2015 NFL Draft: Chicago Bears Select WR Kevin White

With the seventh pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Chicago Bears select Kevin White out of West Virginia.

Position: Wide Receiver

Measurables: 6’3”, 215 lbs, 32 ⅝” arm length, 9 ¼” hands


White’s senior season in Morgantown was one to remember, as he posted 109 receptions (3rd in the nation) and 1,447 receiving yards (6th) to earn a spot as one of three finalists for the Biletnikoff Award (best receiver). White started 22 of his 24 career games at West Virginia and set a school record in 2014 with seven-straight 100-yard receiving games to start the season.

Possessing a prototypical NFL frame for a wide receiver, White went from being a liability who struggled with drops in 2013 to becoming one of the most sure-handed wideouts in the nation in 2014. His elite inside release cuts through press coverage like a knife, and his combination of straight-line speed (4.35-second 40-yard dash at the Combine) and power (23 bench reps) has some NFL scouts projecting him as the best receiver in a deep 2015 class.
