NASHVILLE — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have selected LSU linebacker Devin White with the fifth overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

White becomes the highest-drafted linebacker in program history and nobody is more deserving. He’s a two-time All-American and the school’s first Butkus Award winner. Now, he’s a Top-5 pick.

White is also the only FBS player with 250+ tackles, 25+ tackles for loss and 6.0 sacks since 2017. White was recruited as a four-star running back out of high school and ended up switching to linebacker once he got to Baton Rouge.

I’d say it turned out okay for him in the end.
