West Virginia wide receiver Kevin White is in Chicago this week for the NFL Draft and he thinks there’s a pretty good chance that he’ll be spending a lot more time there in the near future.
White told Peter Schrager of FOX Sports that his meeting with the Bears was a “special” one that felt different from the other visits he took as part of the pre-draft process that’s been unfolding over the past several weeks. The Bears will have several options with the seventh overall pick and took meetings with plenty of other players, but the wideout believes his name will be on the card the Bears hand in on Thursday evening.
“I feel like if I’m there at 7, I think they will pick me,” White said, via the Chicago Sun-Times.
The trade of Brandon Marshall to the Jets would seem to raise the likelihood that the Bears take a receiver early and White said that the team’s coaches was “very high on me” filling the role vacated by the veteran wideout. We’ll find out soon enough if White can just stay put after the draft.
