Brady White (Memphis)

2020 Stats:

  • 10 interceptions
  • 60.5 completion percentage

Brady White has been around college football for what seems like an eternity. He started out at Arizona State in 2015 and eventually transferred to Memphis where he became the starting quarterback in 2018. For the Tigers, he threw for over 10,000 yards, 90 touchdowns, and 30 interceptions over three seasons.

He posted incredible numbers at Memphis and helped make their offense one of the most dangerous in college football over the past few seasons. However, his arm talent and overall NFL projection are not great.

White lacks an elite or even NFL-level arm that limits his ability to push the field and throw outside of the numbers. Regardless of what Vikings fans will tell you, those are things the Vikings need Kirk to do if they want to be successful in the passing game.

I am not a huge fan of Brady White but I do think his long collegiate career and continuous reps will give him a shot to stick in the NFL as a backup. He has the age and experience to bring something of value to the meeting rooms and as an emergency quarterback.

At age 25, White would have a leg up as a rookie but will not be someone you can trust as the developmental quarterback of the future.
