NFL Mock Draft 2011: The New England Patriots Use Fourth Pick on a RB
LeShoure Joins BenJarvus Green-Ellis In The Backfield
The New England Patriots will use their fourth pick either on a wide receiver or a running back. Using my crystal ball, I have determined Bill Belichick decides to go with Mikel LeShoure.
The Patriots have two picks in each of the first three rounds, so two rounds in here we are at pick number four. In this mock draft I have had the Patriots take a pass rusher, a wide receiver, an offensive lineman and now they take a running back.
LeShoure is a good prospect and the Patriots have a need to add depth to their backfield. BenJarvus Green-Ellis is a good running back, but he is no Maurice Jones-Drew or Chris Johnson.
This is not to say LeShoure is (It is a little premature to be making those kinds of predictions), but it is saying the Patriots could use a little more depth in the backfield.
Tom "I cry a lot" Brady could benefit from having more options out of the backfield and it never hurts to have a great running game, just ask the Chiefs.
