Bills depth chart has few surprises

Posted by Chris Brown on August 9, 2016 – 9:05 am

The Bills released their unofficial depth chart and there aren’t too many surprises in the listings with the team’s first preseason game just four days away. But here are a few that caught our eye.

At safety behind starter Aaron Williams, listed as the backup is Duke Williams followed by Jonathan Meeks. For most of the last week, Meeks has seen more and more time at the backup safety spot alongside Robert Blanton than Duke Williams. Whether that trend continues enough to alter the depth chart remains to be seen.

CBs Jonathan Dowling and Sammy Seamster have each been listed ahead of veteran free agent Sterling Moore. This is a bit tricky because Moore is seen as the primary nickel corner backup to Nickell Robey-Coleman and has seen a good deal of work in the slot. Perhaps because he’s viewed as a backup subpackage corner he’s listed further down on the depth chart.

Kevon Seymour is listed as the backup kick returner behind Reggie Bush. As we noted in this space earlier Seymour has emerged as a new kick return candidate this week as he took some kicks in practice Monday. He previously had not been part of the rotation, but is clearly a candidate now. Greg Salas is listed as the backup punt returner.

Beyond that there aren’t many surprises on Buffalo’s depth chart.
