Tre’Davious White named third-best corner in NFL

In just two NFL seasons, Tre’Davious White has already established himself as one of the NFL’s best. The USA TODAY NFL Wire marked White as the third-best outside cornerback in the NFL. Here’s what Doug Farrar wrote about the LSU product.

Most young cornerbacks find themselves in a vicious learning curve when transitioning from college to the NFL—receivers are better and smarter, route concepts are far more complex, and coverages are more variable. White has proven the exception to the rule. He allowed a 48.1% catch rate and an opponent passer rating of 64.9 in his rookie season of 2017, and given equivalent opportunities in 2018, White showed that he doesn’t know what a sophomore slump looks like—he allowed 30 catches on 52 targets for just 357 yards, two touchdowns, two interceptions, and an opponent passer rating of 75.6.

The only two players ahead of White are Chicago’s Kyle Fuller and New England’s Stephon Gillmore. White anchors a secondary that allowed the least passing yards per game last season at 179.2. The group as a whole might be the best in the NFL with safeties Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde plus Levi Wallace opposite White at corner.

I don't know who Gillmore is. But Gilmore is a damn fine corner.

Awesome, until contract time. That will be a huge amount of money. 

We have 3 more years before we have to worry about that. Until then just win.

I wonder who he is going to play for when his rookie contract is done. All the good corners go to new teams for the money.

Tre will be one of the first test cases of Beane's stated "sign your own" philosophy.

Extend him early.

 

 

^^^ This.... probably the best chance the Bills will have at retaining him.

The bills IMO opinion have the best secondary in the NFL and I don’t think anyone else is close. Youth, competitiveness, skill and depth. Toss in the young LBs and the back 7 of our defense is excellent. If we can get any pass rush, our defense is going to be a handful.

Somebody should tell Madden that he's rated 3rd best cuz on Ultimate Team his highest card was a 88 overall all the way til May while 10s of other corners had 95+ overalls...

 

His card was pretty much useless after the first couple of months Madden released.

Comparing last years qb schedule to this years seems to be very favorable for this secondary. No nfc north qbs that sling it all over. Brady Ben Baker wentz dalton dak Manning. After the first few I’m not scared of the others. Could be a no fly zone

There really needs to be a ‘port-o-let’ on the sidelines for just such occasions.

I keep thinking the same thing about the pass rush. Any sort of legit push up front and that secondary is gonna be FILTHY.

Because he has to go ‘number 1’?  🤔

This analysis focuses on pass coverage and the data supports the determination.  If performance in run defense could be factored into this, I believe White would jump ahead of Gilmore.  During his time in Buffalo, Gilmore was not good at all in coming up to play the run.  In fact, he seemed very hesitant to get into the play.  Maybe the injuries early in his career have created this behavior.  Both Fuller and White are very good in run support.

 

As far as the future cost of a contract, I'm not worried about the Bills being able to retain him.  Clearing cap space last year and the conservative free agent contracts this year set things up to be able to pay their best players.  White is definitely one of the best players and they will pay him.

Their CB stable is impressive.  Poyer and Hyde are a solid safety tandem and they could do a lot worse, but they can also do better.  Hopefully some of the younger guys start to make some noise there.

I agree that he's top-3 in the NFL, but I'm actually a bit surprised somebody in the media ranked him there after last year. He was still solid overall, but not as good as his rookie year. Normally, our players need to have a ridiculously good season to get a sniff from national media.

The DB group is special. I made a post about him after week 2 but watch out for Taron Johnson in the slot. Kid jumps off the screen , is extremely physical and very good coverage. He just plays with a ferocious streak and even shined with a bum shoulder. Going to be special
