Overview:

Shane Vereen is yet another talented mid-round RB in this years draft. Shane Vereen isn’t a very explosive runner but he is well-rounded and gets the job done. He has great vision and agility and his versatility will be highly sought after by NFL teams. He’s not a power back, but he’s not a speed back either. However, with his versatility he should be able to stick on an NFL team’s roster as a change of pace back and potentially as a starter.
