Ryan Mallet and Jake Locker both did really well at the NFL Combine, and I wanted to give you guys a little overview of how they did. I hope you guys enjoy reading this, and please remember to comment with your opinions after reading.
Mallett, in my opinion, was by far the best passer at the combine. He made all of the throws and had the strongest arm of all of the QB hopefuls. I don't understand why he is only considered the third best prospect behind Blaine Gabbert and Cam Newton.
He has some character questions, and that should be taken into consideration, but even with those problems I still consider him to be the top quarterback in the draft. He can make more throws than anyone else, and he is the type of player that teammates will rally behind and fight for.
Locker wasn't as good as Mallett, but he did help his stock because he made a lot of tough throws, as well. Locker has been falling on almost everybody's draft radar these past few months, so it was important for him to show up and perform well.
Locker did have some trouble with his shorter throws, which was odd because he did really well on the tougher, deeper throws. He had been having accuracy questions before the combine, and his shorter throws will only add more questions about his accuracy.
All in all, though, Locker improved his draft stock at the combine. He showed that he can throw with the best of this year's prospects, especially later in the drills when he started making the tough throws, and he definitely showed up with a 4.59 40-time. We already knew he was fast, so the 40 yard dash didn't push up his stock, but it is nice to have a faster quarterback.
I, personally, would love for the Dolphins to get Mallett. I believe he is the best QB prospect in this year's draft and that he will turn into one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. He can already make any throw that he will ever need to make in the NFL, and he is an intense leader that will always come ready to play.
So you heard it here, folks. Ryan Mallett will do better than Cam Newton, Blaine Gabbert, Jake Locker, and any other QB prospect in this draft.
Thanks for reading, now let me know who you would like Miami to draft and who you think the best QB in this year's draft is.
