Concerns

Kevin White is a difficult prospect to analyze. He only has one season of production to dig down on. Sometimes prospects with one season of production don’t explode in the fashion some see. White suffers from dropsies from time to time. He can also struggle against press coverage. Boxing out defenders when making plays on the ball can be a challenge for White from time to time. 

Kyle’s Instant Analysis

Kevin White is a physical freak that explodes off of the game tape. He has the ability to make plays all over the field. He has the speed to run away from defenders and the size to run them over. The concern comes with his one year of production. He had to work incredibly hard to earn his opportunity at West Virginia. Due to this fact, he should be driven to work at the level in order to stay there. Massive potential is here for this prospect.
