Ryan Mallett, Arkansas*: I really believe much of Mallett’s accuracy problems—he completed just 55.8 percent of his passes last year—are maturity based. The more games he plays, the more defenses he sees, the more decisions he makes, the sharper he becomes. Imagine that from a guy who had a TD-to-INT ratio of 30-7 last year.
Jake Locker, Washington: Every scout is in love with Locker, but if he puts up another sub-60 percent completion season, he will be dissected almost as much as Tim Tebow was. Don’t know that I’ve ever seen a quarterback this unfinished with so little criticism from scouts.
