Stephon Gilmore A True Option

This corner is being seen more and more as a top 10 pick, and with the need at corner, and it being such a premium position in the NFL, he is a very likely candidate to be picked up at #9. I used to be a Coples guy, but with all the negative things coming out about him, with very little positive, I think Gilmore would be a solid contributor, while also being the safest pick. It would really help our sad secondary, and get us some takeaways.

Here is a link citing how many analysts and teams talk about how they think he is top 10 material

I think the guy seems to have his head on straight, with some serious athletic ability.

It is also good to note, this guy is a returner as well. He helps us on multiple fronts. The more I read about this guy and watch him in games, the more I like him.

Here is yet another article talking about how premium CB's are becoming in the league and how Gilmore has , seemingly, surpassed Kirkpatrick. http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/7442/stephon-gilmore

6 foot tall with jumping ability and speed... Draft him and feel great. He is also a great kid with tackling ability.

He gets a little off with his technique but he is coming out early and we do hopefully have Hogan to take the 2spot and Gilmore can fill in at FS nickleback.

Our secondary would be actually really good all of the sudden...Butler/Munnerlyn as a no.4...special teams has great spped and matchup ability for heavy passing sets.

If he's picked at #9, so be it. Just don't want Poe..

jt- not happy bc it would be a slight reach or do you think he would not be a good player?

-for me it is not ideal at 9...but trading down getting and gaining a pick would make it a great pick IMO.

hes a starter, Jerel Worthy in the second, call it a day.

Gilmore is also a leader, something I wouldn't mind having more of on defense.
