Wisconsin Badgers running back James White was picked Saturday in the fourth round of the NFL Draft, going to the New England Patriots with the 130th overall pick.
White ran for 1,444 yards and 13 touchdowns, averaging 6.5 yards per carry for the Badgers, and also caught 39 balls for 300 yards and two scores.
Through all of that, White rushed for 4,015 yards and 45 touchdowns as a Badger, averaging 6.2 yards per carry.
However, Scouts Inc., seriously downgraded White for a perceived lack of power and balance, saying that he has trouble picking up yards after contact.
He could also play on special teams for New England—he returned 40 kickoffs in his career at Wisconsin.
At a shade taller than 5-foot-9 and 204 pounds, his frame is considered a concern when it comes to projecting his durability. With a 4.57 40-yard dash time, his speed is adequate for the position.
