Similar to safety, the Buffalo Bills haven't really made any significant changes to the position but there is a strong case to be made that this group will be dramatically better than last year. That improvement starts with Tre'Davious White, who has the potential to play like one of the best cornerbacks in the league.

However, the torn ACL suffered in 2021 impacted him last season and he didn't return to a regular season until Week 12. Even once he returned, it looked like he was still trying to gain confidence in his knee and how he moved on the field.

So far this offseason, White has reportedly been moving much better and now almost two years removed he looks set to play at that high level again.

The absence of White certainly created challenges but also opened up opportunities for players like Dane Jackson, Kaiir Elam, and Christian Benford to get meaningful snaps early in their careers. That experience should be invaluable but the key to this group is going to be Elam.

If the former first round pick can take over that second cornerback position, this is going to be a very tough secondary.
