NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- LSU linebacker Devin White, the Tigers' first Butkus Award winners, was the fifth overall pick in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday night.

White became the seventh LSU linebacker selected in the past seven drafts, including now three by the Bucs (White, Kendell Beckwith in the third round of the 2017 draft and Kwon Alexander in the fourth round of the 2015 draft).

White, who capped his career as a two-time All-America and All-Southeastern Conference selection, recorded 286 tackles, 29 tackles for loss and 8.5 sacks during his three years with the Tigers.

White earned SEC Defensive Player of the Week honors six times during his career and was twice named a permanent team captain as well as being a two-time recipient of the Charles McClendon Award which goes annually to LSU’s most valuable player.
