That success has Gilbert feeling optimistic about his prospects in a 3-4 scheme.
"I felt good playing [end and tackle]," he said. "I've never played in a 3-4 system before but I feel I could be successful there."

"Yeah, every single scout pretty much has [asked me about it]," he said of the clip. "That's been the most popular topic in all of my interviews."
Gilbert has also helped himself during pre-draft workouts. At the NFL Combine, he recorded an impressive wingspan (36.75 inches) and showed good strength on the bench press (28 repetitions). He ran a respectable 4.87 in the 40-yard dash.
Prior to the Combine, he boosted his stock with an impressive performance at the East-West Shrine game.
"It really rose my stock," said Gilbert of the Shrine game. "It showed people I could play at the next level. I believe it did. I felt successful that week at the East-West game and hopefully the scouts will see it that way, that it was a good week."
Gilbert was prepared for all the pre-draft workouts. He was able to garner advice from his father, Daren Gilbert, who was an offensive tackle for the New Orleans Saints.
Daren Gilbert was drafted by Bum Phillips, the father of Wade Phillips, who just happens to be the man who installed San Diego's current 3-4 defensive system.
"Having a dad that played in the NFL is really helpful, especially when he's around your life," Jarron Gilbert said. "He gave me a lot of guidance and has kept me level-headed through this whole process."
Gilbert is projected to be a second-round draft pick, meaning San Diego would have to trade to acquire him or hope he falls to the third round. He would compete for immediate playing time at defensive end, helping fill the void created by the defection of Igor Olshansky to the Dallas Cowboys.
