View Full Version : For Those Who Wanted Mallett last year at 15...

and you want to stay away from Tannehill this year, what would be your reasoning?

03-26-2012, 05:47 PM
My guess would be that its because the Draft Winds saying Tannehill would be a good pick hasn't come out yet. :d-day:

I think Mark Colombo would have probably gotten Ryan Mallet killed. Tannehill will sit a year atleast, but he is much more athletic than Mallet . . . w/o the character concerns and off the field issues. To be fair, Mallet had the most talented arm in that draft . . . hell probably the most talented since Matt Stafford.

Under the right circumstances, Mallet will do great.

I think Tannehill will likely do better - long run - under more circumstances. Mobility is a big deal - I think - in today's NFL, especially playoff time.

Mallet is/was a better QB and it wasn't as high of a pick. If not for the character concerns with Mallet he probably would have been the 2nd QB taken. Tannehill in most previous drafts would Never be a 1st round QB.

Disregarding the fact that Ryan Mallett's arm is a freak show, Mallett is the better quarterback.

I think Ryan Mallett would've been fine had he started as a rookie, and likely would've started had he went to any of the teams where the rookie QB's that ended up starting went.

None of the rookie QB's that started last year would've started in New England behind Tom Brady.

Miami wouldn't have been forced to pass up any truly elite talent at #15 in last year's draft to take Mallett. That's not the case if they reach for Tannehill at #8, particularly in this draft.

ryan mallet could be a big time talent, but we will never know. tannehill has more to offer bc of his athletic ability. i just dont think we should make the same mistake as last year and pass up a qb like tannehill (mallet last year). i would rather get tannehill later than 8 but it doesnt look like that will be the case, but who knows. if we want an athletic mallet just wait untill the third and draft brock osweiler

risk-reward -taking a talented qb with off the field issues in the 2nd round,

risk-reward -taking a slow running back with ball security issues.

Can't believe anyone wanted Ryan Mallett last season.

Can't believe anyone wanted Blaine Gabbert last season.

Mallet can make throws Tannehill can only dream about

I wanted Mallet, but I was thinking more like the 2nd round last year. I also like Tannehill, but I dont like him at #8.

The difference is that Mallett's flaws were off the football field, and Tannehills flaws are on the field.

Which ones ?

03-27-2012, 08:09 PM
Why not trade a 5th for Mallet?

... see what I did there?

Mallet can make throws Tannehill can only dream about

and Jeff George could make throws that Montana, Phil Simms and Steve Young could only dream about. Problem is, that's all he had, a great arm.
Mallett has a good arm and that's it.
Tannehill has athleticism that Mallett can only dream about

03-27-2012, 08:49 PM
Miami would be much better off now with Mallet on the roster over Daniel Thomas

Another bonehead move by Miami

03-28-2012, 08:08 PM
I think whatever Tannehill lacks, he makes up for in smarts, athleticism, leadership, and yes, character. That is why Mallett fell, and Tannehill is being talked about in top ten. Just my opine.

I take Tannehill on trade down to 17 or so. Big Value. Otherwise, give me a pro bowl G who can pull with absolute class and distinction with nastiness that supplies a bigger need than RT IMO provided Murtha can make a comeback.

Ryan Mallet is a statue with a good arm.
