Post-Draft Outlook:
A closer look at the Patriots' picks: 2/34 -- Patrick Chung, SS, 5-11, 212, Oregon...The Patriots needed to prepare for the inevitable departure of Rodney Harrison, whether it's this year or next, so drafting Chung makes sense. They still have Brandon Meriweather and James Sanders in the fold, but adding Chung solidifies the sub packages and gives the team flexibility to mix and match based on opponent. They need someone to replace Harrison's tenacity at the line of scrimmage in addition to a natural ballhawk and Chung might be that player. - by The Sports Xchange

 Overview

  
One of the strongest defensive backs in college football, the Kingston, Jamaica native has been a mainstay and one of the few bright spots on Oregon's defensive unit. He holds the distinction of starting more games than any defensive player in school history, having never come off the bench during his 51-game career.

Chung evolved into an exceptional leader by mastering the mental aspects of the game and grasping an understanding of the team's defensive objectives. He closed out his career ranking fourth in school annals with 384 tackles and placed sixth on the Ducks' record charts with 26 pass deflections.

Considered to be the team's best defensive back since the Alex Molden era (1992-95), Chung has also set several impressive marks in the training room. He posted the program's second-best bench press (345 pounds) in the 2008 winter testing, in addition to producing the Ducks' fifth-best power clean lift (324 lbs.) of all time among players in the secondary.

Chung's family came to the United States during his childhood, settling in California, where he went on to star at Rancho Cucamonga High School. The two-time first-team All-Baseline League pick was rated among top 90 prospects in California by Super Prep magazine after helping lead the Cougars to a 7-4 record his senior year.

He excelled at wide receiver and free safety in 2003, finishing as his team's second-leading tackler, recording 74 tackles while coming up with nine receptions for 209 yards and two touchdowns. He posted eight or more tackles five times, including a season-high 12 vs. Alta Loma High during his final campaign. He also contributed two interceptions, forced two fumbles and recovered two others.

Chung enrolled at Oregon in 2004, learning the system while competing on the scout team. On that squad, he was named Defensive Player of the Week for his performances in practice before the Oklahoma, UCLA and Arizona contests.

In 2005, the youngster garnered considerable national attention. He was named Pac-10 Conference Defensive Freshman of the Year by The Sporting News, as the magazine also chose him for their Freshman All-American squad. He received the Len Casanova Award as the team's best newcomer and was an All-Pac 10 Conference honorable mention.

That year, Chung began his string of 51 consecutive starts, taking over at the Rover position. He ranked second on the team with 91 tackles (5 solos), as he caused a fumble and deflected five passes. He also had two interceptions and saw brief action as a kickoff returner. First stepping onto the collegiate practice field at the age of 16, he was difficult to pull off the field due to his insistence of playing on the majority of special teams in addition to the line of scrimmage.

With Chung firmly entrenched at Rover, the Ducks ranked 20th in the nation in pass defense for 2006. He was again named All-Pac 10 Conference honorable mention, as he finished third on the team with 84 tackles (49 solos) that included 3.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage and two sacks. He picked off four passes and batted down five other tosses. He also handled the brunt of the punt return duties, averaging 12.1 yards on 14 attempts that included one touchdown.

As a junior, Chung was named second-team All-American and first-team All-Pac 10 Conference. He received the Gordon E. Wilson Award, given to the team's top special teams player. He averaged 22.3 yards on nine kickoff returns while leading the Ducks with a career-high 117 tackles (71 solos), adding 7.5 stops for loss. He broke up nine passes and was credited with a pair of interceptions.

Chung garnered third-team All-American accolades in addition to making the All-Pac 10 Conference first-team for the second consecutive year in 2008. Along with offensive lineman Max Unger, the pair set the school record with 51 consecutive starting assignments. He had 92 tackles (58 solos) in 13 games, coming up with two sacks among his 6.5 stops for loss. He caused and recovered a fumble, batted down seven passes and returned his only interception 31 yards for a touchdown.



