With a compensatory pick from losing Asante Samuel, the Pats finally took a linebacker, who played OLB in school, but will probably play inside in the NFL. South Florida's Tyrone McKenzie.
He's 6' 1" 243 lbs. He does seem to have the work ethic to play in the NFL. He once quit school to work 11pm to 7am to support his mother and sisters. Once again, it's doubtful he'll make a big impact in 2009, but he could give Bruschi some necessary plays off. He's also adds to the future potential of the position. Instead of hoping Gary Guyton works out, us Pats fans now can hope Guyton OR McKenzie work out.
