After watching Jevan Snead crash and burn in the NFL draft, Mallet may be patting himself on the back for his decision to stay.
He didn't have the best season last year, much like Snead, and the draft results might have been similar.
But with one last season to show what he really can do and with the Pig Pen a little deeper than last year, Mallet may just have the chance to shine and bolster his draft position.
Even though technically he's a Jr., this is most likely his last year as he is a Sr. by classroom standards. The year of sitting out put him one behind.
People will be watching to see if he made the right choice to stay and many think he already has.
