WR Kevin White set to visit Bears, Rams, Jets and Giants

It was only a matter of time before Kevin White started piling up frequent flier miles.

The former West Virginia wide receiver could be a top-five pick in the NFL draft in three weeks, yet entered the week having not visited a single NFL team. But with his first visit, to the Tennessee Titans on Wednesday, now behind him, White revealed a busy schedule of more upcoming trips.

The New York Jets, Chicago Bears, St. Louis Rams and New York Giants are all arranging to host White, according to Ross Tucker of the NBC Sports Network. Between those and perhaps a few other visits or private workouts, White's calendar for the next three weeks should be very full.

The Jets hold the No. 6 pick of the draft, but with the club's uncertainty at the quarterback position, a wide receiver wouldn't figure to be the right first-round move for Gang Green. By contrast, the Bears are in need of a wide receiver and White could be an ideal fit for an offense that could use another dynamic target to pair with Alshon Jeffery.

Presumably, quarterback Jay Cutler would approve. The Bears traded wide receiver Brandon Marshall and a seventh-round draft pick to the Jets for a fifth-round pick earlier this offseason.

White and Alabama's Amari Cooper are expected to be the first two wide receivers chosen in the draft, with the first possibly going to the Oakland Raiders with the No. 4 pick.
