PFW – CB Gilmore is rising up the charts Dan Leberfeld

With Darrelle Revis wanting more money again and a potential holdout at some point according to ESPN New York, might the Jets protect themselves by picking a corner early?

Also remember, two guys who provided depth for them last year, Marquice Cole and Donald Strickland, are no longer with the team. And their nickel back, Kyle Wilson, is a little inconsistent.

An unnamed scout, told Pro Football Weekly that South Carolina cornerback Stephon Gilmore is shooting up the charts – “Everyone says (South Carolina CB) Stephon Gilmore is rising after his workout. That is what I am hearing on the street. He is a big corner, and everyone is going big now. The value is in the late first. I’ve heard teams talking about him in the top 10.”
