Sharod White - WR

 Sharod White Grade: 3.92
 Position: WR
 Class: 5Sr
 School: UAB
 Conference: C-USA
 Ht., Wt.: 6-1.5, 207
 40 Time: 4.45
  Selected by: Atlanta Falcons
  Round 1, pick 27 (27 overall)

BIO: All-Conference selection as a senior after posting numbers of 71/1,452/14, averaging 20.5 yards per reception. Started as both a junior and sophomore totaling 39/844/7 and 39/580/3, respectively.

POSITIVES: Big play receiver with outstanding size/speed numbers. Fluid releasing off the line of scrimmage, quick footed and sells routes. Smooth and looks like he's gliding on the field. Easily adjusts to the deep reception running full speed, displays good eye/hand coordination and makes the difficult over-the-shoulder reception. Runs well laterally, lays out or extends for the difficult grab. Catches the pass away from his frame and effective running after the reception. Elusive, yet at the same time displays the ability to break tackles. Gets vertical to pull the ball out of the air.

NEGATIVES: Not a physical player and shies away from contact. Gives marginal effort blocking. Fast but does not show a second gear.

ANALYSIS: Consistently progressing on the college level, White possesses outstanding potential for the NFL and has all the tools to be a second receiver. Must learn to do the little things well and improve the physical nature of his game. Should be off the board during the second round in April.

PROJECTION: Early Second Round
