Source: Bills very high on Mark Barron, Stephon Gilmore

Sitting just two days before the start of the 2012 NFL Draft, mock drafts have been all over the board with what the Buffalo Bills will do with the tenth overall selection on Thursday night.

There's a wildcard in the equation that's gaining some steam, and could even be thought of as a favorite at this point.

According to a league source, the Buffalo Bills are extremely interested in Alabama safety Mark Barron, along with South Carolina cornerback Stephon Gilmore as candidates for the tenth overall selection.

The source, speaking on the condition of anonymity, says the Bills view Barron as a "playmaker" and a "day-one starter" for their defensive scheme. There is also some interest from the Bills in Boston College linebacker Luke Kuechly, but the buzz continues to surround Barron's name.

At this point in time, the tenth overall selection will likely be one of the two players from the SEC, unless a major name at a position of need were to fall to the tenth overall selection.
