08:08 AM ET 03.26 | Are the 49ers about to add some versatile depth at quarterback? Former Miami Dolphins quarterback Pat White will get a shot to show [Niners coach Jim Harbaugh] that he has the read-option skill-set to fill the 49ers' roster opening for a third quarterback. Harbaugh called the former record-setting University of West Virginia star to set up a workout after White's relaunch during a private showing for 10 teams on March 14. The 49ers were among 29 of 32 teams in attendance that day and watched White's hour-long workout after the WVU Pro Day. "Coach and I had a conversation about me coming in to work out," White told USA TODAY Sports on Sunday. "We haven't set up a formal date."

He might be a good backup, not much more.

"versatile depth" is not the same as quality depth

This is a repeat thread. One of Pat's relatives must be an intern.

As I recall, he was a dud with Miami.

Welker was no where near the dud White was. White couldn't even make it through one game without getting hurt. Not that he was effective in any way in the game befere he got knocked out.

This guy stinks , and he throws like a girl . The only way I can see Harbaugh even taking a look at this guy is probably as a favor to someone he knows in the college ranks .

Belichick and the Patriots' front office didn't think so. They were impressed whenever they played the Fish. But, it does take a team to make anyone look good.

Based on what I had read, White was his own worst enemy. He was a slacker. If he has his head on straight this time around, he may be worth a roster spot.

Has he learned to throw an accurate pass?

SF is an evolving system. Pro style no more.
