Gilmore pleased to be heading to Buffalo

Former South Pointe High School star and South Carolina defensive back Stephon Gilmore talked this morning about being the 10th pick by Buffalo in last night’s NFL draft.

Gilmore said on the Howard Simon Show on WGR-AM in Buffalo that he was happy and emotional after his name was called. Gilmore says he improved during each of his three years with the Gamecocks.
