LSU junior linebacker Devin White and sophomore cornerback Greedy Williams were both named to the Chuck Bednarik Watch List on Monday.

The Bednarik Award has been presented to the College Defensive Player. Per LSUSports.net:
quote:

The watch lists is the first of 16 set to be announced over the next two weeks. The Bednarik Award has been presented to the College Defensive Player of the Year since 1995. Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu took home the awards in 2010 and 2011.

White, a junior from Springhill, Louisiana, led the Southeastern Conference in tackles a year ago, registering 133 from his linebacker position. He became the first LSU player to lead the SEC in tackles since the early 1980s.

Williams, a sophomore from Shreveport, started all 13 games for the Tigers at cornerback in 2017. He led the SEC in interceptions with six on his way to earning third team All-America honors from the Associated Press.

LB Devin White has a much better chance at winning the Bednarik Award than CB Greedy Williams simply because Williams is so good opponent QB's will just throw away from him. Now this means the CB opposite of Greedy and the Nickelback will get ample opportunities to shine but the Bednarik Award will be won by LB Devin White. GEAUX TIGERS!!!!!!!!!!PURPLEREIGN?????????

Bradie James had 154 tackles in 2002 and he didn't lead the SEC in tackles?

Well back when Brady James played they didn't play as much spread offense as they do now, nowadays the MLB has to be very fast and very active to get 133 tackles ala Devin White. And also because of the way DC Dave Aranda plays his defense everybody to the ball a lot of White tackles are assisted, not taking away from his skills it's just the way we play defense. The college game is moving away from the 250, 255 lb run stuffing thumper in the middle to the 230, 240 lb athletic LB in the middle who can cover and blitz.
