Tre’Davious White

Tre’Davious White had an outstanding rookie season that ended with a Pro Bowl snub. His season was so good that he showed up as the No. 31 overall player heading into this season in an offseason ranking.

So while he may have been snubbed last year, he is being recognized as a real talent after one season. But that doesn’t mean he has officially arrived.

White shows up on this list because he has to prove that he isn’t a one-hit wonder. He better not be, because if that is the case then the defense will have a weak spot at one of the most important positions on the field.

There is no indication that White is set to slow down as he is still approaching his peak. In fact, he is probably a few years away from his best football as he will continue to learn more about his opposing receivers with each passing week.

White needs to play at a similar level as he did last year and prove that he is worthy of being considered not only the top corner in Buffalo, but one of the best in the NFL.

One thing worth noting is that fans shouldn’t get too caught up in his interception numbers as a way to gauge his plays. He finished last season with four but now that he is considered one of the better corners out there, the ball may not be thrown his way often. That means the rest of the secondary needs to step up, but it also means White is taking the top receiver out of the offense.
