We don't know anything about Pierre Strong at this point. There is no "if a guy like" for someone who touched the ball all of 17 times in his first year on the Pats (which is about right for that team for any rookie RB not named Sony Michel or Rhamondre Stevenson).
Strong was drafted lower than expected, by the way, and his athleticism is top-tier (sub 4 40). I'm not counting him out yet at all.
Many here wanted to get rid of James White and Shane Vereen early on in their career here. It’s a position they have always done a good job of filling.
