5) Shane Skov/ Cyril Richardson
7) Colt Lyerla/ Randell Johnson

The only thing that worries me about gilmore is that he's a late riser, and you can never be to cautious of a late riser.

I also listened to this interview and although I try not to jump to conclusions, Nix's tone changed when he talked about Gilmore vs when he talked about Kirkpatrick. It really did sound like if he's there, he is the pick.
I like Gilmore as well and would not mind if that is the direction goed

Thanks OP ... I've thought it would likely be CB for awhile, just seems that talent available at CB is greater than WR or LB, and it's a very real need. If it's really about a shutdown (over zone) that seems to indicate Gilmore over Kirkpatrick.

Mark Asper: "He'd come smashing in there and make a big play and he has no emotion. He just goes back to the defensive huddle, and we had to trash talk for him. Our big line was 'Kiko Smash.' "#TheLegendOfKikoAlonzo
I think with Nix's philosophy of BPA, you can't lock into a player or even a position Nix wants. I think Nix himself doesn't even know who he is going to pick. The only thing we know from this interview is that he likes at least 10 players enough to draft at 10. I could see Gilmore but I could also see Kirkpatrick, Floyd, Jonathan Martin, Claiborne, Blackmon and Kalil.
The Bills sadly are not traders of picks. But if they were I would hope they could do it this year. It isn't to say there isn't talent there worth the 10th pick. It is to say that there is enough talent at a lot of positions we can use later, AND having an additional first next year would be HUGE.
So, if there were ever a year to trade out for picks, IMO it is this year. Collect the OL depth we so desparately need, Get the CBs we need, and a WR, All while garnering another pick next year.
If Fitz does not pan out well this year (I really hope he does) then hacing that extra first will be a god send.
