    All this cat does is win. I know that dude from UT was the same. Pat is 6'1...not good

    One of you stat geeks tell me why he is not worth a 3?

    All I know is what I have seen.

    Kinda like #20......

    We should draft him late if he's there and let him and Slaton reunite and run some zone reads or something.

    It could be an interesting change of pace for the offense.

    I'm not a fan of him as a starting NFL QB but I agree with this idea. Actually I like it quite a bit. 5th round or later draft him and develop him as a backup QB who can do other things for the team. Sage is going to be here next year and then he is probably gone. As bad as he looked at times Rosenfels is a quality backup and those guys are pretty tough to find. For the most part when a team loses its starting QB they are in pretty big trouble on the offensive end. If your backup is a QB like Pat White at least he brings some potential explosiveness on offense and something totally different that an opposing D has to prepare for. I doubt he could do it for a very extended period of time but thats alright for a backup QB.

    I know we don't really do any trick plays etc. but you gotta figure this guy could at least have some potential there. Wouldn't be surprised to see a team like Pittsburgh or Arizona grab him.

    I wouldn't take him too early. I'd use a flyer on him late in the draft though.

    Think about the only way he can make an NFL roster... at QB or WR. I don't see him making this team as a WR- not behind AJ, KW, AD, DA and JJ. As far as QB goes, do you think Kubes would be comfortable with him coming in as a rookie being the 2nd QB or maybe 3rd if we keep 3?

    I would LOVE to see him on this team but I would not tie up a valuable roster spot and wouldn't spend a high draft pick on him that could go to a starter.

    character is off the charts with package of skills on the field similar to Vick, yet not a Kubiak type of QB. I wouldn't mind taking a QB later if Rick could create some extra picks. otherwise the QB who intriques me the most is Kansas State Josh Freeman, 6-6 250. a third for him would be a calculated risk but his upside is so great I'd do it & move Sage to aquire that 3rd if its still out there?

    Don't think you'll see Pat White coming off the board in the third probably a bit later someone could take him and use him similar to Randle-El. Size at 6'1" hurts his stock as a starter.

    Erick Crouch wasn't a bad athlete either. He couldn't transition. I like Chase Daniels late not as the #2 Qb , but to be a back up Rb and have someone in the pipeline in '09 when they have to make the call on Matty. Read cheap play maker. Daniels is 220. Not a small guy at all. I thought Freeman was a Junior ?

    If we're going to "develop" a QB, I hope we get someone with some armstrength. As good as Schaub is starting to look, his lack of armstrength is becoming more and more apparent.

    Andre would lead the league in TDs, if Schaub could get the ball over his head.
