Tre'Davious Tracker: Bills' rookie CB gets relatively low grade but blanks Patriots receivers

Tom Brady didn't test Tre'Davious White in New England, as the Buffalo Bills' rookie cornerback pitched a low-volume shutout in coverage.

Against the Patriots, White was only thrown at once and did not allow a catch. He received a 48.6 overall Pro Football Focus grade, the 66th best out of 97 qualifying cornerbacks in Week 16.

He made five total tackles (four solo) and didn't miss any tackles. His last missed tackle came in Week 11.

On the season, in PFF's system, White has defended 11 passes, the seventh-most among all cornerbacks. He's also allowed a catch rate of 47.9 percent, the ninth-lowest figure among 121 qualifiers at his position. His four interceptions are tied for the fifth-most among corners.

White has surrendered a quarterback rating of 64.6, which is the 14th-lowest out of those qualifying cornerbacks.

He currently owns PFF's third-highest cornerback grade, trailing only Jalen Ramsey of the Jaguars and Casey Hayward of the Chargers. Fellow rookie Marshon Lattimore, the presumed favorite for the Defensive Rookie of the Year award, has the fifth-best cornerback grade in PFF's system.

White has been on the field for 1,022 snaps thus far in 2017 — 98.6 percent of the Bills' defensive plays — the most snaps among all cornerbacks in the NFL.

Interestingly, Jay Cutler didn't shy away from throwing the football in White's direction in Week 15. The former LSU star was targeted eight times and allowed three catches for 58 yards with one interception and one pass breakup. He earned his highest coverage grade of the season in that game.
