NFL Market Share Production

marcus-gilchrist

Metric Recommendation:  Gilchrist is a cornerback to safety convert who has qualities to benefit him as a strong safety, but his lack of elite coverage production makes him good not great. He has good athleticism and would be a decent corner if not for the transition he had at the midpoint of his career. I would consider Marcus a starting strong safety who will give you average production going forward. His biggest positive is solo tackling ability, an underrated trait amongst most safeties, but the safeties get paid for their ability to disrupt the pass.

Something Gilchrist hasn’t proven to be elite at in the NFL or in college football.
