Wow. The feeling has been that White was drafted with the idea of being used as a receiver and perhaps returner, along with taking snaps in the Wildcat offense, even though GM Jeff Ireland said Saturday night the Dolphins drafted White as a quarterback.
It's certainly an interesting development considering Henne has been seen in Miami as the heir apparent to Pennington.
The reality, though, is that Henne never has played a significant down in the NFL, so the Dolphins really don't know what they have in Henne just yet. The drafting of White, in addition to giving them a new weapon for the Wildcat, also provides some added competition at quarterback -- and also another possibility -- for the post-Pennington era.
Not everyone is sold on White's potential as an NFL quarterback, but he certainly did nothing this offseason to hurt his cause after a tremendous career at West Virginia.
Because of his height, though, White was viewed by most as a specialty pick, which is why most expected him to get drafted later than when the Dolphins took him (44th overall).
But White's words would seem to indicate he'll get a shot at quarterback at some point for the Dolphins.
