The 2017 National Football League draft is underway and the Buffalo Bills are off to a solid start. Before they were on the clock Buffalo swung a trade with Kansas City giving up their pick at 10 in exchange for the Chiefs pick at 27, their third-round pick (91 overall) and their first-round pick in 2018.

Buffalo used that pick to select Louisiana State University cornerback Tre'Davious White, who the Bills hope can replace Stephon Gilmore, who left the Bills for the Patriots in free agency. He measures in at 5-foot-11 and 195-pounds and ran a 4.47 in the 40-yard dash at the National Football League combine this year.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott told Buffalobills.com earlier in the day that there were a lot of teams interested in their pick at 10. In 2016 he allowed only 26 receptions on 61 targets with an impressive 15 passes defended according to ProFootballFocus.

Going into training camp White will be fierce competition for the starting position alongside incumbent starter Ronald Darby.
