Overview

White has very good size, enough athleticism, and appears to still have some upside which would allow him to contribute as a backup 4-3 weakside defensive end. Probably lacks the first-step quickness, polish and stoutness against the run to be viewed as a future starter. Displays some potential as a pass rusher but isn't overly explosive and needs technical refinement. Adequate against the run but has difficulty anchoring against true road-graders or the double-team. Can struggle to find the football at times. Team captain with good character. White might hear his named called on Day 3.


Strengths

White has NFL-ideal measurables. Flashes some burst and explosion as a pass rusher. Capable of playing with leverage, setting the edge and maintaining outside contain. Good tackler who can deliver some violent blows. Plays hard and appears to be well conditioned. Has good intangibles and is a hard worker.

Weaknesses

Needs to do a better job of getting off the football with better snap-count anticipation and more quickness. Raw pass rusher who is still developing his arsenal of moves and ability to use his hands. Struggles against the double-team. Not a scheme-versatile prospect who can slide inside or stand up. Instincts are below average.

Grade

2.1
