So that says that TK's scenario where we turn our 3rd plus the 6th/7th we get for Schaub into Mallett into something plausible. Personally, I'm still thinking Belichick wants that #33 pick and not the 65th pick.
Personally, I think that since we made the moves we have, we won't be pursuing Mallett. To me, it was either Mallett as the guy going forward or a rookie. If we traded for Mallett, we wouldn't be drafting a rookie QB; if we didn't trade for a QB (including Mallett), then we would.
Since we picked a FA QB instead of trading for one, the Mallett deal is off the table and we're probably drafting a QB at some point.
