Summary:

As a JUCO transfer, White has only played two seasons in the FBS. He has great size and knows how to use his body to position himself in jump ball situations. In 2013, White struggled to catch the ball consistently and often used his body. But this last season, he drastically improved and caught everything thrown his way. What impresses me most about White is his playmaking ability in jump ball situations. His combination of size and athleticism make him very hard to cover in these situations.

While there were questions regarding his speed and acceleration, White proved doubters wrong and ran an impressive 4.35 40-YD Dash at the NFL Scouting Combine. But while he ran a great time, White does not seem nearly that fast on film. He does not have great agility and I was projected to run in the low 4.4's.

A very underrated part of White's game is blocking. He is one of the best blocking wide receivers in the 2015 NFL Draft. This is a good sign because it shows White does not take plays off, even when he knows he will not be getting the ball.

White has all of the physical tools to become a Pro Bowl receiver in the NFL. But he is a slight risk as he has limited experience in the FBS and only had one dominant season. He and Amari Cooper are regarded as the best wide receivers in the 2015 NFL Draft.
