Big hopes for Burkhead





From Karen Guregian's article "Which opponent is on tap for Patriots season opener?"

NFL Network analyst Solomon Wilcots believes Bill Belichick’s interest simply comes from understanding what’s necessary to win in today’s game.

Wilcots, who hails from Cincinnati and has attended plenty of Bengals practices, believes running back Rex Burkhead will be a star with the Patriots.

“Bill Belichick hit it out of the park with that dude,” said Wilcots. “He is one of the most fundamentally sound football players in every facet that you can ever ask of a running back. He can run, he can run with speed, he can run with power, he can run inside, he can block, he can pass protect, he can play special teams, he’ll blow somebody up on kickoffs, he can catch it, the guy is an excellent receiver . . . This dude can do everything you want a running back to do. There are no weak areas. That’s all I can tell you. And I’ve watched him four years here.”
