Collegiate Performance Helps Patriots, Ravens and Bears Draft NFL Hopefuls... April 2001
| The NFL Draft - April 20-21, 2001:
The appraisal process helps NFL's general managers and scouts select only the brightest and best of collegiate stars. Although, oftentimes, evaluations don't measure up, most teams still rely on performance reviews after consulting with former coaches, trainers - no damaged goods wanted - and then, try to acquire the behavior specifics of the draftees' from former teachers.
By John R. Balazs, administrator @footballhistorian.com
** The New England Patriots trying to stay as objective as possible balanced their picks of young hopefuls by selecting defensive tackle Richard Seymour of Georgia as their number 1 pick - and later grabbed Notre Dame's offensive tight end Jabari Holloway in the fourth round.
Seymour who can play either tackle or end, is a bruising, brash performer and was the leader of the Georgia Bulldogs' defensive line. With the sixth pick of the draft, the Chargers who felt they needed to bolster a porous defense, rate the young Seymour 'a can't miss future NFL star.'
New England was delighted that running back LaDainian Tomlinson was still available when their second pick came around. The Chargers said for a long time, - 'that they preferred Tomlinson over quarterback Michael Vick of Virginia Tech.'
** The Baltimore Ravens, picking 31st in the first round, selected as their No. 1 - offensive tight end Todd Heap from Arizona State. Heap was top's on everyone's list and the Ravens are banking on him to be the eventual successor to All-Pro Shannon Sharpe.
The Ravens grabbed Gary Baxter, a defensive back out of Baylor University, No. 2. Picked center Casey Rabach of Wisconsin No. 3.
And for their final pick (#231 overall), Baltimore chose Northwestern University's Dwayne Missouri, a hard playing, aggressive defensive end.
** The Chicago Bears needed to put points on the board after a disastrous 2000-2001 season. They picked as No 1 - wide receiver David Terrell of Michigan. Then, selected running back Anthony Thomas, a teammate of Terrell at Michigan.
John Capel who sat out last season so he could run the 200 meters in the US Olympic trials was the Bears 7th pick. Capel of Florida Univ. is the fastest man in the draft and will be used primary as a kick return specialist... Indeed, he did win the 200 meters in the trails.
The Bears also drafted Mike Grady, a guard from Notre Dame... picked Karon Riley, de, Minnesota Univ. ... and their No 5 choice was Bernard Robertson, center, Tulane.
