    Some people think he was drafted to replace kevin faulk.. This guys gonna be what maroney was supposed to be... Our main back, and the cherry on top is that he can catch out of the backfield already, doesnt have to learn it. Also, from the article, he sounds like a high character / smart kid too. Obv. if hes 80% of what marshall faulk was, it'll be great. I think the comparision is the style of running back, no one is suggesting hes gonna be the next marshall faulk.

    Vareen for President 2012. Not being sarcastic.

    Im optimistic. he might not have the total yards and touchdowns but that is because instead of him being a feature back and getting worn down, he will be a part of a 4 headed monster with a a beastly Oline in front of him paving the way.

    he is fast, strong and can catch. Sounds good to me.

    Vareen is a great fit in the Pats offense.

    His smarts might be his best asset. Welker and Brady talk about seeing the same thing and counting on the other guy to know what's up and what to do. I bet Vareen can get in on some of that.

    Pats in my opinion had a fanastic draft. Rebuilt the offensive line added real good running backs awesome QB. Dowling is a big CB.  And when free agency opens, BB likes experienced guys for defensive purposes. Again, great draft, team is getting younger stronger and ready to go !!!

    [QUOTE]How about Ray Edwards or Kiwanuka at DE and Lawson or Julian Peterson at OLB? I;d like one vet at each spot to see if they can handle the 3-4, but mostly as a pass rushing specialist option at each spot.
    Posted by RidingWithTheKing[/QUOTE]

    That is a collection of 4-3 talent. Kiwanuka and Edwards would be Lbers here, and Peterson would be too small to play LBer here.

    Neither Edwards, nor (especially) Kiwanuka, are likely to be interested in standing up, and neither of them would be good as 3-4 ends.

    This draft is growing on me.  Brady was running for his life in our last two playoff losses.  He was under a lot of pressure.  Perhaps BB blames our losses not on a lack of pass rush....

    I think if we become a team that can run over you at will, we will do well in the playoffs.

    Re: An interesting Vereen comparison

    Vereen will at least be a condidate for rookie of the year. He will be a feature back. He will get spelled at times such as in packages with Faulk/Woodhead and for tough inside yards with Ridley.

    He may end up a better RB than Ingram.

    There would have to be total fore-knowledge of the fact that they would spend most of their time standing. BB isn't bringing in 3rd down specialists for big dollars. 

    Kiwanuka was already iupset that the Gints had him standing part time ... and I'm sure he would take a contract elsewhere to play on his hands full-time before coming here.

    You all may not like them but if the Patriots add either Babin or Edwards to play the 5 technique DE then with Cunningham and the rest of the guys they would be a formidable defense. The draft was just the first phase!

    Didn't the Jets get a lot of 'coverage sacks' in the playoff game? I seem to remember Brady having time to throw but not being able to find open receivers. Why can't Pats?

    Exactly, which is why I love the Ras-I Dowling pick.

    Last year we had McCourty and Arrington/Butler whilhite. Not bad but not great either.

    I'll take McCourty, Dowling and Bodden over 2010's DB's any day.

    I don't think Edwards or Kiwanuka are fits in our 3-4 defense.  If I were BB, here is would I would do to adress our main holes

    DL: Sign Cullen Jenkins
    OLB: Sign Manny Lawson and Matt Roth
    WR: Trade for Steve Smith

    Do this and we are locked and loaded for next season!

    Re: An interesting Vereen comparison

    I'm not sure how Manny Lawson helps this team. What is his career sack high? 5? He is a 43 OLB. Matt Roth?

    I mean these guys aren't any better than what is on the roster.

    Yeah, I would agree. At this point in their careers, they are much more comfortable bending over.
