Strength: Arm Strength
Mike White doesn’t have a Josh Allen level arm, but he can fire a pass in to his receivers when coverage is tight. More importantly, he has the ability to make throws all over the field and fire passes into tight coverage with both accuracy and velocity.
We’ll touch upon the former shortly, but for a player who isn’t known for his athleticism, White’s arm strength is a reliable force in the plus column.
White has the arm strength to make throws at all three levels, which should appeal to scouts and general managers. Everyone dreams of the Allen’s of the world, but the reality is that most successful NFL quarterbacks can simply make the necessary throws.
What makes White appealing from a pure prospect perspective is that when his deep balls are off the mark, they tend to be long—again, a sign of his arm strength.
What matters most with White is that he can fire a pass into a tight window when need be. He can throw to the sidelines, work the intermediate game, or even make a tough throw under pressure to a checkdown option who has limited time their self.
White may or may not be an NFL-caliber quarterback, but he can put the necessary velocity behind the throws that he’ll be asked to make.
