Bills help secondary with CB Gilmore
By James Walker
After much speculation, the Buffalo Bills drafted a player not many had on their radar, taking South Carolina cornerback Stephon Gilmore with the No. 10 overall pick.
Gilmore should immediately help Buffalo's inconsistent pass defense. He is a solid all-around corner who can make plays, force turnovers and tackle against the run.
Buffalo continues to pump resources into its revamped 4-3 defense this offseason. The Bills spent a majority of their free-agency dollars on starting defensive ends Mario Williams and Mark Anderson.
The Bills should have a much-improved pass rush. And with Gilmore, they now have someone who can make plays on the back end.
