Recently did an awesome interview with WR, Jordan White. He wasn't shy, and we talked about a variety of things. NY Jets drafted him 244th overall today. Jordan White is going to be a stud at the next level.

I recently did an interview with the All MAC, and All-American WR, out of Western Michigan, Jordan White. (The other WR out of Western Michigan that you may know is... Packers Greg Jennings). Even with his numbers, and the film, he still is projected a sixth round pick.
In 2010: 94 receptions, 1378 yards, 10 TDs. In 2011: 140 receptions, 1911 yards, 17 TDs.
When asked to compare his game to someone in the NFL today...
I’d say probably the closest player that I play like is Anquan Boldin. I’d even go as far as saying even though he’s very underrated, Derrick Mason. From his route running, and he’s had a number of thousand yard seasons, but often times, he gets overlooked because he may not be one of those big household names, but he’s always successful year in and year out. The same with me as I might not get as much as exposure or as much credit as some of these other guys do, but I’m always producing. That’s what I’ve always done. I think Coach Campbell who played at Michigan State, our DB coach, said that I reminded him of Derrick Mason, because of his route running ability and his craftiness in the slot and outside the slot. So I think that would be my best comparison would be an Anquan Boldin, Wes Welker, and Derrick Mason mix.
When asked about being the best route runner in the NCAA last season. White said,
I think I was easily. Honestly, I think I was. It’s no disrespect to anybody else, but I think that’s something I’ve prided myself in more and more over the years was my craft at route running because I’m not the biggest or fastest or the strongest. If I can be deceptive with my routes and run routes at a certain level, then I’ll be successful.
