    Now that we've moved from potential Patriots to actual Patriots, it's time to stake a claim on rookie binkies (or is it time to let them claim you? :) ).

    Sorry I didn't have room to include all the rookies. :) :(

    Deadrick. one of the steals of the draft. In 2 years he is starting next to Vince and Warren.

    I almost chose Deaderick. I've heard him described as a "systems" DE for a 2-gap 3-4. I went with Cunningham because he needs more support than the fan favs, Gronk and Spikes. Jermaine coils up like a tiger ready to destroy its prey. I think he can play the same role as Burgess. Okay, I'm about to go home and watch a replay of OU V. UF championship game. See yaaah.

    Maybe we'll call him Deadterites in a few years in relation to putting RBs on the ground

    Biggest is Spikes at the moment, I hope he starts from day 1.

    Coming in at a close second is Gronk, who is going to be a fantastic RZ threat.

    I really hope spikes does well. I might need to replace my Troy Brown jersey sometime in the near future.

    #24 Jersey

    I hope you're right. Dude certainly has the size and the strength to be our DE of the future.

    As for me, just look at my signature. It'll be Gronk followed closely by Hernandez.

    Hernandez, Price and Gronk.


    Not in that order, I love them all equally. They're all my love children now.

    Brandon Spikes. This guy has an uncanny resemblence to Tedy Bruschi in terms of physical ability and leadership qualities. I forsee a great future ahead of him.

    I have a feeling that many of us have wanted Spikes for awhile now, a poor man's McClain we used to call him. We just didn't think it would happen. Now WE ARE PSYCHED!

    Spikes! I love this kid's toughness and think he's going to be a beast! Next I'll go with McCourty or Price.

    You gotta love a guy named Zoltan!! Though he wasn't my first choice for P.

    No love for McCourty? I'll take him. I've always been an advocate of a great secondary to make this defense tick anyway.

    Zoltan binky. I want to see the youtubing hungarian nazi bastard nail teams within the 5 yard line on multiple occasions, and you would think punting is something you can just step right into at the next level.

    Longshot/low impact binky: Kade Weston. Now since NT is taken, what I want is for him to rotate in a play or two when needed, and positively blow up a center or two. Plus a guard or two. At the same time. Workout warrior, really unpolished at position... but I'd want to keep the measurables around (strongest D-lineman in the draft, long arms, 315.) So I really want him to pick up the 2-gap NT responsibilities ridiculously quickly, so we have a "spare" at that absolutely key 3-4 position. I want him to be good enough to stick around as a backup until stepping up as a starter a years or four down the line.

    Pressure on the QB will make the secondaries job a whole lot easier. But i'm rooting for all our guys there are things to like about all of them.

    Spikes and mayo could patrol our defense for the next decade so that's exciting.

    Potentially productive TE.... CHECK

    A 4 down corner... CHECK.

    Ultra Zaney punter.... CHECK, only think that could make it better was if he was an Irishman, with gambling and drinking issues.

    The underdog i'm rooting for is Bryan Anderson, interesting tools, just looking for him to become possible a #2 receiver. Will be interesting to see how he pans out.

    My late rounds binky is Larson. Great depth at C/G. I have a feeling he will play himself into #2 on the depth chart immediately and if Koppen or Neal go down (likely) he will play significantly.

    I expect McCourty, Gronk, Cunningham, Spikes, Hernandez and Mesko to do well with at least 3 or 4 starters out of that group. So my binkies and training wheels to achieve more than is expected and making solid appearances during the season and beyond go to Taylor Price and Ted Larson.

    I'm pretty excited about Spikes.

    The gf is way into Zoltan, though, after she saw that pic of him flexing... lol.

    How can anybody pass on a guy named Zoltan? He had his own rooting section at Michigan, was named a team captian, speaks 4 languages, has a tee shirt for his candidacy for Emperor of Space.

    Besides, I am pretty sure he makes the team and will see action every game. Oh yeah, he averaged over 44 yards per kick his senior year.
