Markus White   #61 LB

Height: 6-4   Weight: 264   Age: 26

Born: 11/25/1987 West Palm Beach , FL

College: Florida State

Experience: 3rd season

High School: John I. Leonard HS [Lake Worth, FL]









Draft 2011

Pick No.224

Selected By: Washington Redskins

Round: 7

Pick (Overall): 21 (224)

Pick Analysis: 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.
