As scouts search for quarterbacks who are worth investing in after the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, Mike White is surfacing as a viable option.
Entering the 2018 Senior Bowl, all eyes were on Josh Allen and Baker Mayfield. Allen and Mayfield are projected top-10 draft picks who have the raw potential to become legitimate franchise quarterbacks in the NFL.
While Allen and Mayfield played well during the drills and game, it was Western Kentucky Hilltoppers quarterback Mike White who stole headlines.
Western Kentucky isn’t the most high-profile of programs, but White has a chance to officially put the Hilltoppers on the map. He’s a candidate to be selected on Day 2 of the 2018 NFL Draft, which could put him in the position of a QB2 as early as his rookie season.
Even if White falls to Day 3, the general consensus is that he’ll be drafted within the first four rounds and will thus be on a roster in 2018.
Knowing this to be true, it’s hard to be anything but intrigued by what White could accomplish at the next level. He may not be a projected starter, but he has enough raw potential to have intrigued the masses and appealed to scouts and general managers.
The question is: What are the key strengths and weaknesses that will define Mike White’s 2018 NFL Draft stock and overall transition to the next level?
