Overview

White is an explosive, well-rounded prospect who lacks some size and experience carrying the load. He could develop into a starter in time but will provide outstanding value as a change-of-pace, third-down back and special-teams ace early in his career. Despite lack of reps, he allows plays to develop and decisively hits the hole. He has exceptional acceleration and agility. He runs hard but likely doesn't have the bulk to be a punishing runner in the NFL. He's refined in the passing game and a capable blocker. He's rising up draft boards and could go on Day 2.


Strengths

Possesses impressive speed to go with adequate size. Determined runner who fights for extra yards. Displays very good vision and patience. Explodes through the hole. Makes defenders miss in the box. Comfortable in the passing game. Good route-runner with good hands. Adequate in pass protection. Extensive special-teams coverage experience.

Weaknesses

Lacks rushing experience and was rarely asked to shoulder heavy workload in college. Does not have the natural size or power to push the pile or consistently break a lot of tackles at the next level. Might never be an ideal fit for goal-line or short-yardage situations.

Grade

6.3
