    A look into the future,who do you see as the next big thing in New England?

    I see Brandon Spikes as a solid ILB for years and could be better than anticipated,he gets my vote.

    I choose Grankowski. Spikes is my second choice.

    Mesko is a wild choice and probably the 7th rounders are more worthy but there are players like Ray Guy who come along every once in a decade or two who could be special

    To me it's between both Gronkowski and Spikes. However, I'm giving the slight edge to Spikes. He looks like he'll become a leader on the defense, I just think he'll make a bigger impact on the team.

    Since theres no rule against rival fans voting I say Spikes. He strikes me as a game day type player not combine guy. He is a little bit of a dirtbag, SOB which you need to be a really good LB IMO. I think he has a career which he isnt a perrenial pro bowler or Superstar but a tier or two below that where he is good, underrated and does dirty work.

    MR.Hernandez will shock people, he might be a little short but he has Tom brady throwing him the ball, he will eat up lb's especially the 3-4 linebackers in the division

    I think Spikes has the biggest upside so I'll go with him but Gronkowski isn't too far behind either. I also think Spikes has a nice leadership skill which is hard to find.

    I was a major Spikes hater before yesterday. Now, I think that he is an ideal complement to Mayo in our system, so I like the pick.

    I voted Gronk though.

    I voted Spikes, but I believe Hernandez is gonna be a big time player for us.

    I believe that Mesko will become an interstellar star in NE; back up the whole bit with some serious performance. We'll see...

    Of course, high performers at his position (P) typically play for a long time...lots of value here; possibility of a long career.

    I see all three of the 2nd-rounders as lunch-bucket kinds of guys. Gronk's upside is combining the best aspects of Grahambo and Christian Fauria, which is pretty darned good. Spikes' upside is Tedy Bruschi with a longer prime. Cunningham's upside is Mike Vrabel without the TE moonlighting.

    I'm going to go with McCourty, however. His upside is Ty Law.

    I voted Spikes. For some reason Spikes and Mayo just sounds right. Hopefully it'll be McCourty though.

    I believe that Devin McCourty will help us a lot, specially in the ST. I hate when Brady always start around the 20's, besides i want to see a field goal block. Spikes will be a beast as well, and i hope that we use Gronk a lot, he is 6'6', Brady can't miss him.

    Very tough, but I'm going with my gut and saying Spikes.

    Tough choice for me as a Gator fan, and as I find out more about the ones I'm not that familiar with, the more I like. But in the end, I went with one of my Gator binkies and my hometown boy, Aaron Hernandez.
