Cornerbacks (6)

Tre'Davious White, Kaiir Elam, Dane Jackson, Christian Benford, Taron Johnson, Siran Neal

Similar to wide receiver, the players at cornerback that will make the 53-man roster would appear to be pretty well set at this point. The Bills are going to have Tre'Davious White and Taron Johnson as starters on the outside and at nickel respectively.

There might be a potential position battle for the other starting outside cornerback position but Kaiir Elam is the overwhelming favorite at this point. This would leave Dane Jackson and Christian Benford as the backups but both players have primarily been outside cornerbacks.

The final spot will likely be Siran Neal, who is a fixture on the special teams unit and can back up Taron Johnson if the need were to arise. While Cam Lewis might be a better option as a backup, the Bills are already expected to have notable turnover on special teams that a veteran like Siran Neal probably makes the team.
