Miami Dolphins NFL Draft Prospect: WR Kevin White


With WR Mike Wallace‘s future uncertain, the Miami Dolphins may need to turn to the draft to find their new number one receiver. If Wallace left, the Dolphins would be left with two number 2 receivers, namely Brian Hartline and Jarvis Landry, and would like that deep threat or big bodies go-to target for QB Ryan Tannehill.

But then there is West Virginia’s Kevin White.  At 6 foot 3, 210 pounds, Kevin White would already be one of Miami’s bigger receivers, not to mention the fact that White has been video’d completing a 54 inch box jump.  He has the perfect frame for the NFL, and has the proper mechanics to succeed at the next level.  He catches the ball at the highest point, making it virtually impossible for a defensive back to defend him on a jump ball.

  • He would instantly become a go-to redzone target for the ‘Phins, something Tannehill has yet to have in his career in Miami.  Heck, White may honestly help Tannehill’s deep ball problems.  He runs and fights for every ball, and has made even the worst throws look good with his athletic ability and hands.

    White’s weaknesses are that he is not a fantastic blocker, and he struggles to get past initial contact at the line of scrimmage.  That being said, his explosiveness after the catch have given White NFL comparisons to DeAndre Hopkins.

    The question is will White be available when Miami selects at 14?  The answer is uncertain.  Many mocks have him going top 10 to top 12, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see White fall to Miami at 14, especially with Devante Parker also in the mix at receiver.  Now Miami taking White is a whole different story.  A lot of which depends on who is still undrafted when the Dolphins pick, and if a certain #11 is still on the team or not.  Wherever White goes, I have him pegged as an early Offensive Rookie of the Year candidate.
