Summary

The Bucs' first round pick in this year's NFL Draft is the classic seek and destroy linebacker, capable of becoming a tone-setter with a single hit. Devin White should immediately slot in alongside Lavonte David as inside linebackers in Todd Bowles' 3-4 scheme, forming one of the most formidable pairings in the league. White is built to shut down the speed and quickness-based offenses that have become commonplace in the modern NFL. In training camp, some have said White 'looks like a cornerback' in coverage, such is his smoothness as an athlete. He is a top-12 linebacker in all formats - and his upside is a top five player at his position. (August 10)
