Scouting Report: Strengths
  • White shows good quickness off the line of scrimmage and flashes the violent hands to win around the edge.
  • He’s at his best in coverage. He’s a fluid mover capable of turning and running with tight ends or mirroring backs coming out of the backfield.
  • Can attack the edge with speed and has the flexibility to dip low and under the tackle's reach.
  • He can be used as a rangy run defender inside, instinctive when it comes to locating the ball with the quickness to get to it before blockers can react at the second level.
  • He has ability as a blitzer, with the length and flexibility to get around the edge.
  • Along with great instincts, he’s an explosive mover. White can disrupt plays in the backfield due to his ability to read and react quickly.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Generally an effective openfield tackler but doesn't wrap up consistently. Shows only average awareness in coverage.
  • He’ll also need to be covered in the run game, more of a Will than a Mike in a 4-3 alignment.
  • White lacks the ability to drop weight and anchor against the run, getting manhandled at the point of attack.
