The Miami Dolphins can add to their "wildcat" offensive scheme with the raw play-making ability of West Virginia quarterback, Pat White.

The Dolphins had Ronnie Brown taking direct snaps from the "wildcat" formation last year, passing and running the ball efficiently and effectively.

But White has everything head coach Tony Sparano needs: a quarterback with 4.4 speed who can improvise on the go.

White, coming off of a fantastic four years with the Mountaineers, a great combine workout, and an MVP performance at the Senior Bowl, has skeptics turning their heads, and opinions.

Critics say his sub-par arm and a less-than-prototypical pro-quarterback body (6'0”, 197 pounds) will hinder him in the NFL.

However, White has been busy proving them all wrong. He accumulated 10,531 total yards from scrimmage during his collegiate career, resulting in a combined 93 touchdowns, both rushing and passing.

White also impressed scouts at the combine, throwing alongside sure-fire first-rounder, Mark Sanchez. He showed consistency and arm strength in his passing drills, proving he can place the ball quickly and accurately.

Putting his mix of speed, arm strength, mobility, improvisational skills, and pure football instinct into a “wildcat” offense, like Miami's, would scare even the best of defensive coordinators.

White will be able to do everything Brown did for the Dolphins out of the formation, but better.
