This is a busy news day huh? Ryan Mallett, a potential X-factor in the 2010 draft has decided to stay with the Razorbacks for his junior season. Mallet, a red shirt sophomore who transferred from Michigan, has the tools to be a very high pick. He's raw though and like Jake Locker, has taken the decision to refine his talents in the college game. It could make for a bumper year at the top of round one in 2011. Locker, Mallett and Jerrod Johnson all are likely to be available as rocket armed throwers with great size. With Tim Tebow and Colt McCoy entering the NFL this year, it could be that the next college season and the draft is a battle of the big arms.
That contrasts to this year where there's slim pickings. Sam Bradford and Jimmy Clausen are the two expected to go early, but teams will have to think long and hard about investing top picks at the quarterback position in April.
