Bengals DB coach Vance Joseph conducted drills for Justin Gilbert at Oklahoma State Pro Day

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Oklahoma State held their Pro Day at the Sherman E. Smith Training Center on Thursday and Cincinnati Bengals defensive backs coach Vance Joseph conducted the drills for the defensive backs.

If you think that the Cincinnati Bengals aren't interested in Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert, you'd be wrong. The question isn't really a matter of interest; rather availability. Gilbert is highly regarded as a first-round prospect that is, depending on the scouting service you trust the most, the top cornerback entering the 2014 NFL draft.

At the very least, Cincinnati is doing their due-diligence.

Oklahoma State held their Pro Day at the Sherman E. Smith Training Center on Thursday and Cincinnati Bengals defensive backs coach Vance Joseph conducted the drills for the defensive backs. All 32 teams were represented, including Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert and head coach Mike Tomlin. Six defensive backs coaches made the trip.

Per Gil Brandt with NFL.com:

Gilbert (6-foot-0, 198 pounds) ran the short shuttle in 4.43 seconds, but slipped during the run. He also posted a three-cone time of 6.91 seconds. He stood on the rest of his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine (he was a top performer in his position group in the 40-yard dash and bench press). Gilbert looked outstanding in the position drills run by Joseph. He was especially adept at backpedaling. Gilbert cemented his position as a top-15 caliber draft pick.
