Edelman v. Pat White
I can't find the link right now, but one thing that caught my eye on Reiss' blog was that last year, the Dolphins used one of their 30 official visits on Julian Edelman.
Given what we know now, it makes me wonder if White was ever truly on the Patriots' radar, or if they were just trying to bait the Dolphins into taking him too high. Aside from one 33-yard run, White accomplished very little his rookie season (he averaged about 3 YPC on ~30 carries, including that long one), and went 0-for-5 [sic] as a passer.
And, as patchick showed in another thread, Edelman may not be the better passer, but he's definitely the better athlete:

White 4.55/2.63/1.60 35.0 09'09" 4.42 7.06
Edelman 4.52/2.58/1.52 36.5 10'03' 3.92(!) 6.62(!)
