Who rounds out the depth chart at cornerback for the Buffalo Bills?

The Buffalo Bills have usually only kept six or seven cornerbacks on the 53-man roster and this summer have a number of players that could be in that group. The focus may be on that number two cornerback spot but there are a number of players that will be competing for some of those final spots.

The locks for the 53-man roster at this point look to be Tre'Davious White, Taron Johnson, Kaiir Elam, Christian Benford, and Dane Jackson. This leaves a group of Siran Neal, Cameron Dantzler, Cam Lewis, and seventh round rookie Alex Austin competing for those final one or two spots.

Siran Neal has primarily been a special teams player and hasn't really developed as a defensive back. He did sign an extension last season but could be released if another one of the cornerbacks can provide more on defense while replacing him on special teams.

Cameron Dantzler is an interesting player as he was a former third round pick by the Minnesota Vikings and showed some good things as a rookie in 2020. However, he hasn't shown much over the past two seasons and was released at the end of last season by the Vikings and then recently released by the Commanders.

If the Bills can get him back to playing at the level he did as a rookie, it could be a great signing that adds depth to the position.
