The Patriots will host Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett this week as one of their final on-site visits as part of the pre-draft process, according to ESPN. Mallett is one of the most polarizing signal-callers available in this year’s draft ‘ he has one of the strongest arms out there, having thrown for almost 4,000 yards in his senior season with the Razorbacks. However, Mallett is hounded by character questions, including drug rumors that have reportedly caused his draft stock to fall. The 6-foot-7, 253-pound Mallett had 3,869 yards and 32 touchdowns as a senior at Arkansas.