 Analysis

  
Positives: Well-built, versatile athlete who has seen time at cornerback and as a returner. ... Flashes explosive hitting ability. ... Reads the action quickly and is seemingly always around the ball. ... Good lateral quickness, acceleration and smooth change-of-direction agility while in zone coverage. ... Attacks underneath routes and rarely allows the receiver to cross with the ball unscathed. ... Closes quickly on the ballcarrier. ... Receivers are cognizant of him when going over the middle. ... Quick enough to hang with receivers for a few seconds in the deep half. ... Among the more reliable open-field tacklers in the country and should be an excellent last line of defense at the NFL level. ... Accomplished blitzer. ... Few have Chung's ability to explode into ballcarriers while wrapping their arms securely. ... Whether deep in coverage or attacking the line of scrimmage, he limits the yards gained at the point he meets the ballcarrier. ... Consistently swarms to the ball. ... Durable, consistent performer. ... Instinctive defender. ... Should be a leader on defense and special teams.

Negatives: Questionable deep speed and is a bit shorter than scouts prefer because of their coverage duties against tight ends. ... Physical player who can get a bit grabby while in coverage, leading to some holding calls. ... Attacks the line or underneath routes too quickly, leaving room for the deep ball behind him. ... At his best facing the quarterback and running downhill toward the ball.

Compares To: MIKE BROWN, ex-Chicago -- Like Brown, Chung lacks the size of a prototype strong safety, but he makes plays vs. action in front of him. His timed speed does not really translate to the field, making him a bit of a liability covering the deep third of the field. He is a nice fit for a Cover-2 scheme, as he has the physical ability to step up in the box and make crunching tackles playing downhill. He has very good ball skills and receivers are always hesitant to come into his area due to his explosive tackling ability.



 Scouting Report

  
GENERAL REPORT
GRADE: 6.58

Body Structure: Chung has an evenly proportioned frame with room to add at least another 10 pounds of bulk. He has decent upper-body muscle tone, but could use more shoulder development. He has lean muscle mass in the lower body, tight waist and hips.

Athletic Ability: Chung is a versatile athlete with a developing frame. He demonstrates very good playing strength and has the foot quickness and body control to step inside the box and make plays in run support. He might struggle a bit to handle tight ends, as he is a bit shorter than ideal at strong safety, but he compensates with his leaping ability and timing. He has good functional quickness and builds to top speed, showing the acceleration to stay with tight ends and backs working the short and intermediate areas. He lacks a sudden burst coming out of his backpedal, but uses his hands effectively to mirror the receiver and takes good angles to shorten the field. He compensates for a lack of blazing timed speed with good range. He has the agility to slip past and avoid blocks in pursuit, showing the hip flexibility needed to generate a quick twitch working in the short area. He maintains balance in transition, but needs to redirect quicker to close on the ball in backside pursuit. GRADE: 6.7

Football Sense: Chung has excellent vision and field awareness. He picks up blocking schemes quickly and does a very good job of making calls in the secondary. He is like a coach on the field, knowing everyone's assignments and getting his teammates lined up properly. He has excellent reaction skills and knows how to time his leaps to get to the thrown pass at its highest point. He makes good body adjustments on the move and is quick to identify the run when working inside the box. He does well in the classroom and his field smarts and instincts allow him to shorten the field by taking proper angles to the ball. Rarely bites on play-action or misdirection and is rarely caught out of position. He has no problem retaining plays and had an impressive Wonderlic test score. GRADE: 7.1

Character: One of the most respected players in the program. He is mature, regarded as a team leader and mentor for the younger players. A self-starter who kept the team in line despite a poor overall season by the secondary in 2008. GRADE: 6.3

Competitiveness: Chung is an aggressive tackler with little regard for his body. He will not hesitate to mix it up in the trenches and plays on all special teams. He gives great effort getting downfield to break up the wedge and is not timid, relishing the contact when making plays vs. the run. Keeps the action in front of him and comes up quick to fill rush lanes. He is a highly productive player and seems to be in position to make the play regularly. Some would like to see him play with a little less abandon, whereas others like that he plays with a relentless motor. GRADE: 6.3

Work Habits: Chung is a diligent worker on the practice field and in the weight room, evident by his impressive bench press performance at the NFL Combine. He is a team-first player who takes well to hard coaching. He puts in the extra hours in the film room studying the opponent and is not the type that needs to be pushed in the training room. He has a solid blue-collar work ethic and is a leader by example. He needs to add more bulk to his upper body, as he only has lean muscle tone. Will do everything the coaches ask and has been a respected team leader and starter throughout his career. GRADE: 6.5

