Maryland Terrapins receiver Stephon Diggs may have made his way back unto the radar after his injury with a 100-yard game in the Foster Farms Bowl. Lousville Cardinals receiver DeVante Parker, the No. 2 projected receiver by most, did his thing with 120 yards in the Belk Bowl. But to me, Kevin White looked like the best pro prospect at receiver with his excellent hands, height, and ability to blow right by a corner in the Auto Zone Liberty Bowl.

He ate cushions up rather quickly in the process of blowing by defenders to make catches on two bombs thrown his way. On the day, White had seven catches for 129 yards and a 49-yards touchdown to show for one of the bombs he caught. I’m not saying Alabama Crimson Tide receiver Amari Cooper is bad but White just looks more of the part to me as an NFL receiver.
