RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Foot and hamstring Injuries as well as the Patriots' running-back depth have limited Vereenís productivity (he missed nearly all of his rookie year and the first three games of 2012), but a three-touchdown performance in last year's playoffs offered a glimmer of upside. With Danny Woodhead now in San Diego, Vereen is the favorite to see the bulk of the third-down work, as he's a skilled pass catcher and has the speed (4.5 40) to rack up yards after the catch. While Stevan Ridley is still slated to be team's lead back, the more versatile and explosive Vereen was drafted ahead of him and has yet to stay healthy long enough to challenge for the starting job. That could change this year if Vereen outperforms Ridley when he gets his opportunities.

2012

After being taken in the second round of the draft, Vereen was given just 15 carries as a rookie last season, thanks partially to injuries and also to a muddled backfield in New England. BenJarvus Green-Ellis left via free agency, so there will be more opportunities in 2012, with fellow sophomore Stevan Ridley the main competition. Danny Woodhead also remains around to take away touches, while Joseph Addai was added through free agency, and the Patriots can be unpredictable in their backfield usage, often changing drastically week-to-week based on opponents and game plans. Vereen will almost certainly be a part of a timeshare, but heís enticing playing in such a high-powered offense.

2011

The Patriots used the No. 56 pick to draft Vereen, which was something of a surprise with more highly regarded running backs like Daniel Thomas and Mikel Leshoure still on the board. Of course, it would be foolish to question coach Bill Belichick, and Vereen was considered the most NFL ready RB in the draft when it comes to pass protection. New England also used a third-round pick on another running back and still has BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Danny Woodhead, so this looks like a full-blown committee. Even as a rookie, Vereen might already be the teamís most complete back, and after watching pedestrian runners line up for him the last few years, itís telling Belichick would spend a second-round pick on such a fungible position. Vereen is an intriguing name not to be overlooked.
