ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay called Bills fifth-round pick Johnny White the biggest sleeper in the draft class.
“One of the most underrated players regardless of position in this year’s draft is Johnny White from North Carolina,” said McShay. ”He played different positions early in his career and was a defensive back and moved him to a wide receiver role and they tinkered with him. He’s a little over 5’10” and a little over 200 pounds. Your average NFL size for a back.
“He has quickness and that lateral agility and the ability to make the sharp cuts and explode. He has tremendous ball skills and if you’re not going to be a starter right away as a running back you’ve got to contribute on third down and you’ve got to contribute on special teams. Johnny White can catch the ball as well as any back in this class and is very productive as a return specialist. I think he has a lot of upside in that regard.”
