Kerrith Whyte: 3 things to know about the new Bears RB draft pick

The second RB draft pick by Ryan Pace could aid in the return game

Last Updated:

1) By the numbers: Whyte had a 77-yard rush and a 75-yard reception during his senior year at FAU, displaying the explosive ability and agility that Ryan Pace saw enough to draft him in the seventh.

2) A quote to know: In Whyte’s scouting profile, an AFC running backs coach said “[Devin] Singletary gets all the attention, but Whyte is the more explosive of the two and he might end up surprising people.”

3) Not just an RB: He had a 100-yard kick return for a score against ODU, becoming the first place in FAU’s history to return a kickoff for a score at home. He was named second team all Conference USA as a kick returner and honorable mention as a running back.
