Scouting Report
White was overshadowed by all-ACC sophomore teammate Brandon Jenkins last season, but that doesn't mean the defensive end won't be worth drafting. White was fifth on Florida State with 64 tackles, and set a career mark with eight sacks, second to Jenkins' 13 1/2. White originally signed with Rutgers but left for Butler Community College in Kansas. In his lone junior college season, he recorded an impressive 24 1/2 sacks and earned national player of the year honors for an unbeaten championship squad. He had 29 tackles in his first season in Tallahassee in 2008, despite playing behind future NFL draft pick and ACC sacks leader Everette Brown. He ranked sixth on the Seminoles with 38 tackles as a junior, recording two sacks. White has a solid, NFL-ready body and had a solid performance at the NFL combine, ranking among the top defensive linemen in the vertical jump and broad jump. However, his health might be a slight concern as he's had to take medication for seizures since the seventh grade. One of those seizures occurred before one of his first practices with the Seminoles in 2008.
