Devin White Stats

Very few college players dominated at the linebacker position like Devin White did in the 2018 season. His final collegiate season performance earned him the Butkus Award, which recognizes the best linebacker in the nation. Unlike his former teammate and fellow star defensive prospect Greedy Williams, White opted to play in LSU's 2018 Fiesta Bowl appearance against UCF. After recording a game-high eight solo tackles in a 15-point LSU win, White garnered a lot more draft stock attention from NFL scouts. 


He finished the season with 123 total tackles, 12 tackles for loss, three sacks, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and six passes defended. White is the kind of linebacker who can immediately add to any team that calls his name in this year's draft.

Devin White Draft Predictions

Detroit Lions (No. 8), Carolina Panthers (No. 16), Minnesota Vikings (No. 18)


The Lions have been in dire need of a pass-rushing threat from the linebacker position for multiple seasons. And now that there's a chance Detroit fails to retain Ziggy Ansah this offseason, White is looking more like the best fit at the No. 8 pick for the Lions. 


The Vikings pride themselves on their defense and the Panthers have one of the best linebacker duos in football, but there's still an opening for a player like White. The Vikings may lose Anthony Barr, and the 35-year-old Thomas Davis will likely be moving on from the Panthers soon. If Carolina can add White, the Panthers can likely lock down the best linebacker duo for years to come. If the Vikings can add White, they'll keep the middle of their defense flush with talent.
