Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White named NFL’s defensive rookie of the month

The Bills rookie is making a name for himself

Buffalo Bills first-round pick Tre’Davious White was named the NFL’s defensive rookie of the month in September. The defensive back out of LSU hasn’t been talked much a whole lot on a national stage, but after his solid performances the first two weeks, he broke out against the Denver Broncos.

As a rookie starting cornerback, White was attacked by opposing quarterbacks pretty much immediately when he stepped on the playing field. White responded better than anybody could have hoped, tallying 16 tackles, seven pass break ups (to lead the NFL), and his first career interception through three games.

Many Bills fans were skeptical of trading down from the No. 10 overall pick to the 27th overall pick. Fans became even more puzzled after the trade of Ronald Darby, putting White alone and through a trial by fire. However, picking White at 27th overall seems to be paying off so far and gives fans more reasons to trust Sean McDermott, Brandon Beane and of course, the process.
