NFL Draft: AFC Rivals Pursuing Same QB
By Ed Thompson
Scout.com, March 23, 2009
The Baltimore Ravens have Joe Flacco. The Cleveland Browns have both Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson. Why, then, are both of these teams so interested in working out the same QB prospect? Ed Thompson has the answer.
A source has told Scout.com that West Virginia quarterback Pat White will be working out for the Cleveland Browns on Wednesday prior to making an official visit with the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday and Friday this week.
As Scout.com previously reported, White worked out for the New England Patriots, and he's also gone through a workout for the Denver Broncos.
Some critics have questioned if White can play quarterback at the next level since he's only 6-foot tall. But at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis last month, White addressed that issue by referencing his performance at the Senior Bowl. And he also noted that there are some offensive changes underway in the NFL that play to his strengths.
"I think I showed that I could get the ball over those guys who are 6-foot-6 and 6-foot-7," he said. "I think the implementation of the Wildcat and other spread systems will definitely help me out because of the style of offense we ran at West Virginia."
