CBS Sports believes there’s a “sleeper rookie” who could earn a key role for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2022.

White rushed for 1,000 yards and 15 touchdowns as a senior at Arizona State last season. He also caught 43 passes for 456 yards and one touchdown.

I know Trapasso mentioned that White could serve as Leonard Fournette’s backup, but it’s plausible that White could end up at No. 1 on the Bucs’ running back depth chart by late in the season.

Leonard Fournette, the incumbent starting running back, reported to minicamp this week looking “thick” and he was “laboring” through drills (Fournette said he’s currently at 240 lbs and plans to be around 228 lbs for the 2022 season).
