Countdown to kickoff: #78 Marcus Gilbert

#76 Player/Hometown/High School: Marcus Gilbert Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas
Hgt/Wgt: 6-foot-5, 320-lb Position: Offensive line Year: JR
Fall Depth Chart Projection: 1st team right tackle

Spring Review: Although the line was devastated by injuries over the spring, Gilbert was one of the few constants. He was the starter at right tackle an overwhelming majority of the time. At times he struggled against speed rushers to the outside, but overall he might have been the second best performer on the line over the spring (behind only Sam Robey).

Fall Projection: Gilbert's experience, though limited, should help offset the loss of Jason Watkins on the right hand side. Actually, Gilbert may be a better overall prospect. He's got good size and moves well enough to be a factor on the outside.

Others who wore the number: Tavares Washington (2003-05), Chad Tidwell (2000-02), Michael Younkin (1996-99), Zach Piller (1995), Keith McMahon (1994), Ryan Taylor (1990-93), Brad Hatcher (1986-89), Thomas Lockett (1985), Mark Spicer (1984), Tony Hensley (1983), Glenn Meyers (1981), Greg Barrow (1979-80), Robert Weaver (1979), Jimmie Clark (1978), Mike Guido (1977), George Sullivan (1975-76), Paul Parker (1972-74), David Peek (1971), Jim Kiley (1968-70), Paige Cutcliffe (1967) and Dennis Murphy (1962-64)

Vote: In 2009 Gilbert will...
