Jimmie Gilbert is officially a Buff! Read more about him from his bio at

Here are some thoughts from Wescott Eberts at the RedBull 7-on-7 event this summer:

Jimmie Gilbert, 2013 A&M Consolidated outside linebacker -- One of the most physically impressive prospects at the event at 6'4" and a bit over 200 pounds, Gilbert showed off his ability to use his backpedal to drop into coverage on one early interception. A good athlete, the Consolidated defender often looked like he had an extra gear that he rarely revealed, but did break well on one short pass that would have gone for an interception had his hands not let him down.

With the frame to eventually reach 240 or more pounds, Gilbert is a bit of a tweener, but has the skillset to excel in a 3-4 defense.

You can check out his highlights here. Welcome aboard, Jimmie!
