An NFL team meeting with individual players is a significant part of the draft process. These meetings can happen at the NFL Scouting Combine, pro days, the Senior Bowl or a private workout.
For fans following the process, these meetings are sort of like poker tells for the draft, as they indicate what positions a team could be focusing on. Do teams draft players they haven't met? Yes, they do. It happens all the time, but they have often spoken to other players at that position.
So far, teams have had access to players at the East-West Shrine Game, the Senior Bowl, the combine and now pro days. The Ravens met with Monmouth wide receiver Reggie White Jr. in a private workout. Let's get to know him better.
Tale of the Tape:
Weight: 208 pounds
Strengths: Can beat opposing cornerbacks with his plus athleticism and rise above defenders to grab contested balls; good hands; willing blocker; sells the comeback route well.
Areas for Improvement: Route tree will need work; more of a one-cut-and-go player; must become a more consistent player and not take plays off.
Other Notes: White hails from Randallstown, Md. His father, Reggie White Sr., was a defensive lineman who played for Chargers and Patriots during his NFL career and now coaches Milford Mill. He ran a 4.45-second 40-yard dash and posted a 37.5-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot broad jump and a 6.77-second three-cone drill during his pro day workout. The FCS product finished his college career with 3,373 receiving yards and 31 touchdowns in four seasons, including 1,133 yards and 11 touchdowns on 71 catches as a senior.
Draft Projection: White is a small school developmental prospect who could hear his name in the seventh round of the NFL draft or be a priority UDFA (undrafted free agent).
