Following May's draft names like Bishop Sankey, Carlos Hyde and Terrance West dominated headlines, but it could be White who has the biggest impact as a rookie. No team transforms its offense as quickly as the Patriots year after year, and there's opportunity with LeGarrette Blount in Pittsburgh and Ridley's well-documented fumbling problems.
"He's a very interesting and versatile player," Belichick said on SiriusXM NFL Radio earlier this month. "He does a good job in the passing game and in the running game -- both inside and outside. Blitz pickup -- we have a pretty extensive offense for him to learn, but he's working hard at it.
"We'll just let him go and see how it goes, but I think he has the ability to compete on all three downs, in both the running game and the passing game."
