorrow and hopefully the mistakes that he made, be able to lock them in and not make them again.
“But he’s a guy that we want to have him be a part of what we’re doing and we’re coaching him hard. Hopefully he’ll respond.”
Pettine did see some positive things in studying Gilbert’s play against Washington.
“There were some things he needs to work on,” Pettine said. “But I thought the two plays in the red zone was good coverage (incompletions on fade routes), when he got up and pressed. But it’ll be good teaching film for Justin.”
