2017 NFL Draft picks: Buffalo Bills select Tre’Davious White, CB, LSU

New, comments

The Bills found an experienced starting cornerback with their first round pick.

With the 27th pick of the 2017 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills have selected Tre’Davious White. The Bills were left with a wide array of options on the board at tenth overall, but an offer from the Chiefs to swap for two first rounders and a third was too good for them to pass up.

White was a four year starter for the Tigers, accumulating 49 games of experience. His coverage technique is very far developed, with skills at both man and zone coverage, but he plays best in zone coverage. White has great timing to break on routes, and defended 14 passes, intercepting two and returning one for a touchdown during his senior season.

White would be able to start immediately for the Bills across from Ronald Darby. He would allow players like Micah Hyde and Kevon Seymour to flex into spots that suit their strengths the most.

Barring another trade, the Bills’ next pick will be in the second round, number 44 overall
