Kyzir's brother, Ka'Raun, a receiver, is also entering the draft. He is expected to be selected late during Day 3 or as a priority free agent, according to Lance Zierlein of Their older brother, Kevin, also a receiver, was a first-round pick by the Chicago Bears in 2015. projects White to be a second- or third-round draft pick. The 49ers currently own the 27th selection in the second round and two picks in the third.

Zierlein, who compares White to Michael Boley, wrote the following within his scouting report:

"Like his brothers who also attended West Virginia, White was a late bloomer who was lightly recruited and began his journey at Lackawanna Junior College. Despite being a JUCO transfer, White has become a highly-respected team leader who leads by example with his fearless, physical play. Teams are looking to transition him into a hybrid role with the ability to cover tight ends like a safety and support the run like a linebacker. While he's nothing special as an athlete, his competitiveness and play-demeanor should earn him a spot as a starter."

Matt Miller of Bleacher Report, who compares White to Kam Chancellor, wrote the following about him:

"Kyzir White wins with competitive toughness and mental processing that allow him to fill a variety of roles. He's a relentless hitter who relishes opportunities to bang pads and will have no trouble transitioning to NFL contact. His size and athleticism are a blessing and curse, as he has the frame and skill set to be a moveable defender in the box but lacks the true speed to have a defined role in a defensive backfield. White's physicality in all three phases is his calling card and will be the ticket to his earning an early starting role."

Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst wrote the following within his scouting report:

"White has the size and temperament to play as a conventional strong safety or in a zone system and is a potential starter down the road."
