I know it's less than the alleged "fair value", but it would fill our needs better than just sitting at #1 & taking Clowney.
The deal could be done prior to the draft & if it went down something like that, we could take Kalil Mack at #6 & send pick #37 to New England for Mallett. The net result is we still get a starting OLB, a starting QB, keep all of our current draft picks & pick up an extra 2nd round pick for next year. What would be wrong with that deal?
Sounds sweet. And we'd still have #33 to do with as we chose...
If you could get Atlanta to bite, you could have Rick Smith's job.
