Dolphins tried to get up to draft Mallett

The Dolphins coveted Ryan Mallett, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald. "We were willing to take him, we just couldnt get our hands on him, a Dolphins source told Salguero."We tried, but we couldnt do it. Hes going to be a good quarterback."The Patriots took Mallett with the 74th overall pick. Miami had made a deal earlier in the round to get running back Daniel Thomas at No. 62. They gave up their 79th overall pick, a fifth and a seventh to get up there. (Thanks to my corporate stepbrother Gregg Rosenthal for unearthing.)
