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.
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."
But he also knows that ultimately, it won't be his decision at the next level
as to whether he lines up at quarterback, wide receiver or as a returns
"I would love to play quarterback, but I also want to help in any way I
can, whether it is to receive or punt return," he said. "I just want
to get on the field somehow."
During his senior year, White completed 65.7 percent of his throws for 1,842 yards and 21 touchdowns. He ran for 947 yards and scored eight rushing touchdowns.
