On the Hoof: White is physically impressive prospect at first glance. He's more developed in the upper body than you would think for a guy standing at around 6-2, 205 pounds. He fits the profile of a receiver with options at the next level if he keeps adding weight and mass.
Needs Improvement: Needs to work getting off of press-man coverage and running crisper routes. White has a tendency to round off his routes, allowing room for the defender to make a break on the ball.
Most Impressive: He has very good body control and above-average hands. Once he gets turned up field with the ball in his hands, he is nearly impossible to catch because of his superior speed. He's got major college basketball and track talent, too.
Conclusion: Has the potential to become one of the top vertical threats in the country in a few years, and don't be surprised if he is not used as a kick returner also.
