As part of our coverage leading up to the 2017 NFL Draft we will provide profiles of more than 100 prospects, including a scouting report and video interviews with each player.
Tre-Davious White, CB, LSU
5'11" | 192 lbs.
35 tackles, two interceptions, 1 touchdown, 14 passes defended
"Full-time starter for better part of four years and one of the premier mirror-and-match cornerbacks in the game. Has the feet, athleticism and instincts for prolonged coverage responsibilities and his twitch will always have him near the throw. Best suited for all forms of man coverage. Should compete as special teams performer. Lacks run-support physicality to be an every-down corner, but he's talented enough to challenge for slot duties right away." - Lance Zierlein, NFL.com
The hype around Johnson – who's become a trendy CB2 pick already – only continues to grow, and the rookie, to his credit, isn't backing away from it:
"I didn't think there were six conerbacks that should've been taken ahead of me," he said in an interview with Bears media. At the end of the day, that's just more fuel to my fire. Even if I was the first one taken, I still would have found something to motivate me in some way, shape, or form to keep me going. Just being, like you said, the 7th cornerback taken, it just makes me want to go to work even more."
Mike Ditka is now the owner and chairmen of 'X League' football, apparently.
X-League is a women's tackle football league that was originally founded as the Lingerie Football League. In 2009 they rebranded to the Legends Football League, and 10 years after that decided to again rebrand, this time calling it X-League. Now Mike Ditka owns it. There's a video and everything, exclusively featuring footage and photos of his playing days (??):
Ditka also provides a quote in the video, saying, "Now from an ownership and executive perspective, I want to provide women a high-profile platform to compete against the greatest female athletes in the world while creating a destination league for millions of girls to aspire to play in."
"It’s time to give women, and girls, the same opportunity to play the game that the men play,” he added.
