Devin White is an ultra-athletic linebacker who can make plays in the run and passing game. He can be a real force when he is in form and can be a one-man wrecking crew if given the chance to do so. Miami already has enough issues going into this game, so letting him run all over the field making plays is going to exacerbate the issues.
The good thing about White is that he does have a few weaknesses, specifically catching up to speedy receivers on underneath routes. Luckily for the Dolphins, in a game where they don’t match up well on the majority of the field, this will be something they can exploit.
Miami’s offensive scheme has been obnoxiously conservative with a lot of short passes being called hoping to get some rhythm on offense to be able to take some shots downfield. This type of game plan may actually work, however, against White.
If Miami can get Jaylen Waddle and Albert Wilson in space in the middle of the field right in front of White, they may be able to pick up some decent yardage and keep drives alive ultimately running this defense tired. Of course, a lot of other factors need to be taken into consideration like Brissett getting rid of the ball on time and accurately and the receivers actually catching the ball. Yet, it is an area for Miami to focus on offensively if they’re going to keep White on his toes and stand a chance against this Bucs team.
