2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jul-08-2014 by Daniel Kalles

IT'S REALLY HAPPENING: Look for Shane Vereen to be the leader in the Patriots' backfield this season. Despite only playing in eight games last season, he played almost as many snaps as Stevan Ridley. Vereen's value jumps up big time in PPR leagues as he caught 47 passes in eight contests (good enough for just under six receptions per game). The Patriots have a history of going with the hot hand at RB, but the offense moved much better when Vereen was healthy; as long as he stays healthy, the former Cal running back should be a Top 20 running back.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
8.06 FFToolbox - Cindie Crain - This pick looks even better today now that it appears that Aaron Hernandez is looking at significant legal troubles in the immediate future. Couple that with Gronkowski's injury history and I think Shane Vereen might be my best pick of the draft thus far.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
7.01 FFToolbox - Vereen is a guy that's been skyrocketing up draft boards all summer. I've seen him as early as a late 4th round pick in some of the high stakes drafts. With questions to Gronk, the loss of both Hernandez and Welker, I think Vereen has the most to gain.

7.02 CBSSports - My second gamble pick. This might seem early for Vereen, but he's one of my favorite players this year. Even though Stevan Ridley is the starter, Vereen is going to get plenty of touches as he replaces Danny Woodhead. With the Patriots needing help in their receiving corps, Vereen is a strong candidate to help out. He could easily reach 1,000 total yards and seven touchdowns, which is how many Woodhead scored last year. He's going to surprise a lot of people this season with how he plays.
