LeBron James wrote:What do you all think of this guy? Will he get a shot this year with Stevan Ridley doing so good now? Not sure what he's doing now, maybe just playing on special teams. I don't think they drafted him in front of Ridley to sit on the bench all year. He could be sleeper potential in case Ridley or BGE gets hurt.
Any team but the Patriots I'd agree with you on the draft pecking order - but it is the Patriots.
They don't care who your are or where you were drafted.
They cut Randy Moss what, 6 games into last season?
They cut Brandon Merriweather (a relatively young, high draft pack & 2 time Pro-Bowler) a week before this season started.
They traded for 85, and he barely plays.
Didn't they also cut one of their 2010 starting CB's the same time they got rid of Merriweather?
They typically have about twice the "normal" amount of draft picks every year.
Vereen was what a 2nd or 3rd rounder & Ridley was a 3rd or 4th? It's not like he was taken in CJ Spiller's draft slot - oh wait, bad example, Buffalo doesn't play him either...
