IMO, if Joseph walks, I think RaShede will be heavy on their radar. Just my opinion.
Doesn't Dennard's overall size/athleticism scare you a bit though?
He doesn't come off as an elite athlete to me and if I'm picking a corner at #12 -- I want an elite athlete that will hold up both strength/speed wise to the NFL.
Also feel like Dennard does a lot of bumping/holding after 5 yeards that will get called in NFL.
I'm just basing my opinion on highlights of both players -- didn't see them live.
Gilbert is flashier IMO. He will look a lot better in a highlight I bet because he makes big plays returning the ball as well as coming up with INT's and making something happen when he picks it off. He is bigger height wise for sure. I am not sure off the top of my head how the compare in the other measurables.
Both are very nice prospects I think and would be happy with either guy

DON'T LEAVE LINVAL!!
He does NOT seem to like to tackle - he does tackle but it really doesn't stand out.
I will say -- he looks very at ease covering the go route & or long ball --- he also looks very solid/aggressive in staying with recievers on short crossing routes --- one of our issues as a defense. He's a dynamic athlete -- when he gets his hands on the ball he's thinking one thing (end zone).
I'm liking the idea of corner more and more in the 1st --- hopefully we get enough done in free agency that we can be bolster the defense early in the draft.
