Last year, the Bills brought in competition for former first-round draft pick cornerback Leodis McKelvin when they selected Aaron Williams in the second round.
Williams performed so well that he is expected to be the opening-day starter.
This year, the Bills used their No. 10 overall pick on another cornerback, South Carolina's Stephon Gilmore, further slimming McKelvin's chances as even a role player on the team.
Coupled with Terrence McGee and second-year man Justin Rogers, who played well down the stretch last year, McKelvin needs to prove his worth, as he is entering a contract year.
McKelvin was awful last year, starting just six games and being relegated to the bench for most of the year.
In OTAs, McKelvin has been seeing reps in the slot along with rookie fourth-round draft pick Ron Brooks out of Louisiana State.
McKelvin had this to say to BuffaloBills.com
It’s just an opportunity for me to get inside. I’m getting an opportunity on the outside and an opportunity on the inside. We’ve got a lot of young guys coming around and just the competition level, if anything happens on the back end as far as me not winning a starting job on the outside I can also play on the inside.
For a former first-round pick to be relegated to nickel and dime sets, McKelvin may be a training camp casualty, saving the Bills $1.58 million.
