Mariota has everything you ask for in terms of tools from a college quarterback. He possesses a great arm and accuracy with his quick delivery. Along with being a great thrower, Mariota is the best scrambling quarterback I have ever scouted as he shows blazing speed. The tools are not the problem when it comes to Mariota, it is whether he can translate from the Oregon offense to the NFL in terms of reading defenses. Mariota also must protect the ball better as he has accumulated 27 fumbles throughout his college career. Despite the down falls, Mariota is a quarterback that coaches around the league will love to work with because of his great character and elite tools.

Kevin White experienced a breakout year at West Virginia jumping from just 507 yards during his junior year to 1447 yards in his senior campaign. At 6’3″ Kevin White has an excellent catch radius and exhibits natural hands. White is excellent in the air as well, he shows a great ability to adjust his body. A question going into the combine was his straight line speed. However, after the 4.35 in Indianapolis he has truly shown he is a complete wide receiver. Where Cooper distinguishes himself from White is the ability to create separation. Too many times on tape did you see a cornerback right on White. This is an aspect Kevin White must improve upon to be successful at the next level. However, White is right up there with Cooper when it comes to top wide receivers in the draft and can be an excellent NFL player at the next level.
