Mike White

2022 Team: New York Jets

Mike White took the NFL by storm last season, well, at least for a couple of weeks anyway. White didn’t see the field until Week 11 against the Bears, but completed over 78 percent of his passes in that game and tossed three touchdowns. The following week against our beloved Vikings, he threw for 369 yards, and then the next week at Buffalo, White nearly tossed for another 300.

He finished 2023 with 1192 yards passing in four games with three touchdowns and four interceptions and a quarterback rating of 75.7. White showed toughness in those starts trying to play through a brutal rib injury which ultimately ended up putting him on the shelf.

White possesses good size, standing 6-foot-4 and weighing in at 218 pounds. He throws a pretty accurate ball and is still only 27-years-old. While White isn’t going to get a bunch of offers to be a team’s starting quarterback in 2023, he did show some flashes that have to have teams intrigued with his potential.
