SUMMARY: Titans RB LenDale White was the 45th pick of the 2006 NFL Draft. After a Rose Bowl performance where he gained 124 yards on 20 carries with three touchdowns, many felt he would be taken higher. But a poor Trojan Pro Day workout and an injury which kept him from running the 40 saw his stock fall before draft day. When the Titans were on the clock in the second round, offensive coodinator Norm Chow was asked his opinion on White and gave his endorsement. "I coached him, and I enjoyed him," Chow said. "He was always very honest and played very hard. He was never a problem. There are some judgments that were made about him that I didn't think were very accurate. Our relationship allowed me to have better insight into him, and I think he's a heckuva football player." White wants to reward the coach who had faith in him and make the other 31 teams who passed on him suffer. "I know what kind of bond Coach Chow and I have, and I know the respect level we have for each other," White said. "I did slip (in the draft), but this is where I wanted to be. I look at this as great news. I wouldn't want to play for anybody else." What do you think about this article? Post your comments below.
