Speaking to James Hill today at the senior bowl, Georgia Tech DL Keion White confirmed that he has met with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the senior bowl. White is a player who has gained a lot of interest in recent weeks and was even mocked to the Buccaneers in the first round of the NFL Draft by ESPN’s Mel Kiper. White has shown good pass-rushing ability so far in the senior bowl and is looking to improve his draft stock with a strong showing.
There would certainly be a need for White for the Buccaneers as they are set to lose a good portion of their pass rush in free agency with Anthony Nelson, Carl Nassib, Genard Avery, Will Gholston, and Akiem Hicks all with expiring contracts this year. White would provide a versatile defensive player that can both on the line and standing up as an EDGE rushing linebacker. Bucs head coach Todd Bowles enjoys a great amount of versatility in his defense and White would certainly fit that mold. White would add yet another young developmental defensive player to go along with linebacker Joe Tryonj-Shoyinka and defensive lineman Logan Hall to set the Bucs up with a solid core in their front seven.
