I think the reason the thread started was the fact that everyone is paying attention to him. Also it's rarely overlooked guys who become great QB's, Brady and Warner are exceptions to the rule.

I was hoping his cards would be cheap and I would of invested(gamble) about 500$ in him. It very well my take 3 to 5 years to see him in a starting position but if Brady gets hurt his card would sky rocket before he even plays a full game.

Concerns about Mallett can't be dismissed as simple nondescript "character issues." He admitted during combine interviews that he used drugs. He allegedly used marijuana and cocaine. There are numerous reports that his use was beyond recreational, and "addiction fears" kept him out of the 2010 draft.

I feel bad for the guy if he has a problem, but I'd be extremely hesitant to invest any money in a 2nd-string drug-addicted QB.

QFT, I am a die hard Razorback fan, so there is no anti-Mallett bias here.

I was down there when he was a Redshirt Sophmore & Junior (before he got to play and his first season starting), (from a reliable source who partook in the drinking after Mallett left) he went to a party at Frank Broyles' house and did a keg stand, a couple rails and ran off with a Gymnast draped over his shoulders. Guy's a Gronk like animal, I hope for his sake, his family's sake and all of Razorback Nation's sake, he gets his #@#@#@#@ together.

This is coming from a huge Hog fan, love the guy to death, but he seriously needs to ditch the "tall-man syndrome" attitude. Yes Ryan, your #@#@#@#@ does indeed stink, just like everyone else's.

His feet need major improvement if he is ever going to make it. His foot speed is much slower than Brady's and he has a bad tendency to "zip" passes unnecessarily on short throws, especially when flustered or under duress in the pocket. With McDaniels there again, he might be in decent hands.

Plain and simple, future speculation has pushed his prices far beyond what one would think makes sense. With the emergence and subsequent success of guys like Matt Flynn, this will probably happen more often. However, at current price points, there are so many other players with better risk/reward ratios that I wouldn't understand investing too much in Mallet right at this moment.

I wonder how many folks said this about Rodgers (probably what's driving this)? Not doubting your theory though.

I know we have a bad rep but damn, every person with ANY flaw in attitude or gets in trouble with the law is not automatically fit for the raiders...

I don't have a large invesent in Mallett...yet...
Prices WILL go down in the 2012 season provided Brady is healthy. The assumption is that Mallett will be the heir apparent for the Pats. Maybe, maybe not. Either way, a guy with his talent WILL get a shot to start in the NFL. And, when that happens, his current card prices will look like bargains.
I am HOPING he's the heir apparent to the Pats offense and that he's successful. If not, I plan on having moved most of the major pieces to cover the cost of some select PC cards. Time will tell who's right, but the overall point is a guy with his talent is going to get a shot to start, and newly minted starting QB's cardboard spikes when it's announced. It's apretty simple collecting decision for me since he's on the team I cheer.

I don't care where Mallett is on the depth chart I still think people believe he will be good because he is learning from Brady.

It's not always the case that it is the guy nobody is paying attention to. Both Mannings had eyes on them at all times. John Elway was a #1 overall. Troy Aikman(freakin' Bruin) and Terry Bradshaw were other #1's that lived up to expectations. I'm not discrediting Mallett, but I am thinking that you are discrediting Newton quite a bit. (Dalton probably too). Guys like rodgers, Brady, Favre, etc. are the exceptions, not the rule.

Soap box much? this sort of thinking "drug addicted qb" is why guys fall far from where they should be drafted like randy moss and make gms look like idiots for paszsing on them. As for your fears pal if he was some addict you would have heard about that by now. He was just a kid in college who partied. I thought everyone did that. If your too stupid to not think that 90 percent or more professional atheletes try drugs and alchol in collge you need to grow up because they do. The difference is that some guys get caught and some don't. They pretty much all do it

I assume by your rambling incoherent reply and quick assent to anger that you are too young to remember Todd Marinovich.

I really liked the part where you said "if this was true we would have heard about it," completely disregarding the two articles I linked. No, not every player in the NFL, especially not ones who become franchise QB's, have drug problems.

I await your next response between third and fourth period.

Ryan mallet has a tremendous arm. His decision making is absolutely confounding at times if not downright atrocious in college. He's a cocky version of Drew Bledsoe but not as talented. That's why he wasnt a first rounder.

He had (I'm pretty sure he got his life on track after being drafted, at least he better have) habitual drug & alcohol issues at Arkansas, not just "sampling". He partied like Ryan Leaf.
