Inside The Bills

Gilmore a popular breakout choice

Posted by Chris Brown on July 21, 2013 – 10:06 am

Today we profiled the men on Buffalo’s roster that are most likely to become playmakers on defense this season. Stephon Gilmore was one of them and apparently our thoughts on Buffalobills.com were echoed on NFL.com.

NFL.com listed Gilmore as their No. 12 breakout player for 2013. Here’s what they wrote.

 

Gilmore, the No. 10 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, led the Bills in defensive snaps last season by a good margin, missing fewer than two snaps per game. After some early missteps, he closed the season very strong. His problems are correctable and his strengths are difficult to find in a young cornerback. Gilmore is a physical cornerback with great coverage skills.
