Stephon Gilmore: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)The Bills have had a fantastic defense all season, but they'll be playing a bit shorthanded in the season finale against the Pats. Gilmore will finish his sophomore season with 46 tackles, six passes defensed, and three interceptions - not bad IDP numbers for a corner. Gilmore gets beaten in coverage once in a while, but he's a fairly solid corner and looks like he'll be able to man the starting position for years to come.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Gilmore established himself as the Bills' top corner as a rookie last season, recording 61 tackles (52 solo), 16 passes defensed, three forced fumbles and one interception.
The No. 10 pick in the 2012 draft, the rookie will have a legitimate chance to start in his first season. The two starting CB spots are thought to be between Gilmore, Aaron Williams, Terrence McGee, and Leodis McKelvin, though the first two are thought to be the early favorites. Gilmore isn't incredibly quick and doesn't have speedy hips, but his size and straightaway speed rate really high and he plays a physical game the Bills should be able to utilize for years.
