2012 NFL Draft Grades: Stephon Gilmore Earns Bills An A-Minus

The first round of the 2012 NFL Draft was interesting not just for the Buffalo Bills - who selected South Carolina cornerback Stephon Gilmore with the No. 10 overall pick - but for the Bills' divisional rivals, as well. The Miami Dolphins (QB Ryan Tannehill), New York Jets (DL Quinton Coples) and New England Patriots (DE Chandler Jones, LB Dont'a Hightower) all made big, discussion-worthy moves as well.

Four SB Nation video folks - Matt Ufford, Dan Rubenstein, Brad Wells and David Fucillo - broke down the division's moves last night. Rubenstein (Grantland), who graded the Bills' pick of Gilmore, handed out an A-minus for the effort, talking up the same qualities that GM Buddy Nix talked up last night. New England got an unsurprisingly good grade for their two picks, while the guys were not nearly as high on what Miami and New York did. You can view the full video below for yourself, and you can check out the rest of the group's divisional breakdowns at this link.
