Pat White Must Prove He Can Be A Quarterback In The NFL

Published on January 27, 2009 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Class: 2009 Big Board

1/21/09 – (Senior Bowl): Pat White wishes he had Harrell’s problems…as he has to prove to NFL personnel people that he is in fact a quarterback, otherwise he is headed to wide receiver. While Harrell was reaching the 400-yard mark on a regular basis the past two seasons, the Mountaineers’ leader in the huddle didn’t turn in his first 300-yard performance until his career finale. White is a winner – he is the first quarterback ever with four bowl wins as a starter – but did as much damage with his legs as he did with his arm at the college level, if not more. White’s Meineke Car Care performance (26-of-32 passing, 332 yards, three touchdowns) opened some eyes and proved he deserves at least the opportunity to prove he is a quarterback. Thus far, White is sticking to his guns and playing exclusively at quarterback in Mobile. It says here that in all likelihood when White lines up in shut-gun on Sundays, it will be in some sort of “Wildcat” package, not as a traditional quarterback.

1/19/09 – (Senior Bowl Practice): Struggled throwing the ball, handling the windy conditions and then when he did throw a good ball it was dropped by one of his receivers. Not sure if he was not use to the NFL football or it was just a bad day at the office, but at Tuesday’s practice it will be huge for him to rebound before scouts think about seeing him at wide receiver.

12/10/08 – West Virginia quarterback Pat White will give his hometown fans an opportunity to cheer him on in person next month. The Daphne, AL. native has accepted an invitation to play in the 2009 Under Armour Senior Bowl at Ladd-Peebles Stadium on January 24. The game will kickoff at 6 pm (CT) and will be televised nationally by the NFL Network.

7/1/08 – White has been one of the top playmakers in the nation. He has operated the Mountaineers’ spread attack since his freshman season and has captured a pair of Big East Titles to go along with BCS Bowl upsets over powerhouses Georgia (in 2005) and Oklahoma (in 2007). The Mountaineers quarterback has been as dangerous as any player in the open field regardless of position, rushing for 3,356 yards and 38 touchdowns. Because he has passed for only 4,207 yards and 35 touchdowns, most scouts project him as a receiver at the next level. White appears to have the ideal skill-set to be an excellent number three/slot receiver and return man in the NFL—speed, quickness and vision. He has the potential to be a productive pro if he can make a similar transition to that of former Indiana dual-threat quarterback Antwaan Randle El. There will be some teams that fall in love with White’s upside and call his name as early as the third or fourth round. His intangibles and locker room presence would be exceptional for a wide receiver.
