Tre'Davious Tracker: Bills' rookie cornerback is playing like he did at LSU

Against the Falcons in Week Four, Tre'Davious White pieced together another lockdown performance.

The first-year pro was targeted eight times, surrendered four receptions for just 18 yards, and had one pass breakup.

Of the 76 cornerbacks who've played at least 150 snaps thus far in the 2017 season, White owns the highest overall grade and has the fourth-highest overall coverage grade among those corners.

PFF has him with six pass breakups, the most in football.

He's allowed a passer rating of 53.7, the 12th-highest among 110 cornerbacks. Actually, though E.J. Gaines' passer rating against of 41.0 is the best on the team and the seventh-best in the NFL among qualifiers at his position.

His yards per coverage snap figure remains the least impressive portion of his resume at 0.96. That ranks him 34th out of 79 cornerbacks.

White currently allows a reception every 13 coverage snaps, the 20th-best rate out of those 79 corners.

Last year, Ronald Darby had four pass breakups through four games. Stephon Gilmore had three pass breakups. Gilmore had allowed a passer rating of 57.8. Darby's passer rating number was 92.1.

White's illustrious career at LSU indicated he'd be this type of cornerback in the NFL. He recorded 23 pass breakups in his final three seasons with the Tigers against top competition. In 2016, White had 12 pass breakups, the third-highest figure in the country. As a senior, he allowed a passer rating of 61.0 on throws in his target area. From 2014 to 2016, White allowed a passer rating of 70.5.
