Stephon Gilmore is already considered one of the better young cornerbacks in the NFL, but CBSSports.com took a look at players under the age of 23 that are among the best in the league. Gilmore made that list and ranked high.

CBSSports.com’s Pete Prisco ranked the top sub-23-year olds in the NFL and Stephon Gilmore ranked seventh overall. Here’s what was written about the Bills top cornerback.

7. Stephon Gilmore, CB, Buffalo Bills – He started 16 games as a rookie and showed some nice coverage skills, even if he had some moments where he struggled. Gilmore is a big corner who has good speed. He lined up on the other team’s top receivers a lot, and did a nice job.

Not exactly glowing, but a very good ranking for Gilmore, who should be noticeably improved this season with a year of NFL experience under his belt.

Only one cornerback under the age of 23 was ranked higher than Gilmore. It was Arizona’s Patrick Peterson, who ranked number one overall.
