Reports surfacing earlier today that teams are inquiring about Patriot’s backup QB Ryan Mallet. They are highlighted with Jeff Howe reporting the Browns have called the Patriots again with high interest. Also being reported the Patriots are looking for a second round pick for Mallet.
With the weak QB draft class this year and the high desire for a QB among teams, it almost seems certain the Patriots get a deal done here. If that happens, i’d expect the Patriots to stay in the first round and grab one of the guys I highlighted in my post from yesterday. Or maybe they feel ambitious and still trade out of the first round and get yet another selection. They could end up with three 2nd round picks, which I would be ecstatic for. I will keep this post updated with information regarding Mallet as it happens.
Update-Conflicting reports coming out now with the Browns having no interest in Ryan Mallet. A lot of smokescreens going out right now. Might not be the best idea to read into rumors until things are official, it seems.
