Ryan Mallett's stock was soaring in the middle of the college football season.
Now, it's plummeting. There have been rumors surrounding Mallett about alleged use of illegal drugs. He was asked about it constantly throughout his shortened press conference.
The press conference ended abruptly, with Mallett being ushered off stage quicker than any of the other prospects.
I'm pretty sure that's not exactly the way he envisioned his first press conference going. But one thing is for sure, the timing of these rumors are absolutely crushing for his draft stock. If he doesn't clear his name, things are just going to fester and will never go away.
Here's the dynamite audio. I highly encourage you to listen to every single second of it.
