Weekly chat kicks off at noon

Every Thursday on ESPNBoston.com, there is a Patriots chat in the early afternoon. This week's chat kicks off at noon, and questions can be submitted in advance.

Chatters are invited to pick one player they think will surprise in 2012, and share it in the discussion.

Second-year running back Shane Vereen gets the nod from here.

Catch up in a bit.
