Dolphins pick Pat White in the second round

It sounded like a strange pick with the 44th overall selection, but the Dolphins have drafted West Virginia's Pat White with their first pick of the second round.

White comes to the Dolphins with great position flexibility.

He obviously played QB in college. But his ability to escape and speed make him a threat if Miami continues using the wildcat package. He will compete with Ronnie Brown for that work.

And White is likely to get snaps as a wide receiver.

"I just want the opportunity to play," White said moments ago. "I had no expectations, I was just hoping someone would give me a chance. Someone has and now it's time to get to work."

White said he met with Dolphins quarterback coach David Lee during the Senior Bowl so obviously he will be asked to learn that position. People, this kid will be Miami's third-string quarterback next year and possibly the second-stringer if Chad Pennington doesn't sign an extension.

Oh yeah, this pick is not good news for backup quarterback John Beck, who has been on the trade block.

Welcome back JT this means you are back

Don't know what to expect with this next pick.
OT william beatty

take DJ Moore NOW!!!!!!!!!!!

what a coincidence, commercial break when the dolphins are picking, what babies the nfl network are. the dolphins didn't let u in, deal with it!

Miami's picking. Time for another ESPN commercial break?

William More is still out there... good value at #56.

Here we go...the dolphins select...c'mon roy miller

Mando/Fans...first and second downs are handled by Chad Sr and eventually Chad Jr. Third down we bring in Pat White in a spread offense...sick!!!

Thank god!!! Patrick hasn't returned :-)

Yeah if they dont take Johnson with the next pick either they think the CFL guy is that good or Taylor may be coming back

Paul Kruger...gotta be.

WR? FS?

its a trade to the colts

Trade with Colts

what did we get for the pick?!!!!!!!!!!!!

traded out

I am just here because I posted that White should get picked in the 3rd or 4th, but I guess the Trifecta liked him more than that. He will cause havoc in the Wildcat because defenses won't be able to put as many in the box. 7-10 snaps a game at QB in the Wildcat, whatever he can contribute as slot receiver, a project as a 3rd QB(allowing Beck to be traded) are the resources the Dolphins gained today. He will fill multiple roster spots, contribute on the field in multiple roles, yield extra draft picks in the future as well as bring additional speed to the Dolphins offense. Great pick for the Dolphins.

Agree Denver, he needs to go. Last years draft was easy, this one not so much. All that time looking at film, working out players....for what?

Might as well trade at this point.

WTF Trade???

Now they trade...they should have traded their #1 pick

now they trade down?! they better have made a good deal.

I guess Armando is taking a break! He hasn't posted in forever!

Was never a wildcat fan so I hate this total waste of a pick!!! F---ing stunning!! We had 3-4 top priority positions to fill in the first couple of rounds and at "2A" we take "Pat you gotta be F---ing trippin White!!" Are they having a crack party in the war room?? This is F---ing Bulllshit!!!!!!!!

Phone call for Mando....Bill parcells needs his dried frog pills

With that trade and this draft we more than likly lost a pick,lol!!!!


just waiting to hear what they got for the pick and i am out of here

mando?

we get pick #61 + a 5RD pick...

swapped in the 2nd to #61 and picked up a 5th

miami swaped 2 round and recieve 5th round

cody brown and lawrence sidbury still there in the 3rd round to adress pass-rush. i would love sean smith with this next pick or jared cook with martin and fasano prob. gone next year and have heynos for the redzone. cook was the fastest TE.

Another 5th round pick I like it.

5th round pick

Marcus , OK . Done. You were busting my chops over the white thing between me and mando , which had nothing to do with you. So that's why i flew off the handle.

wow a 5th rounder, hope no one takes johnson

Parcells loves 5th round picks, so when guys he draft players like Pat White in the 5th and they are garbage no one cares but if you hit 1 5th rounder out of 10 then you are a hero

We got the Colts 5th round pick for the switch of their 2nd round picks

pat white: not a sound pick; agree its a gadget. need depth at OL; a big WR; ILB i say wait for Rd 3

what did we get for the 56th pick? Pat White will be amazing as a slash wildcat WR. I was expecting Fili Moala to goto the dolphins now we shall see... anyone have any info on Patrick Turner 6'5 WR USC he looks like the next best bet their otherwise TE from FL

I think this pick makes us a "gadget" team and our draft this year has not been up to my expectations based upon last year.

kruger gone, another one bites the dust. perhaps pat white can rush the qb too huh? someone has to!

with the 58th pick in the 2nd rd... the pats take.....

whoever the dolphins were planning on taking!..

LUV THE PICK!!!!!!!PARCELLS ALWAYS FINDS HIDDEN GEMS THAT R UNDER THE RADAR IN THE LATE ROUNDS ANYHOW SO DONT GET PISSY ABOUT THE PICK.THIS YEARS DRAFT IS THAT GREAT FOR WHAT OUR NEW SCHEME IS ANYHOW SO LETS GET THOSE GAMECHANGERS WHEN WE CAN NOBODYS A SURE PICK ANYHOW HAVE SO BALLS AND TAKE A CHANCE.

Where's Mando??? What does he do??

The Pat's are Aceing this draft

Lots of fake fans posting garbage in here today. BP took your TEAM from the gutter to the penthouse in one year. Dont question the Tuna.

smith,cook,brown,sidbury?

Fins go TE next... watch and weep...

calling it: DJ Moore to Carolina

gina: good call!!!!

Never question the tuna. Half of you idiots in this chat wouldnt even be fans if it wasnt for the Tuna turning the dolphins around last year.

Total waste of a pick. Not a QB. Not a WR. Probably could have had Boldin in a trade - instead we have a utility player. Why?

Fish. Pats got a weak CB. Butler cant even bench 225 11 times. I bet you our new backup QB can bench more thanm that. I cant wait to see their new Butler diving out of Ronnie's way. That is going to be fun to watch!

Michael Johnson next, Juaquin Iglesias or Louis Murphy tomorrow

Did Chris Berman die his hair Bengals orange??? What is that??

the white pick is for the wildcat people, and a throwing threat at wr, and a backup qb to henne the future, 3rd qb now. Plus, he will play in the games, so it doesnt give a need to have a 3rd qb holding a clickboard.

finsfan4life: very true, but u don't
Think Belicheat & not being able to trade out
Of 1st mind f'd BP?

BC and the rest of you idiots questioning the tuna need to get lost!!!

THE WAKE QUAKE and THE SIDBURY SPIN! MAKE IT HAPPEN TUNA

Mando, any news?
