What’s all the hype about?

The Patriots have been in training camp for about two weeks, and no one can shut up about this fourth round draft choice from Wisconsin. Whether it is the beat reporters, Tom Brady, or even Bill Belichick, this organization is already excited about what this kid can bring to the offense.

White is an extremely dependable back, he has a nice burst, good hands, and is versatile. This seems like the perfect back for this offensive system. Obviously Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen are entrenched as the top two on the depth chart, but White could really help out this team in 2014. Whether it is simply spelling Ridley and Vereen, or actually getting multiples series during a game to himself, he has the talent to make a name for himself in his first year in the league.

I can’t wait to see how he looks against the Redskins’ front seven tomorrow night.
