    click on the lick above . Then click on "5/6 look back at 2001 witha retro mock draft".

    I think that some may find this very interesting. I did.

    So did i.

    Especially the conclusion that 2nd-round picks produced about as much value as first-rounders.
    Trade down, whenever the opportunity presents itself!

    Seymour would have been taken #1, maybe #2 after Tomlinson. No way do two WRs get taken before the DLineman. DLineman are the most valued defensive players in the NFL nowadays and Seymour is arguably the best. You may be able to make an argument for Brees over Seymour.

    And Vick at #1? Is this guy on crack?

    I assumed that he meant, in terms of the health of the franchise -
    ticket sales, paraphernalia sales, and the like.
    Ownership has ridden that running-back-under-center ... pretty hard, and pretty far.

    Either way. Not worth the #1 pick.

    In one respect, I found it interesting that other than Atlanta he had the Patriots making the right pick at #6.

    On the other hand, I can't see how he could have Seymour rated any lower than #2 after what Seymour has done in the NFL. I don't see how he could have kept Michael Vick as #1. Vick probably should have been in the top 10 but not #1.

    The big tall WR's bite the dust.

    Only Freddie Mitchell fails to represent.

    Seymour should be #1. He was the best, most successful pick in that draft. Vick shouldn't even be in the first round, he sucks as a QB. You can say that Atlanta has made a lot of money marketing him, but you know what really makes money? A team that wins Superbowls.

    According to that Mock draft, it's obvious that the Patriots Sey mour light. Sorry, I know that was bad, but I couldn't help it! :D

    Other Huddle observations...

    I was more taken by theiir draft wrapup and evaluation on the Huddle report.

    "Patriots – What can I say these guys just can’t pass on a good TE! They can’t help themselves. They got the RB they needed and a much needed big WR with speed to boot. They have a winning program and a coach that demands effort from all of his players and a new kicker that has a good leg. The Mincey kid is going to love this system and LeKevin is very underrated. It is always hard on paper to give this team a good grade because they draft for a system and talent is not their main priority. They draft brains. They draft players who understand situational football. They draft team players first and then talent. They do a good job every year and the players they do take a chance on - they give them plenty of time too developed. "

    That certainly describes to a "T" what the Patriots, under BB/SP, do in the draft...
