Pats top pick brings versatility

Posted by Chris Brown on November 4, 2008 – 2:37 pm

New England top pick Jerod Mayo has brought some much needed youth to the Patriots linebacking corps.

Sure Mike Vrabel has been versatile playing on the inside and outside as well as a tight end type option on offense for the Pats over the years, but Mayo has the kind of athleticism that makes him a good matchup on linebackers, certainly much better than 35-year old Tedy Bruschi.

Last Sunday night he was assigned to cover Dallas Clark, one of the more athletic receiving tight ends.

Mayo has also been very productive and is the team’s leading tackler.
