    Most of the big time busts at QB have been guys that have big arms and small brains. Jeff George, etc. So any time I see someone boasting about a QB with a big arm, I doubt it.

    Apparently there are some concerns and issues of the Matt Jones variety.

    Mallett is actually more like Kerry Collins, he doesn't have the long release that Leftwich has.

    His stock is dropping because of reported drug use, not his ability as a passer. That's a big character concern for teams but even so he won't fall to the 3rd round, I still think he goes in the top 40 picks.

    No way Mallett falls to the 3rd. At the absolute latest, he will go mid to early 2nd I think.

    I wouldn't draft Cam Newton in the first and I wouldn't draft him to be a QB either. Since that is what I'm sure he will demand, I just wouldn't draft Cam.

    For some reason I can see Mallett getting drafted, becoming someone's problem for three or four seasons, getting released, finding himself and then becoming a good player.

    I see him as a QB that will beat the Dallas defense like a drum for years to come ala Randy Moss. Of course everybody will claim they knew how good he was gonna be etc.....
    Now, can someone explain the Locker lovefest???

    I haven't seen a lovefest for Locker in quite some time. I think many people think he's basically a 3rd round or later prospect. Maybe 2nd round if someone falls in love with him and reaches for him.

    Everybody did know how good Moss was going to be. The question was could he stay out of trouble. And he wasn't going to stay out of trouble if he was in Dallas.

    Dallas can pass on Mallett. Mostly because they have Tony Romo. I don't think Mallett is going to be special. Even if I am wrong, Dallas still has Romo, so getting Mallet would not solve anything.

    Dallas better resolve the o-line issues first no doubt but even then I have doubts that Romo will ever be more than Danny White was. I would have no issues with grabbing Mallett and putting Romo on notice while working on other concerns. I think with the right start Mallett can be special.
