With teams looking for a big back, why White over Riggs? Gerald Riggs Jr. seems to have all the ability that White has but will be available much later. Work ethic is not a question mark with Riggs. He has had hip and ankle injuries that have limited him in college, but nothing as serious as an ACL. He's a north-south power RB that teams are looking for who is being overlooked because of nagging injuries in college.
Riggs (5-10 3/4, 229) was timed at 4.59 and 4.63 in the 40. He had a 36 1/2-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot-7 broad jump, a 4.25 short shuttle and a 7.15 three-cone drill. He also had 17 lifts. His father was a former first-round pick who played 10 years for the Redskins and Falcons.
White (6-0¾, 244) had 15 lifts, but didn't do any vertical or long jumps. He did not run or do position drills, claiming he had an injured hamstring. White did not help himself by not doing a full workout at the Pro Day.
