Shane Vereen   #34 RB

Height: 5-10   Weight: 205   Age: 29

Born: 3/2/1989 Valencia , CA

College: California

Experience: 8th season

High School: Valencia HS [CA]









Draft 2011

Pick No.56

Selected By: New England Patriots

Round: 2

Pick (Overall): 24 (56)

Pick Analysis: Vereen emerged from Jahvid Best's shadow to have breakout season in 2010 and he could be an effective weapon on third down at the next level. Vereen lacks the size and speed to be an every down back, but he is terrific pass catcher out of the back field that will keep the chains moving. He has very good vision and could be very effective in a zone blocking scheme. He also has the hands and enough lateral agility to contribute as a returner. Vereen has a limited ceiling but he is a quality back that could sneak into the third round.
