With the 62nd pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Patriots have selected Brandon Spikes, inside linebacker from Florida.
Spikes should play SILB, or the “Mike”, for the Patriots. This will potentially allow Jerod Mayo to move to the “Will” position. Spikes isn’t the fastest linebacker (5.0 40 yard dash) but he has great instincts and tackling skills. Spikes was quoted in his media conference call saying, “Bill Belichick knows pretty much everything about me.”
