NASHVILLE (WFLA) – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have selected linebacker Devin White fifth overall in the 2019 NFL Draft.
He comes to the Buccaneers from LSU.
White lit up the clock at the NFL Scouting Combine by running a 4.42 40-yard dash, the fastest by a linebacker since 2006.
Buccaneers General Manager Jason Licht said White was “always their guy.”
“You feel Devin’s energy when he walks into the room. He leaves an impression that doesn’t leave you,” Licht said.
According to the Buccaneers, White will be introduced at a press conference in Tampa around 3:30 p.m. on Friday.
