For the second time in three years Mayo posted ridiculous tackle numbers in 2012, finishing fourth in the NFL with 147 stops. Mayo's solo numbers are down from a few years ago, but that didn't stop Mayo from putting up top 10 numbers for the second time in three years. The Patriots' scorekeepers love to hand out assists, so if Mayo can nudge his solos above 90, or pick up an extra big play or two, a top-five IDP finish is well within reason.
