No. 10 Buffalo Bills: CB Stephon Gilmore, South Carolina –- Some evaluators think Gilmore is the best cornerback prospect in the draft. He was a rare true freshman starter for the Gamecocks, and had 52 tackles, five tackles for loss, two sacks, and nine passes defended his first year.

Comment: The Bills have built a supreme defensive line, and now they’re building the back end. Not bad for a team that ranked 30th in points allowed in 2011.
