Tom Brady's New Backup 

How loaded was USC last year? Their backup QB was taken in the 7th round of Sunday's NFL draft. Yup, The New England Patriots selected Matt Cassel with the 230th pick in the draft (hey, with their track record, it's hard to argue). This reminded me of the Minnesota Vikings selecting Brad Johnson in the 9th round of the 1992 draft, even though he was an injury-riddled backup at Florida State.

Cassel's 2004 line:

14 passes, 10 completions, 97 yards, 1 INT

Do the Patriots want to show that it wasn't a fluke? Brady, after all, was a 6th rounder in 2000, and didn't exactly light up scoreboards at Michigan. What could a 7th rounder who didn't start a single game in college do? I just hope that Brady's looking over his shoulder during minicamp.
