    Another good sign:

    •RB Brandon Bolden is getting time on special teams units. That’s pointing him to a roster sport down the line.

    Brandon Bolden. Well if he looks the way he does at training camp the same way he does in the highlight videos, it's no wonder he is making an impression. Kid appears to have a nice burst combined with good size for the position.

    NFL Draft Preview: Brandon Bolden - YouTube

    His grandfather was a 10 year nfl wr, so he has bloodlines. But apparently he has some red flags in his past which is probably why he went undrafted.

    Appears to be confident at his precombine interview.

    Not ready to annoint him yet, but it sounds like he has made a case to make the roster. Looking forward to seeing him in preseason.

    So Woodhead loses a spot to a guy who wasn't drafted and hasn't played one down in the NFL??

    Don't get me wrong I'm on the Bolden Bandwagon as well but I don't see Bolden stealing any of the RB's roster spots. Either he takes a FB's spot or they keep 5 Backs including the FB.

    So here's a question for you all- If you had to choose one, Bolden or Larsen??

    On Tuesday at camp Bolden broke out a nice run and some idiot started cheering Woodhead.

    You miss the point, my friend.

    And you also paint me with the same brush as the OP, which is...kinda ridiculous. :eek:

    Perhaps it was unintentional, but the affect is the same: Anybody reading your grossly misleading post might now think I'm pimping Bolden as a Fantasy Sleeper and The Next Corey Dillion, which is hilarious.

    I was merely addressing the other guy's rude attempt to tell the OP how to feel. :rolleyes:

    Y'all should be able to refute a point ~ and as emphatically as you wish to ~ without doing that.

    That's all I'm saying. Peace. :cool:

    If by "alike" you mean "completely different." ;)

    I don't follow the NCAA at all, so the first time I see any players is when they line up and play in NFL uniforms.

    Having said that, of the two RBs the Pats drafted last year, Vereen and Ridley, I thought that Vereen was the thumper. Am I wrong?

    In a word, yes.

    The spin then was that in the proverbial "thunder and lightning" combo, Vereen would be the lightning.

    E
    The funny thing is some posters on this board act as if the comments regarding Bolden being a fantasy sleeper, and him pushing Ridley for the lead back role was made up by myself. When I clearly stated those were the sentiments of Mike Lombardi, not me.

    I simply wanted to pass along the info. Because it's not very often you hear such rave reviews from a source as close to the team as Lombardi regarding an udfa.

    Anyone who takes issue with the comments I posted should direct their arrogance to Lombardi.

    They are all from the same graduating class, and its the junior season, the most important as so many juniors declare for the draft.

    You don't think they are equal in talent level? If Bolden declared his junior year he's probably drafted in between Vereen and Ridley or even above them depending on a better combine being healthy. Subsequently, if Vereen or Ridley were injured and had a poor senior year they wouldve been late rounders or undrafted as well like Bolden.

    You do realize that the Dillon quote was intentional hyperbole, right?

    Yep.

    But perhaps you should keep your hyperbole to your OWN opinions.

    That way, I don't have to explain to others that I don't think what you SAY I think...EH?? ;)

    I'm adding some quotes that may help the situation.
