7 Days of Draftsmas: Vikings Workout Pat White

Sources have told FOX Sport’s Alex Marvez that the Vikings had West Virginia quarterback Pat White in for a private workout on Tuesday, and are interested in him as both a quarterback and a wide receiver.  This will of course open the floodgates on speculation that the Vikings are looking to implement, at least to some degree, the “Wildcat” formation that was so successful last season for the Dolphins, White being a guy who isn’t viewed as a regular pro-style QB, but a slash-type who could be successful in such a formation.  I still say Brad Childress is a stubborn sort not given to radically rework his offensive philosophy, even if his personnel would tend to indicate such a makeover is in order…but maybe he’d be willing to mix in a few Wildcat plays just to change things up.  White is seen as a third-round prospect at best, which means Childress will probably trade several picks to move up into the second round and get him, even if he doesn’t have to.
