However, he isn't the most instinctive defensive lineman and has a tough time getting off the snap count consistently on time. Exhibits natural power for his size and has some lateral quickness, as he displays the ability to work the inside jab step and explode outside toward the edge.
Nevertheless, he just isn't a real savvy pass rusher at this stage. Fails to consistently get his hands up into blocks, seems to get upright and overextended anytime he tries to change directions on a counter and just needs a lot of polish to his game, as he too often plays out of control.
Isn't real instinctive vs. the run game either. Routinely takes a false step when asked to find the football, taking himself out of plays and sealing himself from the ball. Isn't real stout at the point of attack, can be handled by the tight end when run at and doesn't use his hands well enough to stack and shed when run at.
Impression: The physical and athletic skill set is definitely there, as the guy showcases the ability to consistently create pressure, despite some real shortcomings at this stage from a technique standpoint. Has never really taken that next step, but is an intriguing guy because of his upside."
Positive: Underrated college pass rusher who can line up at defensive end or stand up over tackle. Athletic, gets off the snap with a terrific first step, and easily changes direction, making plays in every area of the field. Bends his knees, plays with leverage and shows explosiveness in his game. Uses his hands to protect himself, constantly doubled by opponents, and works hard to get involved. Displays the ability to pursue from all angles.
Negative: Struggles getting off blocks and can be controlled by tight ends. Possesses just a short burst of speed.
Analysis: White is a prototypical Florida State defensive end in that he's undersized yet explosive and fierce up the field. He's underrated in many corners of the scouting community but has the size and skill to be given looks as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 system at the next level."
Negatives: Not very explosive... Does not anticipate the snap count very well... Marginal arsenal of moves... Not very violent... Overruns the pocket... Can be pushed past the action... Loses containment too often... Does not play to his weight room strength... Stamina issues, wears down toward the end of games... Did not enroll with Rutgers in 2006 due to academic issues, started his career at the junior college level, will be 24 by draft day."
Weaknesses: Slightly over-aged guy who never quite lived up to his billing that followed him from junior college to FSU. Will have a leaning curve. Not the most explosive off the ball. Doesn't protect his legs. Gets tired, and less effective (or seemingly so) lat in some contests. Not overly driven. lacks variety in his pass rush. Prefers the straight-line approach.
Projection: 4-6th rounder based solely on his ability to rush the passer."
In 2009 Everette Brown was off in the NFL and White stepped into a starting role. He did not turn into a major threat to pick up many sacks, but White did develop into a solid run stuffer. With a new defensive scheme, White would be asked to continue to stuff the run from his left defensive end position, but also apply more pressure to the quarterback. That is exactly what he has done. Through nine games he already has a career high 42 tackles and has added 8.5 tackles-for-loss and 5.5 sacks.
White may not even be the most talented defensive end on his team, but he is relatively experienced and a solid athlete. NFL teams would like to see him add some more strength and weight to his 6-4 frame. White has decent speed, but not enough to make up for his lack of size and that will keep him down in the later rounds."
