This year is the first real glimpse that we have seen of Vereen. You always have to earn your reps with Belichick and we have witnessed, in his limited role so far, an explosive, receiving back. I mean, he has had Ridley in front of him, but he doesn't have the hands Vereen has. With Gronk out and the Patriots WR's and TE's seeming to struggle to get separation yesterday and with Lloyds recent drop-off, I hope they start to draw some screens up with Vereen going forward. We saw how much damage he can do in the open field at Cal. Anyone else feel like he has the potential to be the next D.Sproles or is that just the homer in me talking? By the way, what ever happened to the Patriots screen game with their RB's? They used to own that phase of the game back in the day when they were winning SB's.
