2012 NFL Draft: Gilmore to Bills, Ingram to Chargers
Two South Carolina football players were selected in the first round for the first time in 31 years.
Not since the days of Heisman Trophy winner George Rogers have the South Carolina Gamecocks enjoyed such NFL draft success.
Two Gamecocks were selected in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft on Thursday: Stephon Gilmore was picked 10th by the Buffalo Bills and Melvin Ingram was selected 18th by the San Diego Chargers.
More Gamecocks and Clemson Tigers are expected to go early in the draft, but some have to wait until Friday and Saturday, when the draft continues.
