Ryan Mallett is as talented as any prospect in this year’s class. He has a great arm, can make all the throws, but character concerns have caused him to fall into round three. However, he lands in a great situation in New England with a strong locker room, a brilliant head coach and a quarterback in Tom Brady that he can sit and learn under.
If Mallett is going to make it in the NFL, this is the ideal place for him to do it, as he can be brought along slowly, learn what it means to be a professional and then unleash his freakish ability a couple years down the line.
Because if he ever does put it all together, the Patriots yet again might have come away with another steal at the QB position.
