    I'm wondering if anyone else besides me would see bringing in Steve Slaton's old quarterback in next year intriqueing. Pat White should not be a top pick or maybe not even 1st rounder pick. 2nd or 3rd round maybe we could have a 1-2 punch in the future. Starting him out behind Schaub and giving him some time when Schaub eventually gets hurt.

    White projects more as a WR than a QB in the NFL.

    It would only add to the excitement of our offense. I wouldn't be against the pick if it were on the 2nd day. 1st and 2nd round needs to be some defensive studs. Maybe a trade down in the 1st again? Then we could pick him in the 3rd round like we did Slaton!

    I don't know how well Pat White really projects to the NFL. He's a spread offense QB and that typically doesn't turn out well in the NFL. If a team picked him before the 4th round I'd laugh. He would make for an interesting Randle-El type player(before he stupidly went to to DC).

    TD's 15 - 4 INT's and 1104 yards passing

    He's listed at 6'-1" and 192 lbs. As Goldensilence and Bah007 stated, he doesn't really project as a QB.

    He's a play maker at the college level, but not an NFL QB, and a boarderline NFL player. Slight frame, weak arm, no experience at WR.

    Unless its in the 5th round, no. The spread option QB's need time to learn the pro game. We dont have time to sit and wait.

    hes not even 200 pounds....you wont find many sub 200 pounders survive to play at a high level at qb in the NFL. He may be a Canadian QB since the field is set up for smaller guys with its width...but that's it.

    White just broke the NCAA record for career rushing yards by a QB.

    Went over 200 against Louisville today.

    Its either the CFL or find another position in the NFL ..... Sorry but I dont want to waste a pick on a project who would likely be an UDFA. This team has far too many holes to fill to waste picks on projects.
