LSU is known by most football fans as "DBU", so it comes as no surprise that another star player is being eyed by the NFL.

NFL analyst Lance Zierlein ranks Tre'Davious White as the No. 2 defensive back in his top 10 players receiving interest from NFL scouts.

"White might be the most talented cover corner in the college game, even though he doesn't receive much attention," Zierlein said. "When watching LSU's 2014 game against Alabama, White looked substantially better against Amari Cooper than his teammate, second-round draft pick Jalen Collins."

White had two interceptions, 33 tackles and a sack last year for the Tigers.

Only Florida's Vernon Hargreaves III was ranked ahead of White. The SEC landed four defensive backs in the top 10 list.
