Draft Profile: Bio
Arik Gilbert from Marietta High School was rated a 5-star recruit by ESPN and handed a 5-star grade by 247 Sports. After high school, Gilbert opted to join LSU.

In 2020 as a freshman Gilbert saw action in 8 games for the Tigers as he made 35 receptions for a solid 368 yards for an average of 10.5 yards per reception, with 2 TDs, and an excellent QB rating when targeted of 90.8. As a blocker he allowed 4 pressures and no sacks.

After season's end Gilbert transferred to Georgia where as a sophomore in 2022 he played in just 3 games and had just 2 catches for 16 yards for an average of 8.0 yards per catch, with one TD, and an excellent QB rating when targeted of 100.0. In pass protection he gave up no pressures and no sacks.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s coordinated with soft, reliable hands, and Gilbert shows the ability to adjust to balls thrown behind him, as well as a knack for digging out low throws.
  • Gilbert is a natural playmaker, at his best with the ball in his hands.
  • He’s broad-shouldered, long-limbed and a smooth athlete who showed the ability to make plays downfield.
  • Good body control to reach back for the pass behind him. High-points passes and has good vertical, timing and hand-eye coordination in jump-ball situations.
  • Very good speed for the position. Has a second gear to accelerate. Big-play threat.
  • Gilbert has reliable hands and shows the willingness to make catches in traffic over the middle.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • And he’ll need to become a sharper route runner, especially on option routes, to create separation at the intermediate level.
  • He’s largely a non-factor downfield, and Gilbert had issues with drops when running behind a defensive back and tracking the ball. More quick than fast, he won’t always be able to run away from NFL defensive backs.
  • He’ll have to develop a better feel for sitting down against zone coverage.
