All that talk about switching Arik Gilbert from tight end to wide receiver? Eh, who cares.
… Too fast for a linebacker and too physical for a corner, Gilbert lined in as a slot wide receiver more than any other position last year for the Tigers (46 percent of snaps). In the slot, Gilbert caught 17 passes on 27 targets for 156 yards, including three explosive plays, on an average depth of target of 8.6 yards.
Call him whatever you like. Whenever I see him in a formation with Washington, I suspect I’ll be enjoying what’s coming.
