Buffalo Bills Continue Building Their Defense

The Buffalo Bills remained pat and stuck with their 10th overall pick in this year’s NFL draft.  After adding two defensive ends in free agency they used their first pick to take a cornerback – Stephon Gilmore of South Carolina.  He’s 6-foot tall and 193 lbs.  There were three trades as other teams moved into position to make their picks before the Bills drafted, but general manager Buddy Nix said they don’t like to give away draft picks and at number 10 they got a player they think can help them immediately.

Coach Chan Gailey said you can never have enough cornerbacks and with Gilmore they got a good one.  Above and beyond upgrading their pass rush, he said a number of defensive positions were a priority and cornerback was one of them.  After selecting Gilmore, Gailey and General Manager Buddy Nix met with the media.

Gilmore is described as a smart player, with blazing speed who makes quick reads, has good timing and a feel to make plays on balls in flight.  Interesting that before going to the University of South Carolina he was the starting quarterback on his high school team.  He spoke with the media a short time after his selection.
