Kevin White 6-3 210 Sr Wr West Virginia
He began his college career at Lackawanna Jr College. After two seasons he transferred to West Virginia. He had a breakout season as a senior for the Mountaineers ,catching over a hundred passes for over 1300 yards.
He has a tall,lean, athletic frame. He shows the ability to get off the line of scrimmage quickly. He can get off close and press coverage and has tremendous short area quickness. He can make quick moves after release and accelerate to top speed extremely quickly ,and blow by defenders. He can also use his short area quickness to set up the defender and gain seperation. He does a great job of selling the vertical route and then changing directions and making the comeback, dig, and out routes look easy. He is a very smooth athlete and route runner.
On deep passes he shows the ability to locate the ball, adjust, take some contact, and get the ball at it’s highest point. He shows very good body control and is able to make a play after the catch as well.
On short to intermediate routes he shows the ability to make the catch, slip a tackle, turn upfield, accelerate quickly and gain yards after the catch.
As a blocker he shows good effort and the ability to break down a defender, use his hands and proper technique and sustain the block on the edge to open up lanes.
Kevin White had a huge breakout season this year. He should destroy the combine in height, weight, speed, and agility drills. He has tremendous athleticism and potential. He is an all around wideout who not only stretches the field vertically, but can pick up chunks of yardage on short to intermediate routes and gain yards after the catch. He has the occasional dropped pass, but overall uses his hands to snatch the ball out of the air and make moves up field in stride. He is a big time prospect and should be one of the first wide receivers off the board.
