    I heard yesterday that Gronk reminded people of Jason Witten. So I was curious who our new draft picks remind people of....

    McCourty- Mel Blount
    Rob Gronkosky- Kellen Wislow
    Jermaine Cunningham- Lawrence Taylor
    Brandon Spikes- Dick Butckus/Mike Singletary
    Taylor Price- Jerry Rice
    Aaron Hernandez- Ozzie Newsome
    Zoltan Mesko- Ray Guy
    Ted Larsen- John Hannah
    Thomas Welch- Art Shell
    Brandon Deaderick- Joe Greene
    Kade Weston- Alan Page
    Zac Robinson- Tom Brady

    Thats just me, I think they have about the same talent. Just my opinion.

    You are very generous in your comparisons.

    Zac Robinson to Tom Brady? Brandon Spikes to Dick Butkus?

    Zac Robinson is more like a Jake Plummer

    Brandon Spikes is more like a problem along the lines of a young Ray Lewis.

    Yeah...the spikes to Butkus is...let's say...a stretch?!

    I was actually gonna post on Spikes before i read any of theses. SPikes reminds me of a younger bryan Cox. AND i'll be honest what put my over the edge was the eye gauge incident! It's not a bad thing...i'm not calling him a "dirty player" for life....it's just something that Cox would have done!

    I see Gronk as a much better run blocker than Whitten.

    McCourty plays a lot like Revis. He has that upside.

    Gronk is so smooth...I think of Todd Heap.

    Cunningham has Demarcus Ware type speed in the short shuttle, I think he has elite upside.

    Spikes is Bart Scott in terms of playing style, but Ray Lewis in terms of draft status; he slipped because of an overestimated flaw and I think he could be very good here.

    Price could make a Mike Wallace type impact right away, and I think he has a Santana Moss ceiling. Remember, Moss was once very good.

    Hernandez has a Dallas Clark ceiling because he's so good at catching the ball.

    Larsen is a center. He does center things. Olin Kreutz?

    Welch is a late bloomer. I'm thinking Mike Gandy, except a little better.

    Deaderick, Weston and Robinson...w/e they're seventh rounders. Weston reminds me a little of Jarvis though.
