Strong Points

Very good size. Has a strong arm and throws a tight ball. White is a four-year starter who has played at two different schools. Good athlete and shows the ability to extend plays with his mobility. Put up some huge numbers in 2017.

Weak Points

Plays mainly in a RPO (run-pass option) offense. Though he completed 65 percent of his throws this year, his ball placement needs improvement. Takes a lot of sacks and hits. Doesn't have a good feel for pass rushers, and you seldom see him step up and throw. Has shown a tendency to hold onto the ball too long.

The Way We See It

Fifth-year senior and a four-year starter, White began his career at South Florida and transferred after two seasons to Western Kentucky. Had to sit out the 2015 season as a transfer. Production and numbers vastly improved while at WKU, but the offense had something to do with it. Has the size and arm talent that teams covet but is still a long way away. Lacks top instincts and pocket presence and doesn't have a good feel for pass rushers. Will often bail instead of stepping up and making the throw. Flashes top accuracy but needs to improve his footwork to consistently harness it. More of a developmental prospect and might never become a starter, but he will get drafted because of his natural traits.
