Build

Does he have prototype size? What is body type? What is growth potential?

Rachaad White has a strong build and could add more weight. Good size for the position although he doesn't always use it well. From top to bottom he has the appearance of strength. Redshirt senior that did not get reps until 2020 and dealt with minor injuries during past season.

Grade 7.0

Mental

Is he instinctual? Does he play with urgency?

Shows patience and vision behind the LOS but can struggle when design breaks down or lane isn't given to him. Second level vision deteriorates. Shows ability to find holes behind LOS but works best in scheme, on schedule. Shows consistent fight and eager to pick up extra yards post contact.

Athleticism

Does he have the athletic traits you want?

Doesn't win with long speed and has limited explosion in between tackles and up field. Can show plant burst when he fully commits to the plant and sinks in his cuts. Lighter feet than anticipated which allows him to be active but limits his explosion by stiffness. Shows adequate contact balance but runs very high on the majority of the reps. Balance through the LOS is best, but at the second level can be tripped up easily.

Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

Lacks MYM ability in open space and will grind for yards over avoiding contact. Opens himself up greatly to hit at the second level. Quick feet allow him to change direction behind LOS. Not an overly physical runner which limits his ability running inside but doesn't have proper burst and elusiveness when running outside zone. Soft hands in the passing game, with natural pass catching athleticism. Can turn up field but doesn't have gears to kick into.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Rachaad White transferred from JUCO (Mt. San Antonio College) to ASU in 2019. White gained the starting role this past season in an offense that did not rely on the RB rush. As the season progressed, ASU relied more on him as a runner. He has seen time on special teams as well as a returner. White is well built head to toe and has good size for the position but is an adequate athlete due to his COD and lack of explosive. Does not win by cutting off pursuit angles with his long speed and lacks much explosion. Behind the LOS, he shows patience and good vision but struggles to create outside of structure and at the second level. Surprising light feet but needs to improve flexibility to improve shift. Quick to find holes and shows good quickness getting to the second level. Good balance through the LOS. Struggles to create outside of what is given to him due to lack of power and MYM ability. In the passing game he shows soft hands and fluid movement. White has a lot of upside if he is able to improve his flexibility and bend. He will be able to sink more in and out of his cuts, contribute on 3rd down as a pass protector/receiver and could compete on ST as well.
