Barring major injuries, who do you think will have a better NFL career? 1. Jerod Mayo vs. Brandon Spikes 2. Pat Chung vs. Brandon Meriweather 3. Aaron Hernandez vs. Rob Gronkowski ___________________________________ my opinion.. 1. Spikes. He's more of a play maker. Mayo has shown he doesnt make INTs, Sacks, or force fumbles. Spikes has great instincts, better size for the 3-4, and has a knack for making INT's. Spikes is also much more of a leader, which IMO is exactly what the team needs on our pathetic defense. Someone to step up and get in everyones face when the chips are down. You might not see it yet because he's still earning his wings so to speak, but he will undoubtedly emerge as a vocal leader on the field and in the locker room. He has that personality. Mayo is obviously faster, but he lacks the fire to ignite a defense that most great ILB's have. 2. Chung. All around better player. Tackling machine, better personality for the Pats, reminds me somewhat of Laron Landry. Meriweather is already disappearing and getting benched and its only his 4th year in the league. Not a good sign. I think Meriweather can turn it around, but I pick Chung because I think he has the potential to be the best player on our entire defense. 3. Hernandez. They both look like good players so far, but Gronk's a stronger blocker. Unfortunately, our team doesnt run that often so one of the positives Gronk has over Hernandez wont be fully utilized. I see Hernandez being a Wes Welker-type pass catching machine in our system. His run after the catch ability is amazing for someone his size. One of the analyst on NFL Network said he reminds them of Shannan Sharpe today. I think Gronk will be a big redzone target, but Hernandez will be the star and could maybe even go over 1,000+ yards in his Rookie year.
