In 2005 the Raiders drafted a tall, strong armed quarterback in the third round.
Flash forward to 2011 and the Raiders may find themselves drafting a quarterback they didn't expect to be around in the third round.
The Raiders would not be opposed to making this pick because they don't need Mallet to come in right away and be the starter. He can come in and compete for the third and maybe even the second-string spot.
Hue Jackson has said he'd love to add a young arm to the team. Questions about Mallet's character have been surfacing, but picking him in the third round to be a back up wouldn't be a bad investment.
Positions to watch: Offensive Guard and Tackle could easily be chosen here.
