Buzz continues to build around versatile QB White

As the draft draws closer, the number of teams showing interest in West Virginia QB Pat White continues to grow.

White recently was worked out by the Denver Broncos in quarterback-only drills, and the Cleveland Browns and New England Patriots put him through a workout of predominantly non-quarterback drills. The Philadelphia Eagles have scheduled a workout for White later this week, and he is expected to be put through quarterback and positional drills. White also has interviews scheduled with the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots, who seem to be doing extensive homework on him.

White, who rushed for more than 4,000 yards as a four-year starter at West Virginia, is being projected as a possible wide receiver/kick returner in part because, at 6-foot and 197 pounds, he is smallish by NFL quarterback standards. Several teams view White as a quarterback first, but the likely second- to mid-round draft pick is so versatile that teams are exploring using him in a variety of ways.
