He has a much better arm than people give him credit for. Comparing his arm strength to that of Josh Heupel's is laughable.
White has actually become fairly mobile for a guy with two repaired ACLs. He's not going to get any faster though, believe me. He did wear knee braces last season and was noticably slower.
[View Full Quote]Jason White is a winner. He is dead on accurate and EXTREMELY intelligent on the football field. White also reads defenses and look off receivers better than anyone in college football. His 30TD to 4 INT ratio speaks for itself. Granted, he does play in a great system and that's going to help his draft stock. The opposite effect happened to Chris Simms, who should have been drafted higher than the 3rd had he not played in an arguably poor offensive system.
But with all that said...because of his knee injuries and the fact that pro scouts don't think he has a "rocket arm", he's risky. I have heard that he could go anywhere from the 3rd round to the 6th. It would be a major shock to see him go anywhere in the first two rounds, but that's what they said about Quincy Carter.
A third round pick is not far-fetched however because of the obvious lack of QB depth in the NFL and you can believe somebody will take a chance on him.
yeah, he sure looked dead on accurrate vs Kansas St and LSU last yr
I'm betting he goes undrafted, and if he does sneak in the draft it'll be late on day two
