LSU Star Tre’Davious White Changes His Senior Bowl Plans
Not to get too philosophical in NFL Draft procedures, but conventional draft wisdom is not treating Shreveport's Tre'Davious White well.
See, conventional NFL Draft wisdom would say that a guy who was one of the best cornerbacks in the country his senior year, while also being one of the top kick-returners, AND one of the top team leaders on a major college program, would make you a lock for the first round of the draft. If not a lock for the Top 10 picks. But apparently the 2017 draft class is too stocked with secondary talent.
Some projections have White at the 10th best cornerback in the draft, others put him even lower.
So heading to the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Al was pretty important to help White's draft stock. Which worked for the first few days of practice, as many publications started reporting that his stock was rising as he talked with NFL personnel. However there's now been a setback according to the Louisiana Radio Network:
"Former LSU cornerback Tre’Davious White won’t play in tomorrow’s Senior Bowl after he sprained his ankle during practice this week."
White will still have the NFL Combine to show NFL decision makers how fast he truly is, so all is not lost. But it still would have been nice for him to be able to showcase himself at the Senior Bowl.
