The Dolphins have spent extra time with Cam Newton, Christian Ponder, Ricky Stanzi, Andy Dalton and Colin Kaepernick, but when all is said and done, they may spend more hours with Mallett than any other quarterback on their board.
There’s debate over Mallett’s overall value, however. Some draft gurus project him as a second-round pick. Others see him as a legitimate possibility for Miami at the #15 spot in the first round.
Tim Graham of ESPN.com said yesterday that Dolphin fans might be able to relate to the former Razorback:
Mallett enters the NFL with multiple question marks despite a rifle arm and prolific statistics in a pro-style offense. Drug rumors have been persistent. On the field, he’s considered sloth-like in his movements. All the same was said about Dan Marino.
