Bills CB Stephon Gilmore is still working his way back from an offseason procedure, but Buffalo’s starting cornerback is among the names on a Top 25 list of breakout players for 2014.
Big things were expected from Gilmore in 2013, but a broken wrist suffered in the preseason dramatically hampered his impact on the Bills fortunes last season. CBSSports.com’s Pete Prisco has him on his list for 2014. Here’s what he wrote.
Stephon Gilmore, CB, Buffalo Bills — I thought he would be a breakout player last season, but he missed time with a wrist injury. When he played, he still flashed big-time ability. I think this is his year to make a big step toward being on the league’s better corners.
It wasn’t until the last month of the season that Gilmore began to return to full form as a lockdown cornerback. Hopefully he and Leodis McKelvin can stay healthy for most if not all of the 2014 campaign.
