Kevin White wasn’t necessarily a guy that was a lock to be taken among the top 15 a year ago, but after a sensational senior season at West Virginia in 2014, it’s hard to see him going anywhere but inside the top five. White blew up in 2014, hauling in 109 receptions and putting up over 1,400 receiving yards. Blessed with a great combination of size and speed, White combines with Amari Cooper to produce a very top-heavy wide receiver class that rivals the one we saw just a few years ago with Julio Jones and A.J. Green. Let’s break down White’s game to see what makes him so good:

School: West Virginia

Height: 6’3″

Weight: 215 lbs

40 Time: 4.35

Strengths

  • Exceptional frame at 6’3 215, combined with more than ideal straight line speed.

  • Shows the ability to catch the ball at its highest point and does great job with 50/50 balls.

  • Solid run blocker down field, although can be inconsistent.

  • Strong hands can bring down passes even with hands in his face.

  • Played well against all competition, good and bad.

  • RAC ability among highest in 2015 draft for pass catchers.

Weaknesses

  • Sometimes tends to let up on a play, seemingly believing a pass to be uncatchable.

  • Less physical with safeties down field who get their hands on him.

  • Could afford to have quicker feet in and out of his breaks.

  • Wasn’t challenged much in press due to speed, and could be more physical off the line.
