With the thirteenth pick in the second round of the draft, the Tennessee Titans selected running back LenDale White of USC. White's stock fell tremendously, but the Titans have to be licking their chops with the draft they've had so far. They just drafted possibly the two best offensive players from the BCS Championship game this past season in Vince Young, and now White. He's had some conditioning issues, but can easily win the Titans starting running back job.

Scouting Information on Justice: Despite splitting carries with the most electrifying running back coming out of the draft, LenDale White often performed just as well as Bush did. He had 197 carries for 1,302 yards and 24 touchdowns as a junior at USC, and is skipping his senior year to enter the draft.

Despite having Bush, the USC Trojans decided to hand the ball off to White in the Championship game against the Texas Longhorns. Although White didn't convert the "clinching" short-yardage run, he performed well the entire game as well as the season. White can somewhat be thought of as a Jerome Bettis and Curtis Martin combined. He has good size and is a very powerful runner. He doesn't have blazing speed but is fast enough to be a starter in the league. It is rare that a defender will be able to come up and knock White backwards, so he is almost always automatic when it comes to short-yardage and goal line situations. Sometimes he tries to take it to the outside when he sees an opening, but that is often a mistake because he's not fast enough to cut around the corner past defenders. He is not used to carrying a huge load since he split time with Bush, and may only be a third-down or first/second-down running back in his first season or so.
