    Wide Receiver
    6'2 | 205 | 4.45*

    HOME TOWN: Charleston, SC
    HIGH SCHOOL: St.James Island

    *Estimated 40 time, AP Photo QUICK STRENGTHS: Speed, Size
    QUICK WEAKNESSES: Release, Routes
    NFL COMPARISONS: Big guy who has lots of talent, but just needs some polish much like the Buccaneers' Charles Lee.
    One of UAB's all time leading receivers, White has played a role since his true freshman season for the Blazers when he was also used as a return man. Became the full time starter as a sophomore and started there all the way through his senior season.
    White is a big, sturdy target who has been productive throughout his collegiate career. For a bigger target, he has really good deep speed. He doesn't have the quickest first step, but once he gets going, he's able to run by defenders. When the ball is in the air, the does a nice job of going after it and he catches the ball with his hands. He does have some moments where his focus wanes and he'll drop a ball, but for the most part, his hands are solid. One area where he can improve is route running, his routes tend to be a little sloppy and he could work on sharpening his breaks. His release is only average for a player his size, and he needs to do a better with his hands and with getting off the line quicker. He has great strength and downfield blocking should be one area that he excels in, although he doesn't always dominate his man like he is capable of doing.
    White has the tools to be a real surprise come draft time. He has the size and speed that NFL teams look for. If he catches the ball consistently in pre-draft workouts, he'll have a chance to move up. At the moment, he's a 4th/5th Round prospect.

    I really hadn't paid much attention to White before reading about the Cowboys' interest, but now that I've taken a look at him, I like what I'm seeing... however, this projection that has him going in the 4th or 5th round seems to be obsolete, more recent projections have him going in the 2nd round, and some have him slipping into the first...

    I think I'd take a look at him if he's still on the board when the Boys' 2nd round pick comes around... I'm sure the bit about him being a good downfield blocker plays into Parcells' interest in him... I've also seen some scouting reports that have his 40 time in the 4.4 range... it'll be interesting to see what kind of time he runs at the combine...

    Thus far the 3 articals I have seen about Cowboys meeting with players has consisted of 2 WR and a DT. This could very well tell you what Dallas is looking at in this upcoming draft.

    Don't forget LB. I also think WR will be addressed higher than most predict. If Williams or Edwards fall to our first pick I fully expect WR to be the first player we take.

    I agree LB will be another area, not sure if that will be in the draft or FA. Heck it could be both

    Everyone keeps saying LB... I'm not convinced that linebacker was our biggest problem on defense... by far.

    2nd round pick for a WR with a slow first step? No thanks.

    with great strength but can't use his hands. Runs sloppy routes and can't get off the line. Fast but not a quick starter.Am I supposed to like this guy more or less after reading this?

    Speaking of Rowdy Roddy Piper, I saw him in some D movie on the weekend. He played some alien who was killing people.

    There was actually a good fight scene in that movie when Roddy was trying to get the guy to put the sunglasses on.

    South park recreated that scene in the episode where Timmy and the other handicapped kid fought. They use the same exact moves and dialogue :D
