Zuri Berry of Boston.com wrote Monday that running back James White "is quickly becoming one of the camp's top phenoms and is the team's leading rookie." White received the most touches of any back during Sunday's 11-on-11 drills, finishing one ahead of Stevan Ridley .
Berry added that White has "exceptional skills and moves with the confidence of a veteran." The team is giving him "an abundance of reps" ahead of other rookies and veteran Brandon Bolden to see what White can and can't do.
White's receiving skills gets him compared to Shane Vereen often, but Berry thinks White runs more like Ridley, saying that they move similarly and run with a measure of determination. White is already expected to see a good chunk of snaps early on, but more could be coming if he keeps this up. If Vereen can't stay healthy or if Ridley comes down with another case of fumblitis, White looks to be the man who will benefit most. He's worth a late-round stash in re-draft leagues.
