NEW YORK — Stephon Gilmore was all smiles shortly after the Buffalo Bills made him the 10th overall pick in Thursday night’s NFL draft.
In a one-on-one interview on is way to the media interview room, I got in a couple quick questions to the 6-foot-1, 193-pound cornerback from the University of South Carolina.
On whether he’d talked to Bills GM Buddy Nix yet.
“Yeah, I talked to him,” he said. “He’s happy with the decision. I’m happy they picked me and believed in my talent. I’ll just keep working hard, like I’ve always done. It don’t stop here — this is the beginning. So I’m looking forward to it.”
On whether he did board work with the Bills on his pre-draft visit:
“Yeah, I did a lot of board work, and I like how they play. They’ve got some great coaches. They’re an upcoming team. They had a good year last year, so I’m just looking (to be) a piece so they can make more plays this year.”
On whether he knows any of the Bills defenders:
“I don’t know ‘em, but it’s a great feeling, man. It’s a dream come true, and I’m just happy with it.”
