Potential Wildcat options in NFL Draft
White ran for an NCAA Division I-record 4,385 yards and threw 56 touchdowns. He is considered by many to be too small (6-feet, 185 pounds) to be a starting quarterback. He could be converted into a receiver or punt and kick returner. He also could present serious problems for opposing defenses in the Wildcat.
The multitalented tight end lined up everywhere for Rice, including the Wildcat. Casey typically took a direct snap in short-yardage situations. He had six rushing touchdowns and two throwing TDs for the Owls last season. He was a high school quarterback and was slated to play that position next season at Rice. He doesn't have the speed of some of the other Wildcat weapons, but unlike other players on this list, he's used to taking direct snaps.
The Gators used the lightning-quick Harvin all over the field. It's not clear exactly how NFL teams will use him, because he's a bit of 'tweener -- part WR, part RB. The Wildcat might be a great way to get the ball in his hands to take advantage of his speed.
McGee has gotten a lot of attention lately, even though he was benched for part of his senior season because of a shoulder injury. He was a prolific rusher in college (he ran for 899 yards his junior year), but has a better arm than most running quarterbacks. He's considered an intriguing mid-to-late round prospect who could see the field sooner if lined up in the Wildcat.
A former high school quarterback, Williams took direct snaps at Penn State and ran for 243 yards as a senior. He only completed one pass last season, but he's considered by many to be more of a threat with his arm than many other Wildcat options.
McCoy ran the Wildcat successfully at Pittsburgh and might be more effective in an unconventional format every once in a while. He's on the small side at 5-11, 198 pounds, which makes some scouts question his ability to take a pounding in the NFL.
Maclin is only 6-feet, which could be the only reason he'll fall below Michael Crabtree as the second receiver taken in the draft. Once Maclin gets into the NFL, teams are going to want to get the ball in his hands however they can. Maclin could be used the same way the Eagles used DeSean Jackson in the Wildcat last season.
Edelman returned punts and played defense on the punt unit in college, and could be moved over to receiver in the NFL. He's very fast and would keep defense off balance with his arm if he were in the Wildcat.
