For the most part, first round pick Tre’Davious White has looked nothing like a rookie at Buffalo Bills training camp. On Sunday, White spent much of the training camp practice going against No. 1 receiver Sammy Watkins. White finished Sunday’s practice with two pass breakups.
White’s strong play hasn’t gone unnoticed by his teammates. Fellow defensive back Micah Hyde was asked about White following Sunday’s practice and the team’s starting safety praised White while comparing him to a former Pro Bowl cornerback.
“Oh, Tre’s a beast, man,” Hyde said. “He’s good. He’s real good. He’s making plays on the ball, he’s all over the place. That guy’s going to be really good. I see plays from guys in the past (that are) splitting images of him. Sam Shields – I played with him in the past – he reminds me of Sam Shields and that’s a Pro Bowl player so Tre has a knack for football.”
Hyde played alongside Shields from 2013-2016 with the Green Bay Packers. During their time together, Shields made the Pro Bowl in 2014. Shields, currently a free agent, started 62 games in his career with Green Bay.
White will start from day one with the Bills across from third year cornerback Ronald Darby. The cornerback will probably go through some ups and downs as a rookie, but he’ll gain valuable experience on the field. In time, it’s certainly possible that Hyde will have another Pro Bowl cornerback as a teammate.
