RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The depth chart in the secondary is crowded in Buffalo. Aaron Williams is a former second round pick as a corner back but has failed to perform in that role. He will move to safety for the Bills and is probably the fourth safety on the roster.
Williams, entering his second season, has a good chance at a starting cornerback slot. Both spots are kind of up for grabs between Williams, first-rounder Stephon Gilmore, Terrence McGee, Leodis McKelvin, and then Justin Rogers as a dark horse, though it's thought that Williams, the Bills' second-round pick in 2011, has the inside track for one of those spots. In nine games and six starts last season, Williams contributed 32 tackles, five passes defensed, one pick, and one forced fumble.
The 34th overall pick in the draft will play corner in the NFL but has safety skills as well if those are ever needed. The Bills are pretty loaded at CB, however, one of the few positions they have that type of strength, so Williams is looking like a No. 4 or No. 5 corner to begin his career.
