Sorry, not a fan of drafting P.White. I think there are a number of players I would take over him, unless they think he can be an elite returner. As a QB prospect I wouldn't take him earlier than rnd 5/6. I know there is a lot of hype around him, but I don't see it. THis kid played in a gimmicky offense in college and isn't 6ft tall, IMO he won't be starting at QB for anyone... ever.
Well, actually he's nearly 6-1 and the WVU offense in 2008 wasn't gimmicky, and he hammer Oklahoma taking about half the snaps out of the I formation. I'm not sure you've ever actually watched him.
If you think gimmicky is too strong a word, that's fine. I'm not going to split hairs and it's really a matter of opinion. They certainly weren't a pro-style offense, and I'm not sure that running out of the I-formation against Oklahoma's porous defense really means much.
I'll give you that he's a shade over 6 ft tall, should have looked at the combine numbers, but 6-0.25 isn't nearly 6-1, and it certainly isn't 6-3+. He's not touching 6-3+ even in heels, that's the point. No way he's the answer at QB.
