    #12 Jersey

    Mike Reiss Posted some comments from Chung's press conference. I love the first comment that Mike posted. There is a pic of the Jersey presentation in Mike's blog too.

    He will fit right in. :D

    Good to see that they decided not to have all the second rounders there. The last time they had multiple players at the jersey presentation, they didn't work out so well. Chad Jackson ended up being a bust and Maroney has been disapointing (although not nearly as bad as many make him out to be on this board).

    I like the Chung pick. The guy seems to be everything the Pats look for in a player. Hopefully he becomes Rodney 2.0.

    No Jersey Selected

    I'm hoping that he becomes Patrick Chung 1.0 and makes all of us forget about Rodney (although the latter is not likely at all).

    I agree. I just saw his press conference at Patriots.com. He seemed like a smart, humble kid.
    He and Butler are roommates.

    Disable Jersey

    I can't wait to see Chung & Butler at training camp. Looks like the Pats scouted a couple guys to whom the study of film and the game is important.

    Yeah, I liked him a lot. On a scale of Meriweather who was nice enough but seemed . . . young . . . to Mayo who almost sounded like a coach, Chung is well towards the Mayo side for me. Maybe 80% to that side - not as impressive verbally as Mayo was but still a very, very impressive young man.

    He sounds like a workout and filmroom junkie. That work ethic of his will help him a lot in transitioning to the next level. Chung will need to get bigger, stronger, and SMARTER to succeed in the NFL. From the sound of it, he's on the right path. We'll find out more about him soon at the rookie minicamp.

    I've loved this pick since I got home on draft day and saw the bottom ticker that we got him. Kid is going to be a beast.

    From what I've gathered, he might not be the best guy in coveage, but what he does well is hit - and hit HARD.

    Sounds a lot like Rodney to me. I have to assume that's exactly why they went for him.

    I'm actually hoping he is Rodney 2.5. You know the second coming of Rodney with a bunch of service pack upgrades.

    I'm looking forward to watching him progress. I think we've seen the last few years several defensive players start slow and finish extremely strong. Meriweather his rookie year was playing a lot better at the end than the beginning. Wheatley and Wilhite were starting to come on before injuries. Mayo (though he was pretty good to begin with) was one of our best defensive players by year's end.

    If Chung and Butler can make strides like those examples, this defense is going to be solid by the end of the year.

    That's the caliber of thought that BB loves- selfless, team first player focusing on where he can best help the team.

    Rodney was said not to have great coverage skills as well, right?
