Ryan Mallett became the newest quarterback for the New England Patriots on Friday night, as Bill Belichick drafted the Arkansas Razorbacks gunslinger with the tenth pick in the third round (No. 74 overall) in the 2011 NFL Draft.
Mallett has quite the resume, throwing for 8,388 yards and 69 touchdowns in three seasons at Arkansas. Mallett was featured on ESPN's Sport Science in early April. Take a look at the breakdown of the Pats' newest quarterback.
Mallett does have some character questions, but you simply cannot deny his ability on the field. If groomed correctly (and considering Mallett will be playing under Tom Brady, I think it's a strong possibility), Mallett may become a start in the NFL.
