Atlanta's 1st round pick, 27th overall from UAB. 108 ryd week 11.
He could be the best wideout in the 2005 draft because he's quick, and knows how to break away from coverage and make plays. He and Michael Vick have been playing together really well, so Atlanta's stepping up the passing game.
Hopefully he continues tearing it up tomorrow vs Detroit.

1/4 of his receiving yards for the entire season came on 1 play. He had 1 OK game (with that 54 yard reception) I would wait calling him the next best WR

IMO he's better than Jerry Rice ever was.

Jeeeeezus, where did that come from? Hey, I'm all for smacking someone around a little bit when they say something stupid, but all he did was say, and I quote, "He could be the best wideout in the 2005 draft." He never proclaimed him to be, "the next best WR" or anything of the sort. Reading comprehension goes a long ways fellas....

He's the WR Atlanta wanted Peerless Price to be.

Someone who can run down the field and hook up on a 40+ yarder after Vick scrambles out of the pocket.

You're an idiot.

The guy might be correct. This was a weak ass WR draft. Who else is the best WR so far? A QB playing WR? He's produced the most.

White has been hurt, and he is probably a better WR then Jones (both of them). Edwards hasn't done much, but he's also been hurt. But we don't have to go too far back to find a top 10 WR who is a bust *cough* Rogers *cough*.

White has - 14 receptions for 224 yards and 1 TD

Some other WRs:

Matt Jones - 27 rec, 331 yards, 4 TDs
Mike Williams - 19 rec, 224 yards, 1 TD
Braylon Edwards - 23 rec, 384 yards, 1 TD
Reggie Brown - 20 rec, 305 yards, 2 TDs
Troy Williamson - 20 rec, 292 yards, 2 TDs
Brandon Jones - 22 rec, 295 yards, 2 TDs
Chris Henry - 22 rec, 290 yards, 4 TDs
Mark Clayton - 18 rec, 141 yards, 0 TDs

Considering how Braylon Edwards was the NFL's consensus top WR and he's got at worst the 2nd best stat line amongst all rookie WRs, White hasn't done anything to even put him in cosideration against Edwards. Right now, its got to be either Matt Jones or Braylon Edwards, not just because of their stats, but also because of their incredible physical abilities.

The bottomline is that White has done absolutely nothing to distinguish himself amongst the rookie WRs that have seen playing time this year, so there isn't a basis upon which to claim he could be the best.
