TCU cornerback Kevin White is getting recognized for all the right reasons so far at the Senior Bowl.
He has put together three consecutive practices in which he has displayed skills that should translate to the next level. He is somewhat undersized for the pros, however, has played with sound technique and has recovery speed to break up passes.
White understands the importance this week can have in improving his draft stock, of course, and is taking full advantage of it.
“It’s way important,” said White, who has been training and preparing for the NFL draft in California since TCU’s season ended.
“This is the first time a lot of these GMs and coaches see us play this close up, so it’s a great opportunity.”
White is the only TCU player expected to play in the actual game, as his teammate and offensive tackle Tayo Fabuluje is sidelined with a hip injury.
White, along with the rest of the players, are also spending this week by meeting with several teams. White said he had a brief meeting with the Cowboys, a team that could certainly be looking for cornerback depth in the draft.
Asked what it would mean to play for the Cowboys, White said: “It’d be great, staying in the state of Texas. It would be a lot of fun.”
For now, though, he’s just looking to continue to build his stock and is ready to go to whatever team takes him.
