With Junior Seau being a flake, the Patriots were forced to address their possible hole at inside linebacker. Even if Seau returns, having a young and versatile playmaking linebacker will be a huge plus.

The Pats were expected to take a cornerback with this pick, but frankly, we needed some help at inside linebacker. Seau, even if he comes back, is ancient, and nowhere near the playmaker he used to be. Bruschi is still solid, but has aged into more of a Ted Johnson type of solid as opposed to making the game winning tackle or sack or INT solid he was in '03 and '04.

There are also plenty of CBs out there. And I'd rather the Pats get a pair of solid CBs in the 2nd and 3rd rounds as opposed to just one stud CB in the 1st. We don't need one more defensive back, we need several. We need depth at that position.

    A flake??? You're an idiot... Seau maybe old, but he still made plays and is better than most NFL linebackers...

  2. Junior Seau is the best ever to play linebacker in the NFL... No one more intense and can still play better than most of these guys... He is a true legend of the game... There will never be another like him... Just like there will never be another Barry Sanders...
