The cornerback position should be one of the top priorities for the Buffalo Bills in next week’s NFL Draft with Tre’Davious White working back from an ACL injury and Levi Wallace leaving in free agency. This leaves Dane Jackson and likely Cam Lewis as the starting outside cornerbacks heading into the season currently on the roster.

One player that could be a good fit for this team is former Clemson Tiger cornerback Andrew Booth, who the Bills reportedly had a Top 30 visit with. Let’s take a closer look at the player and how he might fit on this defense.


Height: 6’0″

Weight: 194 pounds

Arms: 31 1/2″

Hands: 9 3/8″

Andrew Booth was a starter for Clemson for the past two seasons and in 21 games had 68 total tackles, six tackles for a loss, one sack, five interceptions and nine passes defended.

NFL.com Scouting Report by Lance Zierlein

"A press/zone combo corner with good size and length, Booth plays with an urgent, competitive nature. He has the strength, balance and foot agility to press and slow the release. He has limited starting experience, though. He will need more development to prevent route specialists from manipulating his feet and hips. Booth has the ball-tracking and play strength to find and maintain top-dog positioning through catch tries. He’s more effective in off coverage underneath than tight man. He needs to play more football, but his ball-hawking instincts, burst to close and toughness in run support will be very appealing for zone teams looking for an upgrade at cornerback."

How Andrew Booth fits with the Buffalo Bills

There are a number of qualities with Andrew Booth that stand out that the Buffalo Bills look for at the position. Over the years, the Buffalo Bills have drafted cornerbacks who are good tacklers and Andrew Booth certainly excels there.

The other reason that Andrew Booth would be a good fit is that he attacks the football in the air and can make quarterbacks pay when they make mistakes with pass breakups and interceptions. With Tre’Davious White on the other side of the field, teams are likely going to challenge Andrew Booth so adding a player who can force interceptions could be a great addition to this defense.
