3. Shane Vereen
One of the Super Bowl heroes, Vereen has often been heralded for his ability as a receiver out of the backfield. That was the difference as he continued to move the chains on third-down against the Seahawks earlier this month. Perhaps doing it with a national audience has other NFL teams chomping at the bit to add his skills to their offense.
While New England utilized Vereen mainly as a pass-catcher, he does have the ability to be a true running back. It’ll be interesting to see if other teams view him in the same light.
Vereen has never carried the ball 100 times in a season yet in four years, but does boast a 4.2 yard per carry average. Perhaps his next team will allow him to prove he’s no one-trick pony.
