D.J. James - Auburn

D.J. James is a 6'1" senior corner out of Auburn, weighs 164 pounds and he ran a 4.6 40-time. His lack of size is not ideal at the NFL level but his coverage skills are up there with the best of them, whether in man or zone, he can play. Plus, he has the frame to put on some more weight and likely will; however, a concern I would have is he's already one of the slower corners with his 4.6 time, and adding weight could potentially make that time slower.

He also has a ton of experience, having spent three seasons with the Oregon Ducks, before transferring to Auburn in 2022 and is now a fifth-year senior. despite the size, he's still projected as a late second-round selection, which is likely where the Bills would be drafting. He's done a good job mirroring routes and tracking the ball once it's in the air and has good enough hands to make a play and get the interception.
