One organization that is receiving relatively high marks for their draft is the New England Patriots. That is good news for NC State fans as the moves around the draft elevated the Patriots onto the list of NFL teams that are favorites for us to follow.
Yesterday, the Pats got a bit of a steal when they picked up NC State’s Ted Larsen in the 6th round; and, before the draft the Pats signed NC State legend, Torry Holt to one year, $1.7 million contract. Thank goodness for Torry’s assault on the career receiving record books that he was able to get out of Jacksonville where there is nobody to throw him balls.
Listed at 6-feet, 200 pounds, Holt spent last season with the Jaguars, with 51 receptions for 722 yards (14.2 yards per catch). During the first 10 seasons of his career, all in St. Louis, Holt averaged 87 catches per season; in the Super Bowl XXXVI loss to the Patriots, he recorded five grabs.