ATHLETIC REPORT
GRADE: 6.78

Key and Diagnostic Skills: Chung has very good ball skills, showing great timing and awareness making plays downhill. He is quick to get his hands up for the pass breakup and is very physical attacking receivers. Opponents need to account for him at all times on the field. He will get a bit overaggressive at times, leading to costly penalties, but he has very good ability to sniff out the play and attack the ball. He is not the type that will be fooled by play action and shows urgency stepping into the box to fill the rush lanes. He reacts to the ball in the air and can track the ball in flight. He sees the field well and is especially effective at providing run force. GRADE: 7.3

Man Coverage Ability: Chung is best when playing the ball. He won't get turned or let the cushion break down, but does not have the timed speed to match up with receivers on deep routes. While he knows how to maintain relationship with tight ends and slot backs in the short and intermediate area, he needs to improve his turning ability coming out of his backpedal. He looks tight when attempting to redirect, but shows good acceleration when making plays in front of him. He has the hand usage and technique to press, which helps him stall the receiver's route progression. His lack of blazing speed makes it hard for him to plant and burst, but he compensates by taking good angles to shorten the field. Can stay tight on the hip of a slot receiver but could show better hip flexibility and must improve his timed speed to be effective covering on deep routes. He has good feet to adjust on the move, but appears best when playing the zone rather than in isolated situations. GRADE: 6.0

Zone Coverage Ability: This is one of his better assets. Chung has solid awareness playing zone coverage. Sees plays develop quickly and has the innate feel for being in the right position. He has good route-recognition ability and is rarely caught out of position. He looks comfortable attacking the ball and has the ability to adjust and make plays on the move. He has an excellent feel for routes and does a good job when he is the deepest player on the field. He has a good feel for handling the switch-off and takes good angles to shorten the field in his zone assignments. GRADE: 7.5

Backpedal Skills: Chung shows good feet and fluidity in his backpedal, when he does not stay in it for too long. He gets good depth, despite a bit of hip stiffness, showing the body control to plant and drive on plays in front or to the side of him, but must be quicker flipping his hips to go and get back in the action when a receiver gets by him. He shows ease-of-movement in his backpedal, but will take some false steps when he has to redirect. He is not as explosive coming out of his breaks as most teams prefer, but he is fluid enough to take the short route to the receiver in the short area. He stays in control in his backpedal and can compensate for a lack of blazing quickness with improved hip turn. GRADE: 6.2

Ball Reaction Skills: Chung gets an excellent jump on the ball. He has natural hands for the interception and competes for the jump ball. He is quick to anticipate the quarterback, which allows him to get into position. He takes good angles to shorten the field and attack the ball, staying low in his pads to deliver forceful hits on the move. He has very good vision for tracking the ball in flight. He closes on the play with good urgency and just lacks the speed to go long distances. He does a very good job of stepping in front of the ball and has the leg drive to break tackles on the interception. GRADE: 7.0

Range/Recovery: While he lacks the explosive burst to close, Chung's ability to take proper angles and build to top acceleration has made him effective delivering tackles along the sideline. Even with his adequate timed speed, he has the ability to cover ground when the ball is in the air (carries his equipment well). He is more of a build-up type than one than will generate explosion, but his long stride allows him to build his acceleration quickly. GRADE: 6.6

Jumping Ability: Chung has very good timing to go up and compete for the ball at its high point. He does a very good job of tracking the ball over his shoulders and is quick to get his head turned around on the move. He shows natural hands for the interception and has the athletic ability to adjust to the ball at its high point. When he sees the ball released by the quarterback, he is usually smart enough to get into position to make the play. The thing you see on film is that he shows good aggression competing for the ball. GRADE: 6.7

