The Cincinnati Bengals claimed ex West Virgina wide receiver Ka’raun White off waivers this past Tuesday. They will get a great look at him in mini-camp this weekend.
The Seattle Seahawks gave Ka’Raun White an undrafted free agent contract. It was a three-year 1.4 million dollar contract. He was able to go to their rookie mini-camp over the last weekend. After that weekend he was cut. The Cincinnati Bengals picked him up off waivers on Tuesday for the same contract. He will be participating in the Bengals rookie mini-camp this weekend.
Ka’Raun White is already from a family of stars that went to West Virgina. His brother, ex safety from West Virgina Kyzir White, got drafted from the LA Chargers in the fourth round of this year’s draft. His older brother Kevin White was a huge star wide receiver for the Mountaineers. He was a first rounder drafted by the Chicago Bears in 2015.
Ka’Raun White had a very impressive senior year. He raked in 61 catches for 1004 yards and 12 touchdowns. He would have had an even better campaign if West Virgina quarterback Will Grier had a healthy season. He is still very impressive.
He is 6’1 and weighs 205 pounds. He has very good speed and he has great upper body strength for a player his size. He gets sudden bursts of speed when he comes out of his routes. His speed and his precision on his routes give him a huge advantage. They used to call him “MR.HANDS”. It is very noticeable in this video.
Ka’Raun White looks like he wants to prove to the NFL that he should have been drafted. He will get that chance. The Bengals for the past several years huge competition at the wide receiver position. The one advantage to look for is his ability to get separation quickly on man to man coverage. He could have a very good chance to get a job.
