You would think it would be accurate if he wanted to truly play that position at the next level. To me , if I was getting the run around , I would just transfer .

We don't know his coaches are telling him that. It could be his confidence talking. There is still another QB at his school with college offers as well, albeit from smaller schools.

Let's face is... Stidham/White/Willis is an anomaly in college football.  You see teams with a Stidham/Willis type combo frequently, since the latter is a freshman, but to have 2 experienced QBs with the level of talent that Stidham and White bring on the same team... that's bama fan in Mensa rare.

I agree that there is a good chance #2 will jump, next year, to get a shot a proving themselves to the NFL, but Willis will likely wait his turn, and Gatewood/Nix will make solid backups for him until it's their turn.

Basically, all we need to do is continue to sign one baller a year at QB and we'll be set in the back-up department.

This is my opinion only, but I would think even White is well aware of his physical deficiencies.  I don't think he would be eyeing the NFL, or even CFL.  White seems to be an intelligent young guy. He is probably aware that a degree from Auburn is more valuable than a degree from West Georgia, or any other small programs. I think he stays graduates and becomes a grad assistant.

I certainly see it as a possibility, but I also see him as the level of player who can make 6 figures for a few years holding a clipboard on the sidelines of an NFL team. He's easily as good... more likely better... than any of the QBs that bama has placed int he NFL in recent years.

I will agree, Sean has a high football IQ.  I think he ends up coaching one way or the other.  But yeah, I could see him doing that.

If John Parker Wilson could do it, so can Sean. 

I'll concede his fragility, but the dude is both stronger and more mobile than almost anyone gives him credit for. It's frustrating, but I suppose I get that a lot of Auburn fans have come to assume that every QB should look like Cam or JJ, or run and throw like Marshall. "Strong enough and mobile enough to win football games" becomes "weak and slow". As for his perceived inaccuracy downfield, how many chances did he get at deep balls? How many times were they dropped? How many times did his freshman receivers run the right route? As others have mentioned, where was Jason Campbell at this stage of his career? Alas, Sean couldn't stay healthy long enough to prove it, and now we've brought in an elite, best-of-the-best, franchise, potential all-timer kind of guy, so we're going to have an even harder time arguing in favor of Sean going forward. I'm not 100% sure why I'm still bothering now as it is. I guess that horse just isn't dead enough for my liking. #seanwhite4eva 

All I know is that having Sean as our backup, with Malik behind him, gives me the warm fuzzies.

Yeah, I've said it before, and you alluded to it, but we still haven't seen Sean White's best. As for the NFL, with Stidham at Auburn, White's chances are going to be slim to none. Even if balled out the rest of his career, he would likely go undrafted. That doesn't mean he couldn't make a team, but I just think given his size, his injuries and his arm strength, the scales are weighted heavily against him.

I definitely think Sean has the mental makeup for the NFL. BUT he won't have the stats to make up what he lacks on the physical side to get drafted. The only way I see him making it is as an undrafted free agent. And even then it would have to be the perfect storm.
