Post-Draft Outlook:COULD SURPRISE: Linebacker Brandon Spikes: A 5.06-second 40-yard dash time hurt Spikes' stock, but not Bill Belichick. He sees Spikes as a big, productive force on the inside who moves as well between the tackles as any linebacker he's seen in recent years.
A closer look at the Patriots' picks: Round 2/62 -- Brandon Spikes, ILB, 6-3, 249, Florida, His 40 time hurt his draft stock, but Spikes' career at Florida showed he could flat out play. He was the captain of the defense, a force in the middle and a playmaker for the Gators. He'll play early on. - by The Sports Xchange
