The first West Virginia Mountaineer picked during the 2015 NFL Draft will likely be wide receiver, Kevin White.

White played two seasons with the Mountaineers as a JUCO transfer. In his junior season in 2013, White made 35 catches for 507 total yards and five touchdowns. However, in his 2014 senior season in Morgantown, Kevin blew away coaches, scouts, and most notably opposing secondary's when he recorded 109 catches for 1,447 yards and 10 touchdowns.

White's impact on the field wasn't just with the stats he put up. Kevin often times caused havoc with opponents secondaries to the point it seemed he would get a passer interference called every time the ball was thrown his way. Through Week 7, White had drawn 11 pass interference calls on defenders. He is seen a a battler.

At the NFL Combine he ran a 4.35 40-yard dash, which earned him a big bonus from Adidas as one of the top three fastest Adidas sponsored athletes in the 40-yard dash. He also pumped out 23 reps on the bench press, which proves just how strong he really is. Finally, his vertical jump was 36.5 inches.

The 6'3" 215 pound, Plainfield, New Jersey native is expected to go in the top 10 picks in this years draft.
