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.)

Ryan Johnston and Mike Flynn talk about the Tom Brady/Deflategate joke Peyton Manning told during Comedy Central's Roast of Rob Lowe.
Tom Brady will have to leave the Patriots facility Saturday to begin his four-game suspension, but, according to Brian McCarthy of the NFL public relations office, he'll still be allowed to workout with his body guru/business partner Alex Guererro, despite the fact he's a team employee.
However, no football information may come through the Patriots for Guerrero to pass on to Brady.
Guerrero works with other players and travels with team.
