New York Giants Phil Simms: Arkansas QB Ryan Mallet is a Top 10 Player In 2011 NFL Draft
Apparently Phil Simms—former New York Giants QB, Super Bowl MVP, and current CBS NFL analyst—believes Ryan Mallet should be drafted in the top 10 of the 2011 NFL Draft. He believes is so much that he would quit his job if it didn’t turn out that he was one of the ten best players in this class.
“If he’s not a top 10 player [in the draft], then I quit,” Simms said.
I like the fact that he is strong in his convictions, but I don’t know that he is honed in on this feeling. While Mallet does have incredible size and arm strength, he is slow and not good at facing a pass rush. He gets flustered when pressured early and has trouble avoiding sacks.
He also has some minor character concerns that have caused some red flags. He may in fact have been a first round pick if he didn’t get in to trouble at Arkansas.
Hopefully Simms doesn’t actually quit his job over this, but we’ll have to wait at least 3-4 years before evaluating Mallet’s success in the NFL.
