2. Rachaad White, Arizona State
White took a different route to the pros than the aforementioned James Cook but they both possess similar skill sets that will make GM’s glamour come April. White enjoyed some time at the JUCO ranks before arriving on campus and quickly became a star for the Sun Devils. White’s numbers were off the charts at the combine as the 6’0, 214 pound Kansas City native ran a 4.48, recorded a 38″ vertical which was third of running backs while his 10’5″ broad wasn’t too shabby.
White really excels as a pass-catching as he has wide receiver-like qualities with how he catches the ball and runs routes. White isn’t a power runner but has a variety of moves and hits the hole in a hurry with an impressive burst. White averaged over 11 yards per play in only four games in 2020 and totaled over 1,400-yards and 16-touchdowns with a full season of work this past fall. The ASU product is flying under the radar but is one of the best running backs in this class and could be a real steal if he falls down the board.
Atlanta would be the perfect fit for Rachaad if he does fall down the board and give Mike Davis some competition for the second running back role if Atlanta keeps Davis on the roster. Coming off of a very rough year it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Falcons opt to move on from the veteran at some point this off-season.
