Buffalo Bills: 53-man roster projections halfway through preseason
Tre’Davious White, Micah Hyde, Jordan Poyer, Levi Wallace, Taron Johnson, Siran Neal, Kevin Johnson, Captain Munnerlyn, Kurt Coleman, Jaquan Johnson
Cut: Cam Lewis, Lafayette Pitts, Ryan Lewis, Denzel Rice, Abraham Wallace
The strength of this defense has to be the Buffalo Bills’ secondary as they are deep at every position. The starting cornerbacks of Tre’Davious White and Levi Wallace are backed up by Kevin Johnson, who was a former first round pick, and has played well to this point of the preseason.
At nickel, Taron Johnson returns to the same role he has last year but is backed up by Siran Neal, who can play safety, and a veteran in Captain Munnerlyn, who can also play outside if necessary. The experience Munnerlyn brings to the nickel position could be invaluable to Johnson and Neal in terms of preparation and learning the role.
The safety position has Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer, arguably one of the best safety combos in the NFL, but have Kurt Coleman backing them up. Coleman has experience playing both positions in Sean McDermott’s defense.
