In response to sportsbozo1's comment:
Regardless of what the wannabe talent graders here on BDC think Mallett is a better QB than anyone coming out in this years draft and that is pure fact,just by being TB's b/u for one year he has proffessional level training both on and off the field which automatically ensures he's a better QB than the prospects coming out this year! Though I'm not an evaluator of talent I would guess that he could be had for a second round choice,but a third and a fourth aren't likely to get it done.Sorry Cleveland fans.Tampa will offer a second an maybe BB makes the trade.
I think Geno Smith is a better QB, but Mallett isn't far behind. He's easily the #2 QB in this draft. However, I don't think that means a team would trade a top 10 pick for him and that's where almost all the QB needy teams are.
The two teams who would most likely trade for Mallett are the Bucs and Browns. I think we can all agree to that. If a trade were to happen I could see these types of trades in the works:
Best this year - #13 for #29 and Mallett
Most likely - #43 for Mallett
Could happen - #73 and conditional 2nd rounder that can turn into a 2014 1st for Mallett
Best this year - Phil Taylor, #68, and 4th for Mallett, #91, and 7th
Most likely - #68 and conditional 3rd that could turn into a 2nd next year for Mallett
Could happen - #6 for #29, Mallett, and conditional mid round pick next year
I would take any of the above of course moving up and grabbing one of the top DTs in the draft or Milliner would be a dream.
