Tre’Davious White

The focus has been on the offensive side of the ball but if there was one player on the defensive side of the ball that will be critical to the Buffalo Bills success this coming season it is cornerback Tre’Davious White.

In 2019, Tre’Davious White had a breakout year where he was named a first-team All-Pro and was tied for the league lead in interceptions with six. This past season, White wasn’t able to replicate that same performance but was still able to perform as a top corner in this defense with three interceptions and allowing a QB rating of 79.9.

The reason that Tre’Davious White is on this list is that while last year was a down year, the Bills were still able to win. However, with questions at the other cornerback position, the defense can’t afford Tre’Davious White to regress any further.

While it would be ideal that the Buffalo Bills get the 2019 version of Tre’Davious White, if White plays at the level he did last year it will still be a boost for this pass defense.
