What do you guys think of gilmore so far this year? personally i like the kid and think hes playing well this year but he needs to cause a few more turnovers. (interceptions)

Corner is a tough position for rookies. I think he's doing pretty well for being our #1, and I expect him to get better with time.

I think we need another first round CB.

Obviously a shut down corner. Rookie of the year?

Overall, I've been happy with Gilmore. Playing the CB position is totally different from college to the NFL so some mistakes are to be expected. I like that he is often around the ball and he definitely tackles well for a CB. He is very physical (which I like to see) but he does need to learn how to use his physicality without drawing penalties and I expect that will come with more time and experience in the league. So far, so good.

Not living up to his draft position.

He is learning fast and right now he is the CB on the team.

I think he is too physical with WRs and will draw a lot of penalties.  He is often lost at times and looks into the backfield too much, but as a rookie that is expected I guess.

Overall I think we would have been better drafting someone else, or trading down.

I keep being very encouraged by his play week after week and thought he had a very good game today.  He's improving on run coverage too.  Since he typically covers the no. 1s he has had more than his fair share of plays and exposure- nothing like trial by fire- and because of it he is developing quickly.
look for him to be a superstar in a year or two.

Made a nice play to force a fumble today.  PI was the end of the game, but i had 0 faith in a comeback anyway

Has shown enoughto believe that he will be a pretty decent player in the future.
But he needs to stop mugging wide receivers or he will be a magnet for pass interference.
Justin Rogers on the other hand can't cover anyone.

Rookie, thrown into the fire.  He is doing all one could expect of him, especially with the garbage being thrown out there at LB.

He has really grown on me.  I would still have traded the pick that netted him, our entire 2012 draft (gambling, I know, because I do like Cordy Glenn) and many future picks to get RGIII, but that is not Gilmore's fault.

He's very frustrating to watch sometimes. He definitely has room for growth, but I see potential in him. I think McKelvin is our best corner right now (can't believe I actually said that)
