Shane Vereen is a running back that is climbing higher up draft boards as draft day approaches. A well-rounded player, Vereen is quick, powerful, and uses his compact frame to his advantage. While not a burner, Vereen is fast enough to hit the edge when needed, and shows good elusiveness in the open field. Buried behind a long line of great running backs at Cal, he used the 2010 season as his major coming out party. He is a one cut and go runner, who’s best fit may be behind a zone blocking line. Vereen should easily be off the board by the end of round 3, and a jump into the 2nd round could be possible.
