I had high hopes for Vereen when we drafted him. I remember before the draft, somone asked Michael Holly if he had to name one player that Pats would draft, who would it be. His answer.... Shane Vereen. He must have had some inside information about the Pats feelings about Vereen. I know he missed most of training camp with a minor injury, but I am still suprised he has not been given a chance to play. What's the story with this guy ????? Will he get a chance in 2012, or is he another of a long line of 2nd round busts? 2nd round busts.... Cunningham, Brace, Butler, Wheatley, Chad Jackson. The only real score we have had in the 2nd round is Gronkowski and I also like the Vollmer & Chung pick. The jury is still out on Dowling and Spikes. If Vereen & Dowling end up a bust, the busts far out number production from 2nd round picks in recent years.
