    Here’s the transcript of the recently completed Q&A with Patriots’ first-round pick Jerod Mayo at Gillette Stadium:On the most surprising thing about the process…Just being able to come into a winning situation. I never thought I’d be on a team that lost only one game last year. I’m excited to learn from some of the [...]

    So, is Mayo excited and overwhelmed?

    The more and more articles/interviews w this kid I read in the past week, the more I'm happy we spent #10 on him. To me, in hindsight it seems like a no-brainer we'd have his kid higher on the board than Gholston or Rivers. He's smart, he's humble, he's got the work ethic, and we know he has the physical ability and speed. Seems like a perfect fit. :rocker:

    That Globe article is AMAZING. Nice piece by Chris Gasper.

    It's almost like Jerod Mayo was custom made to be a Patriot. Grandfather and military parents, choir boy, loyal to his HS and coaches, graduated EARLY with a degree in college, along with the monster talent and statistics.

    I love how during the NFL draft he was out raking leaves with his mom.

    I root for all Patriots, of course, but I REALLY like this guy. I liked Meriweather and I still do but at his press conference he seemed young. Mayo doesn't, even though he came out a year early (already having his degree) he seems super mature and a man not a boy just getting out of college. Jerod will be a favorite of mine and many others very soon, I think.

    What about those knee injuries though? Thats something that worried me a little when the Pats drafted him. I would hate to for him to become our best LB but always be sidelined because of injury. What do you guys think?

    I'm sure he will play an impressive part on special teams next year.

    I like him. Seems like a good fit, based on the little I've read.

    2006: AFC Championship loss
    2007: SB loss
    2008: No stopping the Pats!

    I was impressed with some of what I read there, and his family actually sounds a lot like mine, from the grandfather down.

    Another thing that impressed me was his musical taste. :D

    Type A , look you in the eye guy, very sharp, thinks on his feet. This is a player who's going to spot trends, read keys, communicate, diagnose and impact. If he stays healthy the sky is the limit. We could be looking at the face of our D for the next 10 years, and it's a face we can be proud of. Mayo has the bearing of a military man, you can see how much he was influenced in his mannerisms by his grandfather and stepdad. Suddenly, this defense has become strong and young up the middle: Wilfork, Mayo, Meriweather (assuming he works on his hands). That is a powerful spine for the D.

    While he's not young, I'd put AD in that "spine", he had a really underrated season last year, IMO, and will be the key component to the LB corps as long as he's here. His ability to play inside or outside at a high level - and not have a clear preference for one rather than the other like Vrabel for instance - is a big factor.

    I think, at least partially, that by Spine he meant the middle of our D, and AD was most effective at OLB last year - if he ends up moving back to SILB though i'd probably count him as a part of it.
