West Virginia Football All-Time Draft: Pick No. 4

With the fourth pick of the all-time WVU football draft, the second quarterback comes off the board, but arguably the greatest player to play the position in program history.

West Virginia has seen many great quarterbacks come through Morgantown during the 121 year history of the Mountaineer football program.

Even with that great of time span, Pat White stands above them all during his four seasons for West Virginia.

White was the first quarterback in both West Virginia and overall college football history to go 4-0 as a starting quarterback. Marc Bulger, Rasheed Marshall, Chad Johnston and even Major Harris, who was picked prior to White in this draft, never won a bowl game during their time as quarterback for West Virginia.

You will also find White’s name littered atop many categories in the West Virginia record book when it comes to stats on the field.

White ranks third in both passing yards (6,049) and touchdowns (56), while he ranks second in both rushing touchdowns (47) and yards (4,480). The 284 points scored by White is eight overall amongst all players and third in program history in terms of jut skill players alone.

You can also add that White went 10-3 against top 25 opponents, including notable wins over then-No.8 Georgia in the 2006 Sugar Bowl and then-No. 3 Oklahoma in the 2008 Fiesta Bowl.

On top of all the skill he possessed on the football field for West Virginia, White also wasn’t half bad at impressions either:

With my next pick, White will be joined by a familiar face from the West Virginia backfield as the draft snakes toward pick No. 5.
