Right Field

Brief chronicles of our sporting times.

The Lawfirm Retained?


The Patriots drafted Cal running back Shane Vereen with the 24th pick in the second round — a guy who most projected to be a borderline third- to fourth-round pick, though he was ranked that low because he’s a third-down-type back. Vereen becomes the heir to Kevin Faulk. 

Just when you thought it safe to assume that BenJarvus Green-Ellis would keep his role as the pounder/finisher for the Pats, Belichick drafts 5′ 11″, 225-pound RB Stevan Ridley out of LSU.

Now Bill B. drafts Ryan Mallett.

Crafty picks all, I think. 

But Nate’s still waiting for his Clay Matthews-type linebacker.
