Patriots Select Cal RB Shane Vereen
With the 56th pick in the NFL Draft Bill Belichick picked 5'10" 210 lb running back Shane Vereen out of California. Vereen is considered a great great pass blocker, a strong slasher, and has incredible hands. At one point Shane had a streak of 34 straight catches without a drop. Vereen also has some kick return experience. Many believe Vereen is set to take over Kevin Faulk's role with the Patriots.
