On the defensive side of the ball, cornerback may be the most difficult position to play as a rookie. The wide receivers that cornerbacks play against in college generally do not compare to the type of player they face-off with in the NFL. There is usually a learning curve for young cornerbacks, but that wasn't the case for Ronald Darby in his rookie season with the Buffalo Bills.
Darby finished his rookie season as the runner-up in the Defensive Rookie of the Year competition with 68 total tackles, 21 passes defensed, and two passes defensed. After an impressive rookie season, Eric Davis believes that the cornerback is just getting started. Davis selected Darby as his potential breakout star on NFL.com.
Buffalo's secondary features one talented, up-and-coming cornerback
Ronald Darby has the skill set to be a top-notch cornerback in this league and had a solid start to his career in 2015. The entire Buffalo defense will be more comfortable in Rex Ryan's scheme, leading the guys up front to take some pressure off the secondary. The Bills have a lot of talent in their defensive backfield -- safeties Aaron Williams and Corey Graham, cornerback Stephon Gilmore -- and the youngster out of Florida State might be the most talented one of the group.
