New England Crowder? Patriots One Team Interested In Former Lion

He could have the opportunity to go from a Lion and a Longhorn to a Patriot.

The New England Patriots are just one of seven teams to show interest in John Tyler graduate, Tim Crowder.

The defensive end visited with Miami, St. Louis, the New York Jets, Atlanta, Tampa Bay and Indianapolis.

Tim is projected to be a first or second round pick. He will be at home in Tyler Saturday, awaiting word from one of the NFL teams.

KLTV spoke to Tim by phone in Austin Friday evening, and asked what is bigger: winning the college championship or being drafted?

"The reason I would say the draft is because it's setting your life up," Tim said. "This is how you are going to support your family, your kids, just everything around it. You are setting your own life up with it. But as a team accomplishment, there is nothing to compare to the national championship."
