Justin Gilbert (CB) - Cleveland Browns - Gilbert hasn't done anything to improve on his status as a struggling second year corner in the NFL. The former first round pick would likely be on the chopping block if it weren't for his lofty selection in last year's draft. The Browns are hoping for more consistency out of Gilbert this season and in general. He's going to make the roster but this season is likely the end of the leash for the former Oklahoma State star.
Tyler Patmon (CB) - Dallas Cowboys - The Cowboys lost Pro Bowl corner Orlando Scandrick to a torn ACL (out for the season), which puts Patmon squarely in line for a boat load of playing time as the "slot" corner. He played solid in the team's third preseason game Saturday, recording a solo tackle and not giving up any big plays. It was his first start in replace of Scandrick, Oklahoma State south has another former Poke starter for the 2015 season.This is Patmon's chance to capitalize on a big opportunity.
Perrish Cox (CB) - Tennessee Titans - In his first preseason as a Titan, Cox is showing why the front office brought him in. He's posted two interceptions in three games, including one that went for a touchdown. Cox is locked in as a starter and may be able to put together a Pro Bowl year for a defense void of leadership and star power.
Kendall Hunter (RB) - San Francisco 49ers - Hunter compiled seven carries for 15 yards on Saturday when the 49ers took on the Denver Broncos in the teams third preseason game. However, it was his play in the joint practices leading up to the game that had head coach Jim Tomsula talking.
"Wasn’t he moving around really well?" Tomsula said. "You all could see him move and have that burst. I feel really good for Kendall. We wanted to get to this point where we could give him a little bit more reps and get him moving here."
