White's ability as a lead blocker and special teams performer will get him a look at the NFL level. With the traditional fullback role nearing extinction, however, White will struggle to find a niche.

He did not have a single carry the past two seasons with the Buckeyes, so he is traditional fullback type in every sense of the word. However, coach Jim Tressel said last season that White's versatility as an adequate receiver was key because it prevented defenses from knowing exactly what the Buckeyes would run when he was in the game.

Tressel also considered White an excellent role model for the team's younger players.


Positives: All-American bloodlines (father is former Ohio State linebacker Stan White, who played for the Baltimore Colts). Graduated early and enrolled in graduate school. Good runner and receiver who came to Ohio State as a linebacker, moved to tight end and then settled at fullback. Cerebral lead blocker. Knows his assignments and those of all others on the offense. Rare size for the position. Physical at the point of attack. Rarely used as a receiver, but shows soft hands and understands route-running. Good overall athleticism for the position. Standout special teams performer.

Negatives: One-dimensional fullback used almost entirely as a human battering ram. Caught a career-high eight passes in 2006 for a total of 57 yards. Started each of the past two seasons for the Buckeyes at fullback, yet leaves with zero rushing attempts.
