    What do you think of this pick?

    SILB? I think so.

    Only a two down ILB? Can beat Bruschi for the spot?

    There will be a two headed monster tandem of McKenzie/Guyton in one of the middle spots next to Mayo, depending on whether it's an obvious passing or running down.

    MLB for us. He is basically the same size as Mayo. Belichick gave him some high praises in his post draft interview saying he went to 3 different programs cus of family issues yet in each system he did very well. Meaning he picks up the defensive scheme pretty quickly, a PLUS in belichicks book. Not to mention he seems like a good person with no character concerns from all Ive read about him. WIN WIN

    I like this kid for a lot of reasons, caring for his sick mom, moving from school to school for that reason.. interesting to see how he does with consistent coaching and being in a consistent program on this level.

    Some fans quotes on Mckenzie I found yesterday

    "McKenzie has a lot of range...highly athletic player. Some games I watched him, I thought he was a 1st round pick. He can play WILL, SAM, or even MIKE. He kinda reminds me of Daryl Smith"

    "Yeah, but that's part of what makes him a better prospect than McRath, his versatility along the linebacker spots. He would be a good strongside guy, but he can really fit anywhere, which makes him attractive to more teams."

    "But I do like McKenzie because of his ability to play all the LB positions. I think he needs to work on playing more consistently, but he definitely has potential to be a very good LB"

    "But McKenzie is a very durable guy who's played multiple linebacker positions. He does a great job flowing to the ball and has pretty good range. He does have a tendency to bite hard on play action though"
