INDIANAPOLIS -- You can prepare for the combine interviews all you want. You can work on your honesty, your enthusiasm, your smile. But when meeting with teams for prospective employment or the media, you simply can't prepare for everything.
Gilbert rattled off a few CBs he likes. Someone asked him about Aqib Talib, he said, "I don't know who that is."— Dave Birkett (@davebirkett) February 23, 2014
Three of four CBSSports.com mock drafters predict Gilbert will land with the Bengals as the No. 24 overall pick, and it likely will be a battle between Gilbert and Michigan State's Darqueze Dennard to see which cornerback will be the first to come off the draft board.
Talib, meanwhile, likely will test free agency.
Hopefully, one day these two can meet. Unfortunately, Talib will probably have to be the one to introduce himself.
