_______________________________________________

24 Arkansas QB Ryan Mallett — Boom-or-bust prospect, but far more talent than Henne.

47 Illinois RB Mikel Leshoure — Arguably more upside than Ingram, and way better value.

72 Georgia OG Clint Boling — An athletic technician ready to play after 49 career starts.

79 Arkansas TE D.J. Williams — Highly productive college player, but won’t block anyone.

146 Citadel CB Cortez Allen — Questionable pick; early for Allen at already strong position.

163 Portland State TE Julius Thomas — Might turn out to be a better pro than Williams.

218 Miami RB Damien Berry — Good idea to draft two players at roster’s thinnest spot.

235 Tennessee State S Eugene Clifford — Long-term projection is probably special teams.

The Fins were able to come away with more picks in a trade down, but the success of this draft will depend heavily on Mallett.  While the grader was impressed with the draft overall, he is not high on the Razorbacks’ all-time passing leader.  Still, Leshoure and Boling project as immediate starters at need positions, and the former in particular has a sky-high ceiling as a powerful, yards-after-contact rusher with an exceptionally powerful build.  Miami’s 2011 draft certainly upgraded the talent level on G.M. Jeff Ireland’s roster.  But Ireland won’t have a job by 2013 if Mallett fails.

Grade: B-
