After trading down from the 60th pick, the Patriots have selected Stevan Ridley (RB, LSU). Ridley joins Shane Vereen as new additions to the Patriots’ stable of running backs.
Ridley is almost the polar opposite of Vereen. He struggles at times out of the backfield in the passing game, but excels in the power running game. He is a north/south runner.
Ridley (5’11″, 225) ran for over 1100 yards and scored 15 TD’s during the 2010 season.
