The board seems to favor trading Mallett for a top 50 pick? When originally drafted Mallett was presumably a first round talent with off-field issues and was considered a Patriot's steal. Yes, he needed development but I've read very little about his progress. Does anyone have information about his development...as evidenced in practice (because he has seen little PT on the field)?
The last information I read about Mallett (and it was dated information) was that his effectiveness in long passes was very good but he struggled with the intermediate passes, with recognition of defensive vulnerabilities, with his progression though 1st, 2nd, 3rd passing options etc.
Wasn't Mallett the heir apparent to TB? Why the readiness to trade him for less than a first round pick?
"with his progression though 1st, 2nd, 3rd passing options etc."
"Why the readiness to trade him for less than a first round pick?"
because i dont think he can be a top qb. physiclaly hes got it. mentally the game has not slowed down for him like it does for good qbs.
nor does he have that "it" energy for leading in face of adversity. now if you had tebows "it" leadership , mallets body and bradys brain, wed have and all pro.
seems theres better qbs in college: mccarron, bridgewater, manziel, etc
I want McCarron... proven winner, good size/height, good arm, accurate, protects the football, smart, competitive... dates smokeshows... would fit right in down in Foxboro.
yes i spoke of drafting him on this thread this year, a little reminiscent of yong brady. protects the football, rises to the occasion when a big play is needed, leadership, unfazed by big gaem/big moment.
though if i had a shot at manziel....
