Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallet has lined up a couple of pre-draft visits with teams that have question marks at quarterback.
ESPN’s James Walker reports that Mallett will hold a private workout with the Dolphins on Tuesday in Arkansas,and that he’ll also visit Miami April 14-15. Between those two appointments with the Dolphins, Mallett has a workout in Cincinnati with the Bengals at the end of this week.
Both the Bengals and the Dolphins could have a need at quarterback in the draft. With the Bengals, it’s not clear whether Carson Palmer is willing to return to Cincinnati. With the Dolphins, it’s not clear whether they want Chad Henne to return to Miami.
Mallett has an outstanding arm, but he’s awkward on his feet and there are questions about his mental makeup. It would be shocking if the Bengals are considering Mallett at No. 4 overall, and it’s probably more likely that Cincinnati is hoping the reports that Mallett will fall out of the first round prove true.
