FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The New England Patriots have drafted quarterback Ryan Mallett of Arkansas with the 10th pick of the third round.

The Patriots have no immediate need for Mallett with Tom Brady still at the top of his game. But Mallett — who transferred from Michigan, which, of course, is Brady’s alma mater — was considered one of the best pure passers in the draft and some had projected him as a first-round pick.

At 6-feet-7 and 253 pounds, he won’t have much trouble seeing over pass rushers. But he has little running ability. In his last two seasons at Arkansas, he threw for 62 touchdowns.
