Patriots Roster Prediction #21: S Pat Chung

Player Name: S Pat Chung

Experience: 1 Season in the NFL, with the New England Patriots

Past Role: Chung followed the Brandon Meriweather rookie treatment; he didn't play too much, but instead spent time learning the system and getting stronger. He played a lot of special teams as well as some extra playing time late in games. He showed his versatility as a rookie by notching sacks, interceptions and pass deflections, as well as strong tackling.

Predicted Role: Chung should start next to Meriweather due to his skill set as an all around safety. He is a sound tackler and should do well playing in and around the box. He should start as many games as possible and should be a perfect complement to Meriweather- Chung should have a Rodney Harrison-esque impact on the defense. He should also help out on special teams.

Predicted Season Numbers: 14 Games Started, 16 Games Played, 65 Tackles, 4 Sacks, 2 Forced Fumble, 3 Interceptions, 3 Passes Deflected

Predicted Depth Chart: #1 SS, #3 FS

Summary: Look for Chung to be the playmaking safety that Harrison used to be. He'll be a solid full time starter in his second year and he should make large strides as a player over the course of the season.
