Sources: Teams fine with Mallett's interviews

While the media sessions at the combine are important, the case of Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett demonstrates that they are just one component of the glorified job fair. Despite a Saturday afternoon media session in which some felt Mallett was caustic, and evasive when questioned about the drug allegations surrounding him, most league franchises that subjected the former Razorbacks star to an interview came away impressed with him. 

The Sports Xchange surveyed officials from five teams that met with Mallett at combine, and four said they had no problems with his responses to the drug allegations or with his demeanor. 

“The guy looked us right in the eyes and didn’t dodge anything at all,” said a high-ranking executive from an NFC team that is considering its quarterback options in the 2011 draft. “If we don’t take him, it certainly won’t be a reflection of his time with us (in the interview).” 

Mallett, the No. 4-rated quarterback in this class by NFLDraftScout.com, was arguably the most impressive prospect throwing the ball during the Sunday on-field session for quarterbacks. He exhibited the strong arm most scouts expected of him and was very accurate as well. More accurate, notably, than former Auburn star and Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton, clearly the most celebrated player among the 330 prospects on-hand

The physical difference wasn’t the lone disparity between the players, said an assistant coach from an AFC club that might be interested in choosing a quarterback in the draft in two months. 

“(Mallett) wasn’t as self-absorbed as the other guy,” the official said. “We really had no problem with him. He was pretty (straightforward), and he was very good, too, at (diagramming plays) on the chalkboard.”
