Chad Finn's best Patriots draft picks
12. Richard Seymour, DL, 2001, first round
Like McGinest, he was intelligent, versatile, and supremely talented, and his immediate outstanding play as a rookie meant almost as much to the defense as Tom Brady's ascent did to the offense. A five-time Pro Bowl pick and three-time All-Pro in his eight years with the Patriots, he's probably the most accomplished No. 6 overall pick in league history.
