With so much focus on pass rushers leading up to the NFL draft, interior linebackers sometimes become an afterthought.
That's not the case for LSU linebacker Devin White, though. A physical specimen with tremendous ball skills, the junior has made a case to be the first middle linebacker selected in April's draft.
In 2017, White totaled 133 tackles and 4.5 sacks and followed that up in 2018 with 123 tackles and three sacks, en route to the 2018 Butkus Award, awared to college football's most outstanding linebacker.
"Underrated part of Devin White's game: always goes for the ball," NFL draft analyst Connor Rogers recently tweeted. "LSU defenders are so good at the punch/strip."
