During NFL Draft season a lot gets made of a player’s measurables; their height, their weight and their speed. One thing that tends to get lost in the shuffle and overlooked, but is more meaningful than all those measurables is production.
For Western Michigan WR Jordan White all he did was produce throughout his career. His numbers this year look like something out of a video game; 140 receptions-1911 yards-17 touchdowns.
Those numbers are tough to comprehend, especially considering he put them up in only 13 games. It’s even more impressive when you consider the fact that everyone on the defense knew where the ball was going and they still couldn’t stop White.
Jordan White is a player who is easy to root for. He has overcome not one, but two torn ACL ligaments to become the most prolific wide receiver in MAC history. In my interview with White we speak about his combine experience, what it took to overcome those injuries and what he is working on between now and the draft.
I must say that speaking with White it’s clear to see why he such a productive player. His understanding over the game is evident, he understands coverages and how to get open. While he is not the biggest, strongest or fastest WR, he is the most productive and someone I will be rooting for while watching the draft.
