Most likely to surprise in the second half of the season
Shane Vereen has this habit of sneaking in touchdown runs no one is expecting, mostly because no expects him to play when he does. He even started against the Jets. Expect those surprises to trend upward. Patriots coach Bill Belichick has spoken highly of Vereen’s talent and said with his newfound health he expects him to play to those talents. We can only join Belichick in those expectations for the 2011 second round draft choice. He certainly has speed, with what can only be described as an added bit of juice, to add to a talented backfield. With Brandon Bolden injured, Vereen’s contributions will continue to expand. But methinks it was a matter of time anyway.
