No surprise here
I was never convinced by any stretch that Mallett was going Top 10.
That was part of my Locker is going higher than anyone thinks point.
Tell me scouts wont meet w/ those two guys and come away thinking they better grab Locker
It may help Locker marginally, but I don't believe anything significant.
Two things can be equally true: First, Locker is head and shoulders above Mallett in terms of being a "safer" pick (charachter). Second, Locker is still not a Top 10 QB based on his own merit.
#Auburn QB Cam Newton needs to come out ASAP to talk, can't be any worse than #Arkansas Ryan Mallett...guy will look like a saint
Don't trust #Arkansas QB Ryan Mallett...end of story, guy rubs me the wrong way and he wouldn't be on my draft board. Period. #NFLDRAFT

Mallett pretty much laughed at reports of possible drug use by him. "I can't control that. That's why I don't even want to talk about it.". Mallett asked a fourth time about allegations, and why not flatly deny them now. Says he will "talk about it with the teams." Interview over. Says he's discussed the rumors with teams here and that "everything is good."
"Anyone got a Scranton for Ryan Mallett?"
I cant remember a QB who succeeded going into his career w character concerns
Apparently Dan Marino fell due to character concerns..he turned out pretty good..not too sure if it is true though, his class was before my time
I remember my uncle telling me about some nose candy rumors but I havent heard much about that in a ling time
actually a lot of people figured that a couple of teams that were drafting real late spread the rumors on Marino.
Mallet has had talk about his bad habits everywhere he has been. This guy is a walking red flag.
I have never seen such ridiculous assault on a player.
thats all I heard RUMORS
got some real proof ?????????
if there was proof he would be in jail or ready to stand trial.
If he is there in the second round , is he worth the pick ?
Locker's not a knucklehead, so I can see it, MB.
Rumors is all we had on Quincy Carter until his release and then we found out all the dirty details.
Im jail for smoking weed and being an abrasive brat w/ no work ethic or leadership skills?
Dude's an arrogant arse who has "bust" written all over him. He has way too much confidence in his arm and constantly tries to fit balls into double and triple coverage. Luckily for him, he throws so damn hard that DBs drop a lot of potential INTs. Bama, LSU and A&M all dropped three this year against him.
Yeah, because that's how that works
Translation: He scorched my poor lil' aggies TWICE in Jerry world.
Wait, a college kid using drugs ????????? what
Newton has been accused of being involved in a "pay to play" scheme. This speaks to the kid's character.
Newton was failing classes before he got kicked out of Florida.
He also stole laptops from dorm. It's not just pay for play that is questionable.
These have to be considered when evaluating prospects with character issues
The result of a Mobile taxi cab conversation in which the poster learned that Fairley is a close friend of JaMarcus Russell. That alone could sink his draft stock. Is that fair? Not at all. Asked in the guise of question it has a little more legitimacy, but still represents the kind of information that fuels nasty rumors.
