Quarterback not named Luck enters the draft

We were surprised by Thursday’s decision from Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck to stay in Stanford.  We were even more surprised by the decision from Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett to enter the draft.

We’re not surprised that Mallett chose to head to the NFL.  We’re surprised that he had any eligibility left.

John Taylor of CFT has the details.  (Yes, we’re trying to divert from traffic to the sister site.  If you don’t want the details, don’t click the link.)

    Mallett was faced with the choice between coming out with a second round grade or being a 25 year old NFL rookie.

    Mallet will be an average at best NFL quarterback. I doubt he’ll ever be able to get rid of his propensity to forget that the defense typically plays with eleven guys on the field.

    Hey Atlanta, You have to see what this kid said about Booby Petrino. “Playing in the NFL is a goal of mine and I am grateful to the people that have prepared me to take the next step. Coach (Bobby) Petrino is a winner, a man of character and the hardest worker I have ever seen” Really? Can’t wait to see his wonderlic score.

    Funny picture of Mallett. I don’t think there’s a whole lot going on up there in his head. He has the physical tools, but I really doubt his mental makeup. He just seems to make killer mistakes late in close games. That’s not the kind of thing that translates well to the NFL.

    CFT Article Title: “To the surprise of no one, Mallett enters NFL draft”

    PFT Article Quote: “We were even more surprised by the decision from Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett to enter the draft.”

    Great working together, huh?

    This guy is the real deal. Whoever gets him will have their franchise QB for years.

    he really could have benefited mentally from another year in college. He’s gonna be eaten alive if he falls to a struggling team.

    Did Mallett declare AFTER Luck decided to stay in Stanford?

    If so, that’s a smart move, money wise.

    Luck has all the time in the world to get his degree in architectural design. Go to the NFL.

    Mallett has nothing to lose going to the NFL now. Even if he’s a later first-round or second-round bust, he’ll still make more money in the next four years than I will in the next 30 working my job.

    There’s been a lot of “unknown” QBs that turned out to be great. Warner, Brees, Brady….Mallett has every bit of chance of becoming a good pro in the NFL’s game of QB Craps. Roll the dice, kid. Even a failed NFL QB is a lot cooler than me, lol.

    Ryan Mallett = Chad Henne.

    Even looks like him. lol
