Corey Graham to be moved from CB to Safety?

Buffalo is seven deep at cornerback and could use some additional talent at safety. One option for the Bills? Moving Corey Graham from cornerback to safety.

The Buffalo Bills have a very talented secondary, but there’s more talent at cornerback than safety. One way the Bills could even out that talent? Move Corey Graham from cornerback to safety.

Rex Ryan is open to the idea according to the Buffalo News.

“It’s something that we will definitely consider,” the Buffalo Bills’ coach said. “You try to get your best 11 players on the field and I think Corey is a tremendous player. It wouldn’t surprise me if he has the talent to do that.”

The Bills have Aaron Williams and Duke Williams penciled in as their starters at safety. In addition to the starting duo, Bacarri Rambo, Jonathan Meeks, Kenny Ladler, Deon Broomfield and Wes Miller are battling for roster spots at the position.

During practices, Graham has only played cornerback, but he believes he could play safety if needed.

“I’m able to play safety. I’m able to play whatever they want. I’m pretty sure we’re going to be able to be creative to get guys on the field. If they ask me to do it, I’ll do it.”

A move to safety may be more realistic for Graham if Duke Williams struggles as a starter or if an injury occurs at the position. That said, moving Graham to safety is a possibility after the Bills drafted Ronald Darby in the second round of the 2015 NFL draft. In addition to Graham and Darby, the Bills currently have Stephon Gilmore, Leodis McKelvin, Nickell Robey, Ross Cockrell and Ron Brooks at the position.  

Adding fuel to the fire, Graham did play safety at times in 2014. He started at strong safety in Week 6 against the New England Patriots and played free safety in Week 7 (Minnesota Vikings) and 10 (Kansas City Chiefs).
