2015 NFL Draft: Buffalo Bills looking at future starters at cornerback

New, comment

The Buffalo Bills could be looking ahead to future starters at the cornerback position in this year's NFL Draft.

Former Buffalo Bills general Buddy Nix used to say that NFL teams could add a cornerback every year in the NFL Draft. With four solid corners at the top of their roster, some might say the Bills are loaded - but it's a distinct possibility that Buffalo could add a cornerback as high as pick No. 50 in the 2015 NFL Draft, an idea we discuss at length in this video.

Uncertainty at the safety position (where Corey Graham could spend some time this season), question marks surrounding Stephon Gilmore's long-term signability, and a hefty Leodis McKelvin contract are the biggest questions in the defensive backfield, but they're future concerns - which is perfect for a Bills team lacking a first-round pick. If Buffalo did choose a corner with their second- or third-round picks, it gives that player time to grow into the starting role while providing depth and special teams ability.

In the video embedded above, we break down the cornerback class to see which prospects could fit that mold in this year's draft class. Check it out!
