Who will win the starting cornerback job opposite Tre'Davious White?

There is no question that the number one position battle on the defensive side of the ball has to be middle linebacker. However, the battle for that second cornerback spot might be a close second that the Buffalo Bills will need to figure out during training camp.

The return of Tre'Davious White makes this position even more competitive because it will now consist of Dane Jackson, Kaiir Elam, and Christian Benford. These three all had multiple starts last season but now they will be battling for just one spot.

The hope would be that Kaiir Elam is the one who can earn that spot as he was last year's first round pick. The former Florida Gators cornerback has the highest ceiling among the three and if he does play at that level, along with Tre'Davious White rebounding, could give the Bills one of the top cornerback duos in the NFL.

Even though Elam was a first round pick, he won't be handed the starting job and Dane Jackson and Christian Benford are going to make this a tough training camp battle for all involved.
