These are four cornerbacks the Buffalo Bills should target in the 2020 NFL Draft.
The Buffalo Bills entered this offseason with a number of questions at the cornerback position. They had to decide if they were going to bring back the players they had last year with both Levi Wallace and Kevin Johnson set to be free agents? Or was the franchise going to go in another direction?
Did that mean signing one of the top cornerbacks to play opposite Tre’Davious White or using a high pick on a player that was a long term answer? Regardless of what they did, they also had to address a lack of depth that started to show towards the end of last season.
Brandon Beane and this front office got a jump on the position quickly by signing veteran Josh Norman, who was released by the Washington Redskins, prior to the start of free agency. They then were able to bring back Levi Wallace, who was an exclusive rights free agent and was an easy decision to make based on the contract situation.
The Bills weren’t done there and went and brought back E.J. Gaines, who the team traded for in 2017 and after a one year hiatus returned to the team last offseason.
Even with all the moves made to this point, the cornerback position should not be dismissed heading into the 2020 NFL Draft. The moves made takes some urgency off making a move here but if the right player falls to them could be an excellent addition to this defense.
These are four cornerbacks that the Buffalo Bills should target heading into next week’s NFL Draft.
