West Virginia Quarterback Pat White Could be a Playmaker in the NFL

The NFL Draft is still awhile away, as it won’t kickoff until April 25th and 26th in New York City. With that though, one player that you should keep your eye on is West Virginia quarterback Pat White. The QB could be a steal according to Mike Mayock, the draft analyst for NFL Network, who seems to already be in love with what White brings to the table as not just a QB, but a player that can do it all.

“To me, he’s got the ‘it’ factor,” he said. “I don’t care how big he is or whether or not he’s accurate as a thrower. I want him on my team. I don’t think he’s a full-time quarterback. But to me, today, he’s the best Wildcat quarterback in the NFL. Today. He can give you 10 to 15 snaps a game. He has the ability to run the option. The ability to throw the ball better than any Wildcat in the game right now. That’s tremendous value. As long as he buys into the whole idea of using him wherever you need to.

“I don’t think there’s a whole lot of people who have him valued as high as I do,” Mayock said. “But I would take him in the second round because I think he’s a leader and I think he presents problems for a defense.”

White threw a career 56 touchdowns, and last season threw for 1,844 yards and 21 touchdowns to go along with 1335 yards rushing and another 14 touchdowns. White could be that ultimate “slash” player for a team looking to run a diverse offense, and only time will tell if he’s going to be that type of impact player come the 2009 NFL Draft.

    He Wins because he is a Winner. He has the art and science of a Joe Montana but is much faster. The GM who picks him up before the 3rd round will be the talk of the NFL in years to come. He will get better.

    The team who get white, will get a blessing in desguise. He has never got the credit he deserves but now he will put that all to rest as he proves once and for all he was the best quarterback in college football. I would rather have him over sanchez, stofford or the highly over rated TIM TEBOW, any day of the week. He is a winner and that says it all. Pat good luck at the next level, ill be looking 4 ya on draf day
