No. 2 Kevin White Stats

98 catches 1,270 yards 13 ypc 9 touchdowns 11 games

Why he’s this high

At 6’3″, 210 pounds, Kevin White has great hands and can do all the high pointing and bully balling Parker and Strong can do. He’s a good route runner too but what separates him from Parker and Strong is his speed and ability to run after the catch. And right now he sits at No. 4 in receiving yards and No. 3 in receiving touchdowns for the production side of things.

Why he’s not No. 1

White can run and run routes but he’s not going to spin NFL corners around nor will he simply run by them. He’ll make his share of big plays and get wide open as a result of running a good route but catch balls in traffic a lot. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with catching balls in traffic but to be the best prospect coming out, you have to be electric.
