Ryan Mallett   #15 QB

Height: 6-6   Weight: 250   Age: 29

Born: 6/5/1988 Batesville , AR

College: Arkansas

Experience: 8th season

High School: Texas HS [Texarkana, TX]









Draft 2011

Pick No.74

Selected By: New England Patriots

Round: 3

Pick (Overall): 10 (74)

Pick Analysis: Mallett has the arm strength and size of a franchise NFL quarterback but still needs to continue to develop his accuracy and decision-making consistency. Can drive the ball down field and hit the deep out. When drop mechanics are sound, shows the ability to stick the ball into tiny windows. Has played in pro-style systems and understands reads and progressions but is still prone to taking some risks. Release is natural and over-the-top. Exhibits leadership qualities on the field but front offices will want to further investigate his character and ability to take coaching. Mallett's a really enticing package and will likely come off the board in round one.
