    Is Bradford better then Mallet?

    I see the 2011 Draft Class seems to have better QBs, Mallet and Locker. Is Bradford better than Mallet?

    Re: Is Bradford better then Mallet?

    There is also Andrew Luck out of Stanford... the 2011 draft class will likely rival the Manning, Rivers and Big Ben draft class in terms of QB. That's one of the reasons I'd support a trade out of 1 this year if we picked up an extra first next year, we could probably land one of the big 3 with our original pick, and grab a big WR target for him as well (there are 3 beastly WR's coming up too) with the second. Focus this draft on building a dominant defense (lots of defensive depth in this years draft) and then fix the offense next year. One (if not two) picks would definitely be in range to grab one of those quarterbacks, and the other should be in range to draft a big play WR like Michael Floyd, AJ Green or Julio Jones. We also might be able to trade S-Jax (he'd be 28 when the season started and would be 30 before this offense would start really clicking) and grab a guy like Mark Ingram... oh what an offense that would be.

    As for is one better than the other, I'm not sure. Mallet has a big time arm, but is less accurate than Bradford. We'll need to wait and see I guess.

    Re: Is Bradford better then Mallet?

    Next year's draft is always better. The only reason people think Mallet is going to be better is because the analyst have not broken his game down into pieces yet. Last years draft when Bradford didnt come out we were all excited about the next year because Bradford was extremely accurate, threw a tight spiral, and won the heisman. Now we are worried about his arm strength, his ability to preform in a pro style offense, and his shoulder.

    So the question is, what negatives come out about Mallet when he is about to come out for the draft? Will we be told that Mallet doesnt have the arm strength, or maybe that Mallet cant handle the pressure in the pocket, maybe we are told that Mallet can't transition into the NFL. What if Mallet injures his shoulder next year?

    You can't keep waiting until next year's draft to fill your need. The only reason that even seems like a good idea is because you dont know the negatives about those prospects.

    I prefer Bradford over Mallet.

    Even though Mallet is massive, he has poor mobility, poor footwork, has lapses of judgements, is not very accurate, is very unpolished, and has very little experience.

    Kinda reminds me of a even more raw version of Joe Flacco.

    Re: Is Bradford better then Mallet?

    Does it matter? We don't know where we'll be drafting next year. We could win 4 games and not be drafting in the top five.

    To answer the question directly, though, I'm not convinced that either is better than Bradford. Mallett isn't that accurate. In 2008, he completed less than half his passes. He has one decent season, and all the interest seems to be based on the player could be rather than what he has accomplished so far. Locker can run, but Bradford is probably still the better pure passer.

    I'm fine with Bradford but it depends if he will start this year or not.

    Bradford without taking a sec to think about it. Only thing Mallet has on Bradford is a ridiculous arm. Bradford has an above average arm, accuracy, smarts, ya da ya da ya.

    A chick always looks better at a distance....

    Mallett has great physical tools, but he needs to refine his game. Right now, his accuracy is sub-par. We'll have to see how he develops.

    If Mallett were in this draft, I'd rate Bradford above him.

    Mallett broke his foot in conditioning drills. Out for four months....obviously he's "injury prone"...
