One of my favorite weapons is the BetaGasBomb. When it makes contact with the surface it unleashes a cloud of gas which kills everything in it! It’s a slow death.
Don’t ever say Wedge isn’t generous though. When I drop this bomb, I leave the lifeforms I gas, just enough time to draft a last will. In fact I even provide a pre-printed will with the bomb which also spread all over the surface.
Why so generous? Watching a QB spread the ball around like Mike White will do that to you.
The Positives: Western Kentucky has been putting some prolific offenses on the field the last few years and the last two years with Mike White as their QB, they continued that trend. Over 4300 yards passing in 2016 and over 4100 yards in 2017 with 63 total touchdowns over those last two years. Of course he threw close to 1000 times but WOW! His QB rating was off the charts at an impressive 158.1 while he was at Western Kentucky.
But it’s not just stats, its physical skills. At 6-4, 225 pounds he has the size that NFL scouts want from their QBs. He’s also got a cannon of an arm. In fact, White, who was also a pitcher in high school, is said to have a 90 mph fastball.
I think White’s a heady college QB who reads defenses well. He does a good job of manipulating defenses to create small windows when the deep ball isn’t there but he has an impressive deep ball too. He completed an impressive 57% of his deep throws.
The Negatives: The obvious weakness – he played for Western Kentucky (after transferring form South Florida). Maybe he is just a system QB. Dolfans might recall that Western Kentucky also produced Brandon Doughty who hasn’t done much in the NFL.
He has also taken a ton of sacks at Western Kentucky – 45 times in 2017 which lead to 12 fumbles. Of course, Western Kentucky has a notably bad offensive line, so in a way, he should be ready for the Dolphins should they select him.
Unless a roster is just devoid of any QBs, don’t expect Mike White to start in 2018. This guy probably needs a little time to be NFL ready.
The Alien Dust: White is from Pembroke Pines Florida, just around the corner from Davie. He’s a local product and was recommended to the Dolphins from another Western Kentucky local product in Doughty (who risks losing a job to White should White be drafted by the Dolphins).
The Dolphins have shown some interest in White and this pick would not surprise me in the 3rd round or 4th if he lasts through the 4th. I don’t think White goes any higher than the 2nd round and I doubt he is on the board in the 5th.
He has better tools to work with than his Western Kentucky predecessor (Doughty) and should be able to at least be a quality backup in the NFL.
White is similar to one of my favorite weapons – the BetaGasBomb.
