Re: 2011 NFL Draft

Mallett absolutely would not fit our system, and I think Shanahan knows that, but he's the guy at the quarterback position who is now likely undervalued. In the second round, he's a steal.

I've come around to this same opinion. I worry about the immaturity rumors, but until you hear something substantiated, he seems like a great prospect, albeit one who has extremely limited mobility. Still, if I have to choose between a guy who runs a 4.5 but is scattershot and a guy who is a statue but has a golden arm, the dude with the arm wins every time.

One would like to believe that our coaches are flexible enough to adapt their system to a less than system-ideal prospect. (I know, we didn't adapt to McNabb, but I don't know how you adapt to a qb throwing bounce passes.)

Re: 2011 NFL Draft

The limited mobility is my biggest concern about Mallett, because I think it hinders development and sets a guy up initially for failure in the NFL.

But that's why you wouldn't take a guy with otherwise top ten ability in the the top ten: because he's missing something from the complete package. Love his value in the second round though, even if he doesn't pan out.

I like Gabbert a lot, and at the end of the day, Gabbert and Mallett have draft profiles that are more similar than they are different. All of the small things say: draft Gabbert, but after the 20th pick, Gabbert won't be there, and Mallett likely still will be.

From what I've watched of Mallet, which is more than any of the other big name prospects, his delivery doesn't seem to fit the west coat O - too slow. He has that classic 7-step drop deep ball look. Seems to me it would be like trying the JC in W Coast O experiment all over again.

Re: 2011 NFL Draft

NFL.com news: Broncos, Titans, Vikings among teams to work out QB Locker

Denver trying to use a smokescreen?

?????????

Terrible comparison. Just awful. Dude could be a bust, but try and pick a QB with any kind of remote similarity at least.

Locker's character and intangibles are off the charts and he is crazy mobile.

Ryan Leaf was a very different player/prospect.

Re: 2011 NFL Draft

I guess I didn't make my sarcasm apparent. I should have also stated I liken Tony Romo to Ryan Leaf. But that's only because he is on the Cowgirls. I don't think Locker will be Ryan Leaf, but he definitely will not be a superstar or a successful starter IMO either.

3 times the QB of Leaf?

That puts him at on the Cary Conklin level.
