[QUOTE=lageman4ever;4102432]Mallet was an outstanding selection by the Patriots.
Every single scouting report on Mallet stated he had all the tools to be a top QB in the NFL: height, vision, arm strength, college experience in a pro-style offense, etc. The only thing holding him back was his immaturity. A million dollar arm with a 10 cent head.
By going to the Pats, a team with an All Pro QB, Mallet has all the time in the world to mature outside of the limelight. On a bad team he'd have to play right away and deal with all of the on-field & off-field pressures. On the Pats he just sits on the bench. And his 3rd round status means the team can keep him there for his entire first contract if necessary and not have it be a financial burden. Mallet can learn from Brady how to be a top QB and team leader. And when Brady retires, Mallet may very well be the next generation.
The pick really was the worst nightmare for any Jets fan.[/QUOTE]
Im pretty sure the 3rd Ranked Defense in the NFL is shaking in their cleats.
