Unfortunately, McShay and I do agree on a couple of things, and one is Ryan Mallet.
Mallet will probably end up going in the first round of the draft, but I would have to agree with McShay that Mallet is overrated.
Teams will fall in love with his physical features—Mallet is 6'7'' and has a cannon for an arm—but these are also the common features of an NFL bust. Anyone remember Ryan Leaf?
Mallet has also had character questions throughout his career, and once NFL teams figure out how to stop him, he will be out of the league in no time.
We saw it in the Sugar Bowl. Ohio State rushed him all night, and when they got there, they rattled Mallet. Some scouts are questioning his footwork, claiming that when rushed, he will not properly set his feet. The Ohio State game shows this, and once NFL teams take a look at this tape, they will know how to stop Ryan Mallet.
