Highlights[edit]

Michael Young - Generated a 3 year career with the Arizona Cardinals as a top backup linebacker, Young was considered athletically challenged and under productive in college…

Christian Morton - Created opportunities with (8) NFL organizations (Patriots - 2004, Browns - 2004, Saints - 2004, Falcons - 2004 & 2005, Redskins - 2005 & 2006, Panthers - 2006 & 2007, Broncos - 2008, Titans - 2009). Morton’s career lasted longer than higher draft selections at the same position: Jeremy Lesueur (85th), Derrick Strait (76th), Will Poole (102nd), Michael Waddell (124th), Bruce Thornton (121st), Chris Thompson (150th), Jeff Shoate (152nd), Vontae Duff (170th), Greg Brooks (183rd), Dexter Wynn (192nd), Nathan Jones (205th), Alphonso Marshall (215th).

Antonio Cromartie - Taken as a top pick for the San Diego Chargers 19th selection in the 2006 NFL draft: after one college start in his career, a major knee injury, and zero football played in 2005! Cromartie received a richer contract (5 year - $13.5 million with $7.5 million guaranteed) than 18th selection Bobby Carpenter (5 year - $10.8 million with $7.7 million guaranteed) and 15th selection Tye Hill (5 year - $12.6 million with $7.21 million guaranteed).

Brandon Williams - After completing his career at the University of Wisconsin as the all-time leader in receptions, the smallish/slow Williams still maintained a solid 5th round grade! Fletcher networked hard and aggressive with NFL personnel and took the politics head on, to sell his client as a valued top 100 prospect! Williams received a richer contract (4 year - $2.285 million with a signing bonus of $675,000 = 571.250 average per year and an 8% increase over the 2005 84th selection) than 83rd selection Anthony Smith (3 year - $1.564 million with a signing bonus of $521,500), 79th selection Jerious Norwood (4 year - $1.8 million with a signing bonus of $720,000), and 77th selection Jon Alston (3 year - $1.374 million with a signing bonus of $550,000).

Leigh Bodden - The Patriots and Bodden were unable to reach an agreement on a contract extension prior to the start of free agency in March 2010. After visiting with the Houston Texans on March 8, 2010, Bodden was reported to have signed a deal with the Patriots the very next day. The following day, details of the contract were released: the total deal was $22 million over 4 years, with $10 million guaranteed. The contract was front-loaded, with nearly two-thirds ($14 million) of the net value coming in the first two years. Bodden's free agency was handled by agents Alvin Keels and Jason Fletcher II.
