The Buffalo Bills did not fill their most pressing need in Round 1 of the 2012 NFL Draft, but they did fill a need with good value in selecting South Carolina cornerback Stephon Gilmore with the No. 10 overall pick.

Buffalo's two perceived greatest needs entering the draft - wide receiver and left tackle - are well-stocked with solid talent as we await tomorrow evening's second round. At tackle, three players that got attention as possible first-round picks at different points in the pre-draft process remain available: Cordy Glenn of Georgia, Jonathan Martin of Stanford and Mike Adams of Ohio State. The same is true of two wide receivers: Rueben Randle of LSU and Stephen Hill of Georgia Tech.

Add in the presence of several more intriguing prospects - a list that includes Alabama pass rusher Courtney Upshaw, Wisconsin center Peter Konz, Stanford tight end Coby Fleener, Nebraska linebacker Lavonte David and North Alabama cornerback Janoris Jenkins, just to name a select few - and it seems like a good bet that the Bills will have at least one highly intriguing prospect available to them at a position of need with the No. 41 overall pick. Friday night should be fun!
