Without the luxury of having a marquee running back in this year's draft class, a lot of talented prospects could see their stock tumble into the latter rounds.
Wisconsin running back James White is one of those guys.
An "undersized" tailback who runs with a low center of gravity, as Greg A. Bedard of MMQB.com points out, the 5'9" White reminds him of Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin.
When you put on the tape, you understand why.
White has consistently shown great vision and the patience needed to find running lanes. His impressive lateral movement and willingness to step up and hit somebody in pass protection makes him a complete football player.
But like every prospect who comes along, there are always questions to be answered.
Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel wrote that one reason White being overlooked this year is because, "The perception that Wisconsin running backs benefit from an NFL line is often reality."
Well aware of the narrative surrounding Wisconsin running backs, White told Dunne:
In today's game, running backs have to be able to do it all. They have to catch the ball out of the backfield and pass protect. I feel I can do those things and do those things pretty well. I came out here this week and tried to show that.
In the end, the tape doesn't lie. White is an ultra-talented player who currently is being labeled as a fifth-round pick.
If that projection holds up, the Jaguars would be crazy to not to take a chance on this young man.
