NEW YORK CAP) -- The N'a- onal Football League's colle- ia(e markptplace is shut down ir another year, with 437 of le nation's most promising oung athletes neatly divided mong the 28 NFL clubs. Now, the teams must wonder :ho got the best oE the grab- ag, and will the new names -ok'as attractive, in September s they do in April? Generally only about halt of he draft class survive the rig- rs of t r a i n i n g camp and show p on NFL" rosters when the eason begins In the tall. There re, however, a few of thi5 ear's selections who should ave no problem in that area. The first two picks, for ex mple, were a pair of Alt- American defensive tackles ,eroy Salmon of Oklahoma, s'e- ecled by '--Tampa, and Steve au5 of Notre'Daine, picked y Seattle. Both are almost cor ain to be instant starters with fieir expansion teams. "It could be neat," said Selmon. considering the prospect a firsl-voar cam assembled of rookies, free agents and left-overs culled rom the expansion d r a f t 'There's a lot of work involved but that's what life is all about." Nichaus aho liked the idea 'I figured it would be best tc start out with a new team anc a new system," he said. Both rfew clubs expect their So. 1 picks to be major factors for their teams, C O R N K K S T O . N E Leioy will be ihe cornerstone of our defense for many years," predicted Tampa Coach John McKay. "By the end o he vpar I think Steve may be our best man up front," sail rick Patera, SeaUle'j coach AtiD'her pick almost cerUm o make his team before a ! a'i is kicked in anger this summer is A l a b a m a tjuarter back Richard Todd, who wa he New York Jets' first ronn choice, To!d will be groomorl i Sake over the Jets singal calling fob from aging Joe Namath it was N a m a t h , anothc Alabama product, who rccoin mended the youngster. TodcJ was the only q u a r t e r back chosen in the draft's firs round, There wa s, however, n i shortage of r u n n i n g backs. Most teams believe r u n n i n i lacks are the easiest prayers (turn up in the pros.

Bu! the class of rusher available in this draft was to TM! to pass up andi so I I run ners were grabhed In the Cir.= selections. Six of thorn wore among th rst 24 players chosen. New rleans took California's Chuck luncfe, San Diego chose Joe V a s h i n g t o n o f Oklahoma, like Pruitt, Bubba Bean of exas AfrM went to Atlanta, iclroil went for Lawrence raines oE Wyoming.

Except in ^n expansion -ilion like ~ Seattle, it :hoice to be assured of a starL- 'ng job. Usually they have* io earn their spots the hard way, n the lough two-a-day workouts that moat NFL teams favor during (he training camp dog days of July and August. Most of the quality players go n the first couple of rounds of the draft but occasionally a top uerformer slips through Ihc early net. There was, for example, Don Nottingham, who was the 442nd and f i n a l player chosen 1971. A year later. linebacker Stan White was the final player selected by Ba more. Both not only survived the various roster cuts but he- came top N'FL players. Can it happen again? We won't know for a while bill there arc 28 NFL clubs hoping. The last man in this year's d r a f t was Kelvin K i r k , a wide receiver from Dayton, chosen by the Super Bowl champions, the Pittsburgh Slcclcrs. He may have an edge in his bid for a berth with the club. Chuck N'oll, coach of t h e Steelers, also went to Dayton.
