How can anyone not like this kid? I know some have been skeptical due to his coverage, but I have had nothing but an impression that he was a stud for over a year now. It’s insane how quick and sudden he is, and his tackling skills are ELITE. I never see anyone break a tackle on this kid. Not only that, but players only go backwards when he hits them, he never lets them get even another inch forward
This kid is going to be a defensive player of the year at some point, book it.
Not to mention that the mic’d up shows he has a swagger that is going to uplift all of those around him and make it tough for offensive players to want to play against us. Seems like he was in Alvin Kamara’s head. Not sure we win that game Sunday if he still wasn’t back from covid protocol
Bobby Wagner is a more complete LB. that said, I still would pick White in a 2019 re-draft. I don’t think he’s reached his ceiling yet.
White is early in his progression. He’s really good at some things and elite in his skill and effort. But undeniably he is below average in coverage.
If Josh Allen the QB can make the leap he did, I hope with White’s focus and determination he can make that same kind of leap. But I’m Afraid he is sipping his own koolaid a little bit and not fully recognizing his deficiencies in pass pro. I hope I’m wrong.
Gotta back it up with top notch play, but you can see what Arians was talking about after they drafted him
“He loves it. You know, you get these guys once in a lifetime. They all got physical skills, but they don’t love it. I mean, they wouldn’t do it for free. This cat would do it for free as long as he can ride his horses”
Stud. He has plenty of DOG in him.. As said above, he hasn’t hit his potential yet! Hopefully his coverage skills are actually improving, and it’s not a fluke. This season is so important to all of our young Bucs. The big game experience they’re all gaining is invaluable! Let’s just hope they get to play in their first Super Bowl!
