The Buffalo Bills made LSU cornerback Tre’davious White the third Tiger to land in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft tonight, selecting him 27th overall.

That makes two first-round selections for #DBU, with White joining Jamal Adams, Patrick Peterson, Morris Claiborne, Eric Reid and LaRon Landry on the first-round list in the last 10 years.

White started 47 of 49 games over his four-year LSU career, intercepted six passes, broke up 34 (the fifth-highest total in school history) and scored four touchdowns — three on punt returns, one on a pick-six.

He’ll step in quickly for the departed Stephon Gilmore, who signed a big free agent deal with New England.
