Pushing the Pocket - Remembering Kevin White's Value

Kevin White hasn't played since becoming a top-10 pick in the 2015 draft, but that shouldn't stop you from drafting him.

It's been roughly 16 months since Kevin White became a top-10 pick in the 2015 NFL draft. White was the seventh-overall pick of the draft, the second receiver taken after Amari Cooper. The Chicago Bears intended to pair him with Alshon Jeffery to give quarterback Jay Cutler two big-bodied receivers on the outside who could beat opponents in different ways. Unfortunately, 16 months later, White still hasn't stepped on an NFL field.

The rookie suffered a shin injury early in the offseason that eventually led to a stress fracture in training camp. He was placed on the P.U.P. list but may as well have landed on I.R. because he never appeared to come close to a return.

As training camps began this week, White quietly went about his business. The 24-year old is fully healthy now and in line to take his place across from Jeffery in Dowell Loggains offense. Cutler spoke on White this week and hit on a number of key elements for guaging how impactful White can be this year, "He's got a lot of things probably he's processing, thinking through. I think for anybody, taking a year off of football then jumping back into it is going to be hard. As a rookie, missing that vital year where you learn so much that first year and then jumping into your second year, it's a big miss for him." Cutler also spoke about White's potential and work rate, but that was the key sentence.
