"Mike White, I don't think always anticipates great, and he doesn't always get it out on time.  But when he does, he's got a cannon.  He has got a great arm.  He's got the traits.  Height and he's got size.  He's got a big arm".

 

Also, interesting that Scot McCloughan mentioned him.  He may be a drunk but he seems to really know his stuff.

"Mike White.  Some love on the streets for Mike White.  I remember talking to Scot McCloughan during the summer and he mentioned Mike White's name to me".

Ironically, I think the opposite is true now. His arm is adequate but not superb. However, he makes up for it with quick processing/reads, good accuracy, throwing with timing and anticipation, and exceptional ball placement within 5 yards of the LOS. The last is so under-appreciated. The way he throws screens/swings/slants is great because it allows the ball catcher to continue running in space without breaking stride. A far cry from Zach constantly throwing the ball into the dirt.

Did you see that throw to Corey Davis yesterday?  He doesn't need any stronger arm than what he showed on that throw.  In all honesty, I didn't think he had anything more than good zip till that throw.

The boy can throw it.
