1972 Profile: Jan White

Tight End
No. 80
Ohio State
"He didn't catch a lot of passes as a rookie but made almost everyone's all-rookie team regardless. The reason: he's an exceptional blocking tight end, maybe the best in Bills' history, yet he has been a pro only one year. He gathered in 13 passes for 130 yards.
Jan has excellent speed (he was one of the nation's best hurdlers in high school) so he may be utilized more this season. A second round draft choice, Jan had been a three-year starter for three great Ohio State teams. He's interested in a coaching career.
He's very agile and has fine range and hands. Jan lends himself to Coach Saban's system and could be a future star.
Jan is from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania."
