question about 2001 draft

Postby jeff14623ny » Wed Jan 19, 2005 10:09 am

Just wanted to know who people think we would have drafted with the number 5 overall pick had Reeves not traded up fot the number to grab Vick. I thought we would of drafted Justin Smith before the Vick trade, but obviously the Bengles took him before the 5th pick.

There was talk that Reeves really liked Kenyatta Walker, who fell to #14, and McKay picked him up for the Bucs.

At the time, I was "in love" with Leonard Davis (#2), Richard Seymour (#6), and Andre Carter (#7), although I do remember a lot of talk being mentioned about Smith. I recall a lot of Falcon fans wanting David Terrell or Koren Robinson at #5.

I honestly think that Walker or Seymour would have been our picks however if we had not traded up.

I also sometimes wonder about who people think we would have taken in 2000 with the pick we traded to Baltimore. The Ravens of course took Jamal Lewis. I've always felt that we would have taken Corey Simon (#6), but I think Burress (#8) and Urlacher (#9) would have been options as well.
