Hilarious draft reports from 2001

just want to lighten the mood a little before kickoff tomorrow with something i found while surfing the internet

22. Panthers

Best pick: QB Chris Weinke. This is exactly where TSN had Weinke slotted to go (44). It's a pick with great value for the Panthers. With his maturity, it's possible Weinke might start some as a rookie.

Worst pick: WR Steve Smith. He isn't ready to contribute at receiver, and it's doubtful he will wrestle the kickoff-return chores from Michael Bates. The Panthers spent a third-round pick on a punt returner.

Bottom line: Linebacker Dan Morgan gives the Panthers two things they lacked a year ago -- speed and playmaking ability on defense. Aside from Morgan and Weinke, this was a mediocre draft. Grade: C+

29. Colts

Best pick: S Idrees Bashir. The Colts have been unhappy with their secondary situation the past couple of years. Bashir, who covers plenty of ground in the deep third, will be an upgrade.

Worst pick: WR Reggie Wayne. He's a solid player, but there really isn't much upside here. The Colts need someone to complement Marvin Harrison; Chad Johnson was that guy.

5. Redskins

Best pick: CB Fred Smoot. He was the top cover player on some draft boards, so the Redskins were shocked he was still available in Round 2. It's possible that Smoot will be relegated to a dime role as a rookie.

Worst pick: QB Sage Rosenfels. Marty Schottenheimer was hoping he would land Chris Weinke but settled for Rosenfels. Adding a young arm is good, but Jesse Palmer and Mike McMahon are better.

Bottom line: The team had plenty of needs to address, but taking receiver Rod Gardner in the first round was a good decision. Often compared to Cris Carter, Gardner should fit well with QB Jeff George. Grade: A-

Fred Smoot? Rod Gardener? Jeff George? Roflllllololollllltrololplollilolllllllllll

That was good for the soul right there.

It's truly unfortunate, that a player of his caliber is stuck on a treadmill team.

Kinda like Keith Brooking with the Falcons, eh? Good thing he got the hell out of there.

Although I hate the patroits this made me laugh..................

Worst pick: G Matt Light. He isn't a bad player, but the Patriots didn't need to trade up to get him. He will help fix some pass-protection problems on the interior, but was he worth wasting two picks?

I remember this was the first draft that I watched. I remember everyone getting excited over Warren and Lewis as the next Warren Sapp. It is awesome going back over ten years ago, and hearing names you haven't heard in a while.

Patriots

Best pick: OT Kenyatta Jones. The Patriots used their time on Saturday night wisely and moved up to get this underrated tackle with the opening pick on the second day.

Worst pick: G Matt Light. He isn't a bad player, but the Patriots didn't need to trade up to get him. He will help fix some pass-protection problems on the interior, but was he worth wasting two picks?

lol Jones did nothing in the NFL, I think he ended up in the arena league or something and Light a top end left tackle for many years , multiple pro bowls