Hands: Chung is a natural hands catcher who does a good job of extending and plucking the ball away from the body's frame. He zones in on the pass once it is thrown and will do whatever he needs to attack the pass and prevent the reception. He might not be the fastest man coverage defender around, but compensates with forceful hand usage, knowing how to reroute tight ends and slot receivers when jamming them at the line. He also uses his hands effectively to ward off blocks aimed for his legs when working through trash. His ability to extend for the ball has resulted in several spectacular interceptions. His hands are large enough to properly secure the ball. GRADE: 7.0

Run Defense: Chung is a classic downhill player who hits with pop on contact when playing in the box. He breaks down well in space and stays low in his pads. He knows how to slip past and avoid blocks on the move. He is quick to come up and fill the gaps and maintains leverage to prevent the lead blocker from blowing him off the ball. He is best when working in the box, as his ball anticipation skills and instincts make it very difficult to fool him on draw plays or misdirection. He plays smart and once he locates the ball working through trash, he is quick to close. He comes up to hit with urgency. He has very good force coming up to fill and overpowering strength at times, but will get a bit reckless, needing to play with more consistent control. GRADE: 6.9

Tackling Ability: Chung is an explosive hitter who can cause a receiver to hesitate before getting to the ball. He has the ability to be an effective wrap-up tackler, as he has the strength to thump on contact and will throw his body at the ball carrier. He is best when allowed to make plays in front of him rather than taking a side. When he can keep the action in front, he is a reliable tackler will explode into the opponent. He is consistent to staying low in his pads in order to wrap better, but will get caught up in the action at times and get over-aggressive, taking him out of the action. GRADE: 6.6

Compares To: MIKE BROWN, ex-Chicago -- Like Brown, Chung lacks the size of a prototype strong safety, but he makes plays vs. action in front of him. His timed speed does not really translate to the field, making him a bit of a liability covering the deep third of the field. He is a nice fit for a Cover-2 scheme, as he has the physical ability to step up in the box and make crunching tackles playing downhill. He has very good ball skills and receivers are always hesitant to come into his area due to his explosive tackling ability.

 Player Statistics

  

 
 Draft Scout Player News
09/24/14 - S Patrick Chung has been part of a rotation of players working the safety spot next to Devin McCourty. A former second-round pick and starter in New England who spent last season playing for the Eagles, Chung brings a physical style to the field in his return to the Patriots. "Pat's been good," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. "He's contributed for us on all four downs. He's obviously familiar with our system and we're familiar with him. I'm glad that we're able to get him back on the team this year. I think he's contributed well on first down, third down, fourth down. I think Pat is pretty much the same player he was when he was here. He's in great condition. He's smart, he's tough, he's a very good tackler and he has versatility -- he can play in a lot of different situations."
04/03/14 - S Patrick Chung, who was released by the Philadelphia Eagles last month, was signed by the Patriots. Chung lasted just one year into a three-year, $10 million contract signed with the Eagles in 2013. Chung, 26, spent four seasons with New England (2009-12) after joining the team as a second-round draft pick (34th overall) out of Oregon in 2009. The 5-foot-11, 210-pounder signed with the Eagles as an unrestricted free agent on March 12, 2013. He was released by Philadelphia on March 11. Chung has played in 62 NFL games with 40 starts and has registered 291 total tackles, seven interceptions, 22 passes defensed and one fumble recovery. He has played in eight postseason games with five starts and has added 23 total tackles. Chung played in 50 games with 30 starts during his first four seasons with New England and accumulated 235 total tackles, seven interceptions and 19 passes defensed. He blocked a punt and a field goal in the same game at Miami on Oct. 4, 2010, and finished that season with a career-best 89 total tackles. Last season in Philadelphia, Chung played in 12 games with 10 starts and finished with 56 total tackles, three passes defensed and one fumble recovery. He started in the Eagles' postseason game against the New Orleans Saints on Jan. 4 and finished with four total tackles.
04/01/14 - S Patrick Chung had his contract terminated by the Eagles March 11.
01/07/14 - S Patrick Chung probably won't be back next year. Chung, who signed as a free agent last March, was a disappointment and was one of their biggest defensive liabilities.
01/01/14 - S Patrick Chung is the Eagles' biggest defensive liability. But with Earl Wolff still sidelined with a knee injury, and Kurt Coleman still not completely recovered from a hamstring injury, the Eagles have few other options but to keep playing him.
