The Patriots have selected Patrick Chung, Safety, from Oregon. Chung is a big hitter in the mold of Rodney Harrison. Patrick will need a bit of polishing in his coverage, but should excel in the hybrid safety position to start with.
In a conference call earlier tonight Chung stated that the Patriots showed “lots of interest” during the draft process and that he felt like played like Bob Sanders. He stated that his best traits were tackling and leadership.
Having traded down twice, the Patriots finally found some value with the second pick of the second round.
