Pro Football Focus included LSU center Ethan Pocic and cornerback Tre’Davious White in their list of five NFL Draft prospects on the rise after week 2 of college football.

Here is some of what they had to say about both players:

2. Ethan Pocic, C, LSU
While the sky may be falling in Death Valley, LSU has had a couple of notable performers through two games. The offensive line has been inconsistent on a play-for-play basis, but Pocic has done a fine job at center. He brings a big presence to the center position at 6-foot-7 301-pounds, but he’s still capable of firing out at the snap and getting into good position in the running game. Pocic has done a nice job of controlling nose tackles as a run blocker while also making key blocks both on the move and at the second level. In pass protection, Pocic has surrendered only one pressure and one other loss in pass protection on his 47 attempts this season. Read more.

3. Tre’Davious White, CB, LSU
Staying at LSU, White has had an excellent start to the season after a rocky 2015. He was one of the best players on the field against Wisconsin in the opener, keeping the ball in front of him and picking off a pass and returning it for a game-changing score. Perhaps just as important is his tackling as he’s yet to miss on his eight attempts after missing 10 of his 46 attempts last season. So far he’s only allowed four receptions on 10 targets for 30 yards (3.0 yards per attempt) to go with the interception and another pass defended. Read more.
