Ryan Mallett: I'm a lot like Tom Brady

The Patriots drafting Ryan Mallett in the third round of the NFL Draft was arguably the biggest surprise of the entire weekend.

When it happened, though, I actually pointed out to some colleagues that, if you take out of all of Tom Brady's success and remove the obvious behavioral differences between Brady and Mallett, they're not so different. Thankfully, someone finally agrees with me. And it's Ryan Mallett, of course.

"I think it’s a perfect fit after watching film with the coaches when I was there. And me and Tom are kind of the same," Mallett said per the Providence Journal. "We’re not fleet of foot, obviously. We don’t run fast. We pick defenses apart and we know what’s going to happen before the snap or we react post snap and that’s why I think I’m like him a lot."

Look, it sounds ridiculous to say "Ryan Mallett is a lot like Tom Brady," because Brady has mad rings, a great-looking wife, beautiful hair and a lot of success in the NFL.

Mallett has a weird voice, apparently lacks the punctuality to arrive on team any time he meets with an NFL team, and has no rings.

But all of their current differences aside, the guy who just left Arkansas and the guy who left Michigan in 2000 aren't really all that totally different, in terms of how they play football.

They both posted really slow 40 times, they're both reasonably sized dudes (Mallett's like 30 pounds heavier, but three inches taller) and they both have big arms.

Is Mallett as accurate as Brady? Well, no. But if rookie Brady was as accurate as 2011 Brady, we wouldn't have to hear about the "Tom Brady pick" when No. 199 rolls around every single year.

If he wasn't an athlete we wouldn't care about some stupid partying and smoking pot wow man it's the end of the world if something like this happensjust supid. I don't much like the guy but give a break he already lost a ton of money because of rumors but he ended up one of the best places he could of and if i was him i'd be thankful the Bengals didn't take me. No he he's not Tom Brady but someday he could get close you never know.

"So both players are not well behaved off the field. One did drugs while another one got a woman pregnant, asked her to marry him so the child would not be born out of wedlock, but decided to leave her and the unborn child for another woman. Both have not taken responsiblity for their actions. But this article seems to be about what they can do on the football field so I will talk about that."

Biatch.

Manning's arm is probably below average. He depends on timing and anticipation. Manning definitely doesn't have a strong arm.
