Kevin White, WR

College team: West Virginia

Size: 6′ 3″, 215lbs

Speed: 40yd-4.35, 10yd-1.53

Measurements: Arms-32 and 5/8″, Hands-9 and 1/4″

Kevin White had a dynamic senior season at WVU. He had 109 catches with 1447 yards receiving. That was his showcase season as he had 35 receptions for 507 yards in his only other season at WVU.

White flashes greatness at times and may be the first receiver taken in the draft. His competition is Amari Cooper who faced a much stronger schedule in the SEC. Cooper also had 2 and 1/2 great seasons to just one for White.

White is tall and has a great receiver body


White is tall and has a great receiver body. He is great at positioning his body to make the reception over the defender. White has outstanding leaping ability and is able to easily catch jump balls over defensive backs.

White has speed and is able to get separation late on deep passes or intermediate routes. He displays quickness in and out of routes. He also has good strength even with his slender frame.


White didn’t face many NFL level defensive backs. He needs to show that he can be a consistent performer and avoid the dropped passes that plagued him in his junior season. He also needs a lot more repetitions to improve his technique.

As with most college wideouts and many in the NFL as well, White needs to work on his blocking. Although he has great speed, he doesn’t always use it well. White needs work on his suddenness and getting a quicker start at the snap.

White would be the Redskins top red zone threat

Redskins fit:

White would be the Redskins top red zone threat. His size and leaping ability are better than anyone currently on the Redskins roster. He isn’t a good enough all around WR to replace either Pierre Garcon or DeSean Jackson in 2015 however.

White would not make a good slot receiver and if he was in the 3 WR sets for the Redskins, Jackson or Andre Roberts would need to be the slot WR. White, like Cooper, would probably force either Garcon or Jackson out the door in 2016.
