Just over a month away from the 2009 NFL draft, reports are beginning to flow in of private workouts NFL teams are hosting with coveted draft prospects. The Patriots have already been mentioned as holding private workouts with several big name prospects.
The Pat White workout is certainly an interesting one. After throwing well at the combine, he has shown that he can still play quarterback. However, he also ran a 4.55 40 yard dash, making him even more intriguing, as many scouts think he can play multiple positions, possibly receiver and running back, on offense. I actually talked to an old friend of mine who played with Pat White on West Virginia, he had only great things to say about him. Saying he was a class act, and great player, who always worked with an excellent motor.
Connor Barwin, the tight end/defensive end/outside linebacker/power forward from Cincinatti, is another intriguing prospect to me. But you’ll hear a lot more on him in the coming month.
