Round 4, Pick 128: Josh Jobe, CB (Alabama)

In the fourth round, the Buffalo Bills stay on the defensive side of the ball with the selection of Josh Jobe from the University of Alabama. The cornerback position is one that has been an annual need for the Bills and may become a bigger need if they don’t re-sign Levi Wallace.

Even if Wallace returns, in a league where it is so pass-heavy it isn’t a bad idea to have great depth here. When looking at the cornerback still on the board, there was something in the scouting report on The Draft Network and why Jobe was the selection:

"An A+ addition to the run game, he brings a linebacker’s attitude in run support. An excellent tackler, he throws his weight around well and under control when executing in run support. Could be graded as a safety on some teams’ boards due to his physicality levels and special teams experience. He’s a frequent presence and tackle-maker on special teams, which will help his pre-draft profile."

The Buffalo Bills value cornerbacks who are not afraid to step up in run support and this is something that Jobe does well. He also would be a big addition on special teams, which also could see some changes if someone like Siran Neal is not re-signed.
