An NFL scout's take on LSU CB Tre'Davious White
LSU’s Tre’Davious White will be one of the most sought-after cornerbacks when this year’s NFL draft rolls around.
In Robert Klemko’s column for Monday Morning Quarterback posted Wednesday, an anonymous scout gave his opinion of what makes White such a tantalizing pro prospect.
“Elite athlete who can be an asset in the return game,” the scout wrote. “Great feet and man cover skills. Sort of a liability in run support but getting better at tackling and should be able to add some weight without losing speed.”
CBS Sports projects the 6-foot, 197-pound cornerback as the eighth-best player at his position and to be taken in the second round of the draft. White actually passed on entering last year’s draft as a junior, when he was also slated to be a second-round pick.
With one game left in his college career, White has racked up 163 tackles, 33 pass breakups and six interceptions. He has fielded 64 punts for an average of 9.9 yards per return and three touchdowns.
