Devin White, 21, was a tackle machine at LSU and shapes up as one of the top linebackers in the draft along with Devin Bush. White got home to the quarterback 7.5 times over the past two seasons with three forced fumbles as a junior, when he was also the SEC tackles leader. Was a team captain, team MVP and first-team All-American. Profiles as a 3-down linebacker with equal prowess against the pass and run. Reportedly has one of the highest football IQs of any draft-eligible linebacker.

What the analysts say

“Running back convert out of high school who continues to show rapid development as a high-impact linebacker in a physical conference. White is still learning to take on blocks and play with better control/efficiency, but he’s a willing pupil and coaching should improve both areas. White’s work ethic, competitiveness, and rare play speed are elements that can’t be taught and should push him into an early starter’s role and a successful NFL career.” – Lance Zierlein, NFL.com

“White has all the physical attributes to be a dynamic playmaker at the next level. His burst, play strength, size and aggressive mentality are exciting traits but he does need more work on the mental side of the game to make an impact. While strides were made when comparing his 2017 film to 2018, there are still too many processing errors that take him out of plays. In addition, White is inconsistent sifting through traffic and with his technique for taking on blocks. If he can become a better processor with better spatial awareness, White can be an every down star in the NFL.” – Joe Marino, The Draft Network
