Notes:
An All-American First-Team honoree by the American Football Coaches Association as a receiver in 2009...A First-team pick as an all-purpose back by The NFL Draft Report as a senior...In both 2009 and 2008, Gilyard was a First-Team All-Big East selection and the league's Special Teams Player of the Year...Finished his career as Cincinnati's all-time leader in receptions (204), receiving touchdowns (25), receiving yards (3,003), all-purpose yards (5,904), kickoff returns (93) and kickoff return TDs (4)...He led the Big East and finished second in the country with 2,690 all-purpose yards in 2009...Set a new school mark with 87 catches as senior and ended the season with 1,191 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns...Overcame plenty of obstacles to reach this point, including a tough childhood in an allegedly abusive household...Terrific athlete with adequate height...Quick and explosive...Elusive and a dangerous returner...Reliable hands...Could stand to add some more bulk...Needs to work on route running...Struggles at the line to beat the jam.
