Stephon Gilmore A True Option

No. He would not be the best player at #12. He would be the best player at #40. But someone will be dumb enough to take him top 25.
You say that so matter of factly, like it's a universal truth. Stephon Gilmore is NOT the best player at #12!!!
It's an opinion. Not only is it an opinion, it's an opinion largely based on other people's opinions.
I'm not saying if he is or not. I have not idea. I'm not even saying we should take him. All I'm saying is that you shouldn't base your pick on where you are in the draft position, but rather on who you think will best help your team when your turn comes.
