Seahawks warming up to Mallet?

Published on April 1, 2011 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider attended Mallet’s pro day a few weeks ago. And now Rob Rang of NFLDraftScout.com is reporting that Mallet will travel to Seattle for a private workout.

At first blush, Mallet would not seem to be a good fit for Seattle, with the expectation that the Seahawks will move to more of a short passing game with new offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell now in the fold.

However, when you watch Mallet’s highlights from college, you see a lot of roll outs off play action and accurate, deep throws down the field, all things that Pete Carroll likes to do offensively.

I still have some concerns about his lack of athletic ability, evidenced by his 5.37 40-yard time at his pro day. And teams still have to evaluate his character issues. But this article does a nice job of debunking all of the rumors that are out there about Mallet, and also provides excellent video and analysis on how Mallet’s skill set will transition to the pro game. It’s definitely worth a read this morning.

Mike Lombardi of the NFL Network talks to Brock Huard and Mike Salk of ESPN Seattle, saying that he believes Mallet is the best fit for the Seahawks.

Some of you asked for more measurables from the rest of the players at UW’s pro day. You can find that here. Receiver D’Andre Goodwin also ran a 4.50 40-yard time according to Rang.

More Rang: He says Washington quarterback Jake Locker helped himself by going 38 of 40 during his pro day.

Lombardi still views Locker as more of a prospect and not a first-round pick.

Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated, who like Rang and Lombardi attend Washington’s pro day, discusses the wide range of evaluations for Locker.
