Devin White – LB

Just like the Bucs wide receivers, any of the linebackers on the pewter and red could be mentioned here. Shaq Barrett and Lavonte David are absolute studs, but so is Devin White.

White is having a stellar 2020 season. The dude already has 109 tackles on the year with nine of them being for a loss in addition to a forced fumble. Tampa Bay will be focused on shutting down Dalvin Cook and White will be a major factor in whether or not they can succeed in doing that.

White can cover a ton of ground and he closes in on the ball carrier in a hurry. He’s a big hitter and he also has aggressive hands that are itching to pop the ball out any chance they get.

The Vikings will need to make ball security a focus on Sunday and keep five points of contact on the football at all times.

If the run game is going to be successful, Minnesota will need their lead blockers to get to the second level to neutralize this electric Bucs defender. If White is left unblocked, he will be all over Cook and their offense, in general, will likely struggle to get going.
