    Chung is my #1 Safety, while others prefer Delmas. This article reveals several reasons why I think he fits the Pats profile. Here's a couple of excerpts:

    I still prefer Moore and we'll get him mid-late second

    No secret Chung has been my "binky" for us at #47 or #58 for a long time.
    The SS that knocks people into different time zones! :cool:

    Versatility? Check.

    Leadership? Check.

    Sure Tackler? Check.

    Ability to cover receivers and tight ends? Check.

    Ability to blitz? Check.

    Ability to deliver big hits? Check.

    Special Teams? Check.

    Change of Direction Ability? Check.

    Smarts/Instincts? Check.

    I'm not sure what's not to love. Oh... and he's a 21-year old fifth-year senior. He started at Oregon when he was 16. I'd even give him serious consideration at #34.

    Rodney Harrisons replacement :) Smart, hard-hitter but more importantly, a leader.

    I think with the good coverage skills displayed by Meriweather in his second season, we'd be far better off with a guy who can fly up to the line and hit. That looks like Louis Delmas for me, or maybe William Moore. I definitely think Delmas is a better option.

    Nice info, thanks. Though was that one analysis done by his mother? Even the negatives seem positive (or at least not all that negative)!

    I personally agree, plus I think Delmas is better in coverage. Chung is my #4 option after Delmas, Sean Smith and William Moore, but it's quite close between them. I like Chung. I always have, and I had him on my shortlist for the Pats last fall. There's nothing to dislike about him. I just like Delmas better. But I wouldn't be at all unhappy with Chung if the others are off the board.

    I like Chung, but no earlier than 58. I really think he could be something special with the Pats. He is my contigency plan in case we don't get Delmas, Smith or Moore. The reason I like Chung at 58 is because I think he will still be there when we pick. Maybe a small trade up. If Belichick decides to go later with Safety I'm hoping it will be him.

    My concern is that Delmas may not have the smarts to make the calls back there. To me Chung is Rodney redux, and thus would be my first choice. Moore would be my preference over Smith (who is reported to have great athletiicism but poor technique).

    You have to love the fact that Chung has'nt been playing oranized football that long, he might have great upside.
