Kyzir White is an unheralded player from West Virginia and he could end up being a solid player in the NFL. He did well at the Senior Bowl and had a strong week of practice and did a lot to work himself into the conversation as a Day 2 pick.
White only played two seasons at West Virginia, but he vastly improved during his final season for the Mountaineers. He totaled 94 tackles with 7.5 tackles for loss and three picks. He demonstrated above average tackling ability and held up in coverage as well. For the next level, he is a well-rounded player.
NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein listed White as a potential Round 3-4 pick, and said the following about his leadership and ability to be a combination player at the next level.
"Like his brothers who also attended West Virginia, White was a late bloomer who was lightly recruited and began his journey at Lackawanna Junior College. Despite being a JUCO transfer, White has become a highly-respected team leader who leads by example with his fearless, physical play. Teams are looking to transition him into a hybrid role with the ability to cover tight ends like a safety and support the run like a linebacker. While he’s nothing special as an athlete, his competitiveness and play-demeanor should earn him a spot as a starter."
This type of hybrid player would be a smart add by the Redskins, as they might be looking to add a combination player in the wake of Su’a Cravens’ departure. The problem is that White may go in Round 3, so it could be hard for the team to land him. That’s why he’s a bit lower than the other options on the list. Because he’s not as realistic of a potential pick.
