Player Outlook
The Bucs may have themselves a nifty prospect in the former Arizona State rusher. A 22-year-old breakout, White totaled over 1,400 total yards and 16 touchdowns last year for the Sun Devils, including 43 receptions. White has good elusiveness and lateral agility to avoid tackles and clearly is capable in the passing game, but his speed is only solid and he's not yet a powerful player, though he isn't afraid of contact at all. He's got a chance to develop into the Bucs' top running back as soon as 2023, if not sooner depending on how Leonard Fournette does. You may see and hear more about White this preseason, likely putting him in position to be a late-round pick with nice upside in seasonal formats. Look for White to get picked between 10th and 18th overall in rookie-only drafts, too.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Posts 88 all-purpose yards in debut

    White rushed seven times for 32 yards, brought in two of three targets for 13 yards and returned two kickoffs for 43 yards in the Buccaneers' 26-24 preseason loss to the Dolphins on Saturday night. White was the third running back into the game for the Buccaneers behind Giovani Bernard and Ke'Shawn Vaughn, and he outproduced the latter by four yards with three fewer touches from scrimmage. White, a third-round rookie, gave a rock-solid accounting of himself in his first taste of NFL action, even flashing nicely on special teams with a 26-yard kickoff return. White and Vaughn will continue their summer battle for the No. 2 running back job in next Saturday night's preseason road matchup against the Titans.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Impresses in first week of camp

    White has stood out over the first week of training camp with his size and sure hands, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. The rookie third-round pick is competing with Ke'Shawn Vaughn for the No. 2 running back job this summer, and thus far, it appears White may have the upper hand. The Arizona State alum's early success as a receiver isn't a surprise by any stretch when considering he contributed a 43-456-1 line through the air across 11 games during his final season with the Sun Devils. Given Tom Brady's extensive track record of successfully utilizing pass-catching running backs, that trait could serve White especially well in the job battle.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Could make sizable rookie impact

    White's versatile skill set could allow him to enjoy a sizable role during his rookie season, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports. "He's a good talent, that's why we drafted him," Bucs coach Todd Bowles said. "Leonard is our starter, obviously. We look for White to compete with Vaughn and Gio and we'll see from there. ... He has good size. He has good feet and good speed. But he's capable of spelling Leonard, he's capable of catching a ball." The investment of a third-round pick in White already speaks to the belief the Buccaneers have in his ability, and both the Arizona State product's college body of work and Bowles' comments indicate there could be plenty of opportunity for him behind lead back Leonard Fournette. With Ronald Jones now in Kansas City and Giovani Bernard primarily suited for a pass-catching/third-down role, White's primary competition for any complementary early-down reps appears to be Ke'Shawn Vaughn, who's yet to establish himself after being taken in the third round in his own right in 2020. White's pass-catching chops also could be a significant factor in earning snaps, with running backs coach Todd McNair noting the rookie's range and catch radius are particularly impressive.

  • Buccaneers' Rachaad White: Links up with Tampa Bay

    The Buccaneers selected White in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 91st overall. Ronald Jones' departure in free agency put Tampa Bay in the market for a running back and White is a solid value at this stage of the draft. White has a good frame at 6-foot, 214 pounds but he can get in trouble by running upright at times. Still, that didn't stop him from ripping off chunk yardage during his time at Arizona State. It's a small, two-year sample, but White averaged 6.4 yards per carry over 224 career attempts and ran for 20 scores. He was efficient as a pass-catcher, too, reeling in 51 of 58 targets for 607 yards and two touchdowns. He doesn't have blazing speed (4.48), but it's enough at 214 pounds, and his strong scores in the jumps mean that he has good anchor and burst. Tampa Bay has struggled to find good running backs through the draft in recent years, but perhaps White can buck the trend and secure a role ahead of Ke'Shawn Vaughn.
