White goes unnoticed in a good way

I'll post my full defensive film study Wednesday morning. But I thought it was briefly worth pointing out that New Orleans Saints cornerback Corey White went almost completely unnoticed in the 31-13 victory over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. Which is a good thing.





White
There was a lot of apprehension about White two weeks ago when the Atlanta Falcons picked on him during his first start of the season in place of injured veteran Jabari Greer. But White seems to have settled in nicely since then. According to Pro Football Focus, White was only targeted twice in 40 coverage snaps, without allowing a completion.

On one of them, a deep ball intended for tight end Greg Olsen, White was actually looking for an offensive pass interference flag after Olsen had to prevent White from making an interception. On another, White crashed down to make an aggressive pass break-up against receiver Ted Ginn Jr.

The Saints' entire pass coverage was great throughout the night (other than the one TD pass from Cam Newton to Steve Smith against Keenan Lewis in the fourth quarter). Lewis had a great night overall, aggressively jumping some routes and avoiding pick plays -- one time plowing through receiver Brandon LaFell's attempted block to stop Smith for a 3-yard loss.

Safety Kenny Vaccaro and linebacker David Hawthorne also showed up on film a few times disrupting Smith's routes -- one time Hawthorne absolutely popped Smith on an attempted crossing route.

The Panthers don't have a very dynamic passing offense. But it was still an impressive performance a week after the Saints had so many blown assignments in pass coverage at Seattle.

Re: White goes unnoticed in a good way

I know this is going to sting like a went towel in a cold gym locker but here is where Corey White is compared to the rest of the league.

NFL rating for passes into players coverage he is 24th 74.1 (Tied with Talib), one higher than Kenan Lewis.

He has been thrown at 10 more times than Finnegan and allowed 1 less reception.

Average number of yards/completion in his coverage area in the NFL 4th!

Yards after catch allowed. 80 8th in the NFL.

Overall ranking 19th in the league.

Re: White goes unnoticed in a good way

For a guy projected as a strong safety at the combine he sure looks like a good CB. Fast and physical. Everything my wife would want out of me when raking the yard (dirty minds people).

Re: White goes unnoticed in a good way

He looked good in my book. He got killed by ole boy from the Falcons, but other then that he's settled in great like I knew he would. I wanted him to start over Greer since Day 1. Big corner with great speed. Exactly what we needed. Now we have two.
