facebooktwitterreddit analyst Bucky Brooks, a former NFL player and player scout, recently named his top five lockdown cornerbacks and a former LSU football star made his list.

Brooks has Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey, a former Florida State standout, as his No. 1 lockdown cornerback, followed by Marlon Humphrey (Baltimore Ravens), Xavien Howard (Miami Dolphins), and Jaire Alexander (Green Bay Packers).

Rounding out Brooks’ top five is Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White.

White played at LSU from 2013-2016. He was a member of the All-SEC first team in 2016.

The Shreveport, LA native was selected by the Bills with the No. 27 overall pick in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

What Bucky Brooks loves about former LSU football standout Tre’Davious White

It’s no surprise that Brooks is a big fan of White, who was a four-year starter at LSU.

The former Tiger has been elected to two Pro-Bowls and he was the NFL interceptions co-leader in 2019 with six. White already has 15 career interceptions in his first four years in the league.

Brooks went into a bit of detail about what he likes about White while revealing his top five lockdown cornerbacks.

“The Bills’ CB1 is a blue-collar worker on the island with the instincts, awareness, and anticipation to shine in the zone-heavy scheme employed by head coach Sean McDermott,” wrote Brooks.

“Of the targets thrown into his coverage since 2017, 17.1 percent resulted in either a pass breakup or interception, which places him in the top five among CB qualifiers, per PFF,” added Brooks.

“Make no mistake, White is a high-end playmaker who delivers consistent results.”

By the way, White signed a four-year extension worth $70 million with the Bills prior to the start of the 2020 season.
