RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Bolden maintained a healthy 4.9 YPC and upped his number of receptions from two the year previous, to 21 in 2013. His utility role in the Patriot's offense came about with injuries to Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen. His role projects to be much of the same in 2014.

2013

Bolden figures to directly compete with newcomer LeGarrette Blount for a depth role behind presumed starter Stevan Ridley. Both are bruising backs and unless injuries hit the team's other backfield options during the preseason, it's quite possible that only one of the two will make the team's final roster.

2012

A fractured ankle that Bolden suffered as a senior, plus a one-game suspension he was handed, probably caused him to slide out of the draft, but he'll take aim at cracking a New England backfield that also includes Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen, Danny Woodhead and Joseph Addai. Even if he doesn't make the team's final roster, he could end up on the team's practice squad out of the gate, as fellow undrafted free agent BenJarvus Green-Ellis did.
