In National Football Post's 6.0 2012 NFL Mock Draft, Wes Bunting has the New York Giants selecting South Carolina cornerback Stephon Gilmore (via NFP) with the 32nd pick of the First Round.
Bunting says about the Gilmore selection:
Getting a tall, physical defensive back who displays a natural feel in zone and can go get the football makes some sense for the Giants at the back end of round one.
The cornerack selection is a little unusual in the sense that most mock drafts have New York selecting a defensive player in the first round, but not a defensive back.
Here's a look at Gilmore's South Carolina career. Last season, Gilmore had 46 tackles (35 solo), four interceptions (led the team), one sack, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one blocked kick. For his college career, Gilmore had 176 tackles (136 solo), 7 sacks, 4 forced fumbles (4 recoveries) and 7 interceptions.
