[QUOTE=DDNYjets;4491748]Wow. Even the late rounds are slotted like that? I knew the early picks were slotted, didn't think it applied to all rounds.
Anyways, good for him. Hopefully we get to see him contribute this year.[/QUOTE]
This guys was extremely productive in college and Rex/Sparano/Lal must think he'll be a good option for Sanchez (prolly safety valve) in the pros.

Good on the young man[/QUOTE]
One of the main reasons why he went so late during the draft, was because of his age due to the fact that he spent 6 years in college.
Had his breakout season back in 2010 putting up 1,378 yards receiving, which broke his single-season school record set two years prior by Jamarko Simmons. Last year he pretty much exploded. Caught a career high 16 passes for 238 yards against Toledo. I'd like to go back and watch that game (Youtube maybe)? Sounds like one hell of a performance though. White had 127 receptions for 1,646 yards last season, ranking first among NCAA Division I FBS players in both categories. He also led the FBS with averages of 10.57 receptions per game and 137.17 receiving yards per game.
He may have played for a small program, but sounds like we've landed a potentially strong value pick during the 7th round, due to the fact that White stayed in school for 6 years.
