West Virginia’s Pat White refused to practice at any other position besides quarterback at the Senior Bowl. The decision raised some eyebrows, but it paid off when he was named MVP of the game.
Since the Senior Bowl, however, White appears to have softened his stance somewhat. While he said his dream is to play quarterback, he indicated he was willing to play other positions if that is what it takes to make an NFL team.
“I would love to be a quarterback, but I also want to help in any way I can. Whether it’s wide receiver, punt return, whatever. I just want to get on the field somehow,” White said.
No matter where White ultimately winds up, he figures to get a long look by scouts, especially with his skills fitting so well into the popular ‘wildcat’ formation.
