Markus White, DE, Florida State

Markus White has been a huge part of the success of the Florida State defense during the 2010 campaign. Through nine games, the Seminoles have held their opponents to under 20 points six times. One early test was against the Wake Forest tricky run game and White and the rest of the defensive line did a superb job, keeping the Demon Deacons off of the scoreboard. White started his collegiate career at the junior college level where he dominated for a year before heading to FSU. During his first year in Tallahassee, White tallied 29 tackles, 5.5 tackles-for-loss and one sack despite seeing limited playing time.

In 2009 Everette Brown was off in the NFL and White stepped into a starting role. He did not turn into a major threat to pick up many sacks, but White did develop into a solid run stuffer. With a new defensive scheme, White would be asked to continue to stuff the run from his left defensive end position, but also apply more pressure to the quarterback. That is exactly what he has done. Through nine games he already has a career high 42 tackles and has added 8.5 tackles-for-loss and 5.5 sacks.

White may not even be the most talented defensive end on his team, but he is relatively experienced and a solid athlete. NFL teams would like to see him add some more strength and weight to his 6-4 frame. White has decent speed, but not enough to make up for his lack of size and that will keep him down in the later rounds.
