Sharod Lamor White, nicknamed as Roddy is a first-string wide receiver with the Atlanta Falcons. White, who played his college ball at the University of Alabama-Birmingham, was chosen by the Falcons as the 27th pick in round one of the 2005 NFL Draft.

White finished his college career with 163 receptions, 3,112 yards (19.1 YPC) and 26 touchdowns. He was Second-team All-Conference USA in his junior year and First-team All-Conference USA as a senior. He was a Pro Football Weekly All-American.

In three seasons, White has played in every one of 48 regular-season games for the Giants. He has garnered 142 receptions for 2,154 yards (15.2 YPC) and nine touchdowns. He has fumbled five times, losing four. As of 2010, he has played 15 games and leads the NFL in receptions with 109 and the NFC in receiving yards of 1,327. He has also 9 touchdowns to his credit.

At six-foot-even and 212 pounds, White possesses a fine frame. Athletic, speedy and quick, he’s effective vertically and underneath. On deep routes, he can get beyond defenders very quickly. He creates separation easily using in and out breaks and has a fine initial burst off the line. His hands are good and he adjusts nicely to coverage while running accurate routes. He continues to develop but must finally learn to hold onto the ball and keep his focus.
