Cornerback: Tre’Davious White, Josh Norman, EJ Gaines, Taron Johnson, Levi Wallace, Dane Jackson
Cuts: Cam Lewis
The Buffalo Bills’ biggest strength is their secondary, as it is arguably one of the best secondaries in football.
It all starts with All-Pro cornerback Tre’Davious White, White is one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL, and him being so dominant makes the number two corner position that much more important.
Opposing quarterbacks wisely never throw at White, and this puts the pressure on the Bills number-two corner, who will see a lot more balls thrown his way. The number two-corner position will be a battle between Josh Norman, EJ Gaines, and Levi Wallace.
I believe Gaines is the best option, but his injury history could prevent him from winning the job. I expect Norman to be starting week one, and I believe he will have a chip on his shoulder to have a bounce-back year.
Taron Johnson will be the starting nickel corner for Buffalo, and Dane Jackson and Levi Wallace will both provide depth.
This unit is already a great one but has the potential to be a dominant shut down secondary.
Safety: Micah Hyde, Jordan Poyer, Siran Neal, Dean Marlowe
Cuts: Jaquan Johnson
The Bills strong secondary is due in large part to their amazing safety tandem in Hyde and Poyer. Hyde and Poyer compliment each other so perfectly and are great on the back end of Buffalo’s defense.
Siran Neal will get playing time in the slot and as a hybrid linebacker/safety. Neal has shown to be an effective player when he’s on the field and will provide Buffalo with great depth.
Marlowe will show his skills and play mainly on special teams.
