This was McCarthyâ€™s first draft as a head coach. He spent more time in draft meetings and in the draft room for the selection process than heâ€™d ever spent as an NFL assistant.
What stood out most to him was the way Thompson and top scouts John Dorsey, John Schneider and Reggie McKenzie handled the Packersâ€™ flurry of trades early in the second round. In just a few minutes, Thompson:
â€¢ Traded the Packersâ€™ second-rounder, No. 36 overall, to New England for two draft picks (Nos. 52 and 75).
â€¢ Traded receiver Javon Walker to Denver for the No. 37 pick.
â€¢ Immediately sent the No. 37 pick and a fifth-rounder (No. 139) to Atlanta for three picks (Nos. 47, 93 and 148).
