2011 NFL Rookie Watch: Ryan Mallett
Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett has declared for the upcoming 2011 NFL Draft. The 6’6″, 238 pound strong-armed quarterback followed up his 3627 yard, 30 touchdown, 7 interception sophomore season with 3869 yards, 32 TDs, and 12 INTs in his junior year.
The decision makes sense considering he already lost a season when he transferred to Arkansas from Michigan. Not to mention he likely slid up a spot in quarterback rankings when Andrew Luck opted to return to Stanford.
He’ll likely go in the first round unless he completely falls on his face at the combine. Depending on where he lands, he could see the playing field in 2011. From a fantasy perspective, he should only draw attention in dynasty leagues.
