    2017 NFL Draft revisited: Grades for first-rounders two years in

    2017 NFL Draft revisited: Grades for first-rounders two years in

    27 Tre'Davious White - CB
    Grade: B+ | School: LSU


    Sure, if the Bills could redo the 2017 draft, they probably would've kept the 10th overall pick and taken Patrick Mahomes instead of trading down. But as far as consolation prizes go, Buffalo could've done far worse than White. (Just read the next blurb to see how much worse). After a rock-star rookie season -- in which he had four picks, 13 pass breakups and was in contention for Defensive Rookie of the Year -- White finished the 2018 season ranked fourth among cornerbacks in coverage snaps per reception and 10th in passer rating when targeted (min. 400 coverage snaps), but drew three times as many flags as in Year 1, per PFF. The excessive penalties in part prompted Bills CBs to practice in oven mitts (to prevent them from holding) earlier in camp. If White can recapture his rookie form, he could finish the year as a top-10 player at his position.

    Lattimore is an A- but Tre gets a B?

    GTFO.

    Tre is better than Lattimore all day.

    I really wanted Adams though. Ugh.

    In this particular instance, Lit really was right.

    I remember moments before they announced the trade I was chanting for ‘Watson or Mahomes, Watson or Mahomes, Watson or Mahomes’ when the trade was announced I screamed FUUUUUUUUUUUUCK! And when it was for another fucking DB I screamed FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

    Don’t care how good White is or becomes......Bills fucked up. As the tradition.

    A Bills fan could have gone into a coma in 2000, just woke up, and be shocked that he had not missed a thing!!! HAHAHAHA

    I nominate this post of the month, maybe more. Seriously, seriously it encapsulates everything of importance in one sentence. An indie film maker could possibly do well with that concept. -StraightJ 10/7/12

    What if Allen becomes a franchise qb? Will you be ok with Tre then? He is after all a damn good CB.

    But, in fairness, don't you scream "FUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!" if you can't find a matching sock in the morning? 😊

    While White is probably our best player if you don't have your future franchise qb you can't pass on 2 franchise qb's.
