Tre’Davious White

Could the New Orleans Saints finally draft a LSU prospect? If so, look no further than this ball-hawking, freak of nature.

If your team is looking for a dominant cornerback who thrives on man to man coverage, say hello to LSU’s Tre’Davious White. White has made a compelling case for himself as one the best cover corners in this year’s class. In 2016, White attributed to his team 35 tackles, a half of a sack, 1 forced fumble, and 1 interception returned for a touchdown. Although his numbers this past season weren’t stunning, his on the field presence made a lasting impact for LSU.

When I watch film on White it’s clear how well he stacks up against some of the better receivers in college.

By far, my personal favorite attribute White brings to the game is his ability to match up against practically any receiver and still dominate. Sitting dominantly at 5’11”, White shows what he’s capable of on the field, and doesn’t hold back. White reads throws well and simply acts on them. His ability to identify where the ball is heading allows White to make numerous plays for his team, whether that be swatting balls, or breaking up passes. White is there for it all. All around the field, he is simply capable of more than meets the eyes.

White is a gifted corner, who shows great promise as he enters the draft through his athleticism, cover skills, dominant character, and presence on the field. Although he may be overlooked, Tre’Davious White is a gifted cornerback with potential like no other. Although the corne back at this time isn’t projected as the best prospects in regards to that position, if White was drafted by the Saints at 11, I’d completely understand it. He brings talents, and skills like no other that would greatly benefit the Saints right now.

The next corner back features unmatched athleticism and is a dynamic play maker.
