White didn’t get much burn in the second half with both teams in the Senior Bowl rotating players at a premium. However, he did rip off his longest carry (18 yards) of the afternoon in the second half and finished the game with 52 yards, which led all players.
The week of practice was vital for prospects looking to improve their draft stock and White was able to show off his speed, as well as his pass protection skills.
