There is no question that the best player the Buffalo Bills have selected in the first round of the NFL Draft since 2000 has to be cornerback Tre’Davious White. The Bills selected White with the 27th overall pick in 2017 after they traded back with the Kansas City Chiefs, who moved up to select Patrick Mahomes.
White stepped into the starting lineup as a rookie and has started 47 out of a possible 48 games over the past three seasons. He has quickly become a key part of this secondary, a group that has been near the top of the league in fewest passing yards allowed the past three years.
This past season though he had a breakout season with 58 total tackles, 17 passes defended and six interceptions. The interceptions were tied for the league high with Stephon Gilmore and VIkings’ safety Anthony Harris.
He also earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl as well as place on the first-team All-Pro team.
The emergence of Tre’Davious White coincides with the rise in the Bills defense and these two together are no coincidence. He is an excellent season and should continue to make a claim as one of the top corners in the league in 2020.
