2014 NFL Combine results: Justin Gilbert led defensive backs in 40 time

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL Combine is a wrap, which means we have results from the defensive backs performances.

The NFL Combine has wrapped up, with the defensive backs doing their various drills earlier today. Rich Eisen will close it out with his own personal 40, which is always good for a laugh or two. But other than that, the important stuff is actually done.

Justin Gilbert put together a 4.37 40 to lead the way among cornerbacks. That combined with an all around solid day will benefit him. He was already looking like a first round pick, but this could be the kind of tie-breaker that bumps him past Darqueze Dennard. I don't say "move up him up the draft board" because as we've already learned, the 49ers focus much more on the film than they do on Combine performances. I have to imagine, a dreadful performance will do more than a great performance, but the team trusts their film work.

The 49ers decision at cornerback will be an interesting one in part because of the kind of wide receiver talent in the division. Percy Harvin showed off his athleticism in the Super Bowl, and while the injury concerns remain, he is still a dynamic presence when he is on the field. Last year, the Rams added Tavon Austin to their receiver corps, so that's potentially four games each season in which the 49ers could be looking at this kind of threat. The 49ers two starting cornerbacks (Tramaine Brock and Chris Culliver or Carlos Rogers, at this point) will get their work in, but that rookie corner could find himself facing serious challenges right off the bat.
