Former West Virginia star and Miami Dolphins 2nd round pick Pat White is trying to make a comeback, and it seems he impressed a very important coach during his workout at West Virginia’s Pro Day. White told USA Today that he and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh had a conversation following that workout, and that a private workout for San Francisco will be scheduled for sometime in the near future. “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. I’m just going to make sure I keep working hard for when that day comes. “I pay attention to how his players react to Coach Harbaugh. They all want to win for him. And he seems to treat them how they want to be treated. I’m excited to get to know him on that level — if I do get that opportunity. I’m very optimistic about making it back to the NFL.” During the owners’ meetings last week, Harbaugh said he is looking for competition to push starting quarterback Colin Kaepernick. “We want competition at every position, and the quarterback position is no sacred cow position,” Harbaugh said. “It won’t be just about Colin. There’s a difference knowing that he’s the starter and who will get those first-team reps. So now we need to put a little heat on him: Let’s go compete with him, make him better. “That’s the way it works. You use all the avenues that you have, free agency and the draft.” If White can still play, it would definitely be a good pickup.  Before the Kaepernick’s and RG3′s, there was Pat White running the read option at West Virginia.
