After the Thursday night game against the Carolina Panthers, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers realized Devin White is a star. White left the game early with an MCL sprain. Although his injury is day-to-day, White’s impact on the Buccaneers was apparent.
White is projected to have 64 total tackles as a middle linebacker this season. According to last season’s stats, White would have had the 31st most tackles for a linebacker, top 12% for leading tacklers for linebackers.
With two games down, White has shown the Buccaneers he was worth the fifth overall pick. White’s sideline-to-sideline speed and capability to shed blocks makes him a dangerous threat on every play.
In this article, White will prove his quick run reads, reliable pass reads, and downhill speed.
