Zamir White had to share the workload in a talented Georgia backfield but he showed enough during his three seasons to be a mid-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. He's definitely got the power but there's more to his game, although he has plenty of things to work on. But there's enough natural talent and ability present to make some team happy when they call this running back's name on Day 2.

Zamir White Draft Profile
White was the thunder in the Bulldogs' thunder-and-lightning backfield. He's a big, violent runner with the ability to blast his way through contact, but his game is more than power. He has quick feet and shows the ability to pick his way through traffic between the tackles. His vision is very good on inside-zone runs, and he accelerates through creases quickly, then flashes impressive wiggle at the linebacker level. He has above-average long speed, as well as the leg drive to push the pile.
His third-down skill set is virtually nonexistent. He has the size to be capable in blitz pickup, but he was often late to identify blitzers and isn’t trustworthy at this point in his career.
He's strictly an early-down back entering the league, but that could change if he becomes sharper in blitz pickup.
Final Grade: 3rd/4th Round
