Pats just picked the Kevin Faulk of the future. Announced by “Tip,” Andre Tippett, Shane Vereen, No. 56 overall from Cal, is a slashing runner and an above average receiver at 5' 10" and 210 lbs. He's in the Brian Westbrook - Kevin Faulk mode, a good blocker and a one cut runner. Be ready for multiple running back looks from the pats running game.
All of us want to run away from the fact that the Patriots have been embarrassed two years in a row with quick first round exits; perhaps “Coach Bill” can learn a lesson from Claude “Crunch Time Kingpin” Julien, and stick to protection.
