interesting line of thinking with the pats



15. Dolphins: Ryan Mallett (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=6470), quarterback, Arkansas.
Miami’s front office has made its desire to implement a high-octane passing attack clear, and Chad Henne (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=4684) barely held off Tyler Thigpen (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=4284) and Chad Pennington (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=858) last year. The Patriots’ scheduling of Tuesday’s pre-draft visit with Mallett indicates they’re doing intel on a player they anticipate landing with a division rival. Sorry mock drafters: The Fins aren’t taking Mark Ingram (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=6471) at 15.

People are down on ingram because he doesn't have home run speed and may have a degenerative knee. Also rb value is at an all time low. It's a passing league now.

I know that but that doesnt take away how good of a running back he is, after all he is a former heisman winner who had he came out last year would have been a top ten pick.

I think it is silly to think that the Patriots are just doing homework because they think the Dolphins MIGHT get him.

More likely scenario is the Patriots annual "Hey, crappy teams...We like Mallett, so if you like him all it will take to trade up with us is your first rounder next year!"

The knee and lack of speed actually do take away from how good he is... Even if he's on the level of AP or CJ (which he's definitely not)...what have those two ever done for their team in regard to winning championships? Running backs are throw aways now.

yeah, i think its about BB gettin some early 2nd rounder team to trade up. He said in an article that trading up or down will depend largely what happens to the QB's in rd. one-lookin to trade down from #28

Because he has a degenerative condition in his knee, and that since RB's can be found practically ANYWHERE nowadays, the need for drafting a RB in the first round is declining.

Mallett took well over twice as many sacks in the last couple years as Kaepernick did.

Mallett is going to be a sack taking machine in the NFL and Ireland and Sparano have no intention whatsoever of drafting him. Classic smokescreen.

The mockers are pathetically gullible.

Yea but i bet if you take away AP or CJ then both those teams will crumble and be at a state similar to the '07 Dolphins or the winless Lions. Yea a running back wont win you a championship but theyre a big piece to winning one. I'd also rather us take a player that will be as good as AP than a QB who potentially can be a bust in the first.

Mallett also dropped back to pass almost 200 more times over the past 2 years than did Colin Kaepernick.... except Mallett was doing so against defenses like LSU, Alabama, Ohio St., Texas A&M, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi St., Auburn, South Carolina, etc...

With an offensive line that switches sides... there is no "right" and "left" side of Arkansas' line.

When you're facing Von Miller's, Marcel Dareus', Courtney Upshaw's, Cameron Heyward's, Pernell McPhee's, Nick Fairley's, Justin Houston's, Drake Nevis', Kentrell Lockett's, Jermaine Cunningham's, Carlos Dunlap's, Cliff Matthews', and Devin Taylor's every week, you're going to get sacked a lot more.... do you have ANY idea how many 1st round picks you're looking at there?

Hell, Von Miller was all over Kaepernick like a cheap suit every time he took a snap in Mobile...
