  • Catapano has visited the VMAC :th2thumbs:

    This from Gil Brandt:

    "Catapano should be drafted relatively high, somewhere around the fourth or fifth rounds. His stiffest competition for being the first Ivy Leaguer selected in late April could come from Harvard fullback Kyle Juszczyk or Cornell receiver Luke Tasker (son of Buffalo Bills legend Steve Tasker).

    The last time a player from Princeton was selected in the draft was in 2001, when the Seattle Seahawks took offensive tackle Dennis Norman in the seventh round. Princeton’s most notable alum in the NFL is Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett, who also was a quarterback for the team from 1993 to 1999."

    http://blogs.nfl.com/2013/03/27/mike-catapano-of-princeton-might-be-first-ivy-leaguer-drafted/

    Then there's NFP:

    "1. Mike Catapano, DE, Princeton (6033, 270 and 4.85): After dominating the Ivy League, Catapano came to Tampa needing to prove he could be as productive against better competition and he definitely did that. Quick off the ball, Catapano displayed strong and aggressive use of hands to jolt and defeat pass blocks with surprising ease. Able to consistently beat the offensive tackle around the corner and inside allowed him to regularly pressure the quarterback in every drill. Not only productive rushing the passer, his ability to defeat run blocks allowed him to make plays against the run at him and away. His strong week of practice has put Catapano in position to be a third round pick if he continues to perform well the rest of the spring."
