Mel Kieper on LenDale White
Q: If he declares, where will USC junior running back LenDale White end up being drafted? ? Bill, Plymouth, Minn.
I'd say late first round if he enters the draft. Reggie Bush obviously will go first or second overall, and Memphis running back DeAngelo Williams will be in that first-round mix as well. If White is the second-highest-rated running back behind Bush, he could go early to middle of the first round.
A lot would depend on his workouts, too. White is a big running back (6-2, 235), but if he runs a great 40 time, he could catapult up in the first round. Best-case scenario for White is early to middle of the first round, but right now I'm thinking more the latter part of the opening round.
(Latter part of the first round...that's interesting!)
