James White "looked great" in spring
"Looks like a carbon copy of Shane Vereen"
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jun 22, 5:35 pm

New England Patriots
In the battle of third-down backs, James White looks like a carbon copy of Shane Vereen. Hes lined up in all the same places, and turned in some spectacular catches, particularly on wheel routes coming out of the backfield. Hes made a few drops, but all in all, looks great. Its important to remember he also looked great last year at this time before falling off the map. Dion Lewis has earned praise on the field from Brady for his route-running. Hes also been a primary kick returner in drills. He has some giddy-up in his step. Travaris Cadet, another free agent who was the third down back in New Orleans, has had some good moments. (Boston Herald)

FFToday's Take: Last Thursday, Boston Globe beat writer Ben Volin speculated that Cadet had a leg up on the job, which should tell owners just about everything they need to know about believing everything they read in the offseason. White should be considered as a slight favorite simply because the Patriots drafted him last year with the intention of him becoming the heir apparent to Vereen, but hell need to carry his offseason performance into the preseason - something he was unable to do last year.


Dion Lewis in mix to replace Vereen
Figures to battle Cadet, White for pass-catching role

Random thought: In competition among pass-catching RBs, four-year veteran Dion Lewis should not be overlooked. (Mike Reiss on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Lewis has been a bit of a journeyman (Eagles, Browns and Colts) thus far in his NFL career, usually getting injured about the time he looked to be on the verge of establishing a role. James White was drafted last year to eventually replace Shane Vereen and was the talk of the offseason before failing to impress in the preseason. Travaris Cadet is an explosive receiver out of the backfield, but recorded only 11 carries in three years in New Orleans. White should be the favorite, but he'll need to impress the Patriots in the preseason this time around.
