Buffalo Bills' Weakest Position Groups

With the good, there comes the not-so-good. These positional groups aren't necessarily bad but are a weak spot with some depth issues. These groups are weaknesses of the team and maybe some areas of concern throughout the 2024 season.

Buffalo Bills Weakest Position Group: Cornerbacks

This defense would be in some serious trouble if they didn't make the trade for Rasul Douglas last season. The depth in this group is a bit concerning, but the talent isn't bad. Rasul Douglas, Christian Benford, and Taron Johnson are a nice trio, but a struggling Kaiir Elam as the next man is a bit concerning. Elam was supposedly playing through an ankle injury last season, so maybe he will prove his first-round value in 2024 as he will get more opportunities. Even after Elam, the rest of the players are practice squad caliber. The Bills did add corner Daequan Hardy to the mix via the draft.

Buffalo Bills Weakest Position Group: Strong Safety

The Bills were able to address their holes in both safety positions, as they've picked up free safety Mike Edwards from the Chiefs and drafted Cole Bishop in the second round of the draft. The strong safety position is in a bigger deficit than people may think.

Taylor Rapp is a decent player but will struggle in coverage at times, where he's given up big plays more times than people may think, part of the reason why his 2023 PFF grade is 56.4. Although he's learned the McDermott defense and has some starting experience There's no doubt he can make a play here and there, but it'll be a noticeable downgrade when he's on the field compared to Jordan Poyer last year.
