Starters: Tre’Davious White, Dane Jackson, Taron Johnson (nickel)

Backups: Siran Neal, Cam Lewis, Nick McCloud, Olaijah Griffin, Tim Harris

As it stands now, the depth chart at the cornerback position is pretty easy to predict with Tre’Davious White as the top cornerback, Dane Jackson replacing Levi Wallace on the other side and Taron Johnson remaining as the team’s starting nickel corner.

However, this is one position that is almost guaranteed to look different by the start of the regular season. There are questions about whether or not White will be able to play to start the season as he works his way back from an ACL injury.

Also, the fact that the Buffalo Bills don’t have many roster needs, there is a high certainty that Buffalo drafts a cornerback early that could compete with Dane Jackson for that second cornerback position. This could end up being the starting cornerbacks by the end of the season but right now there are too many questions about availability and who might be added.
