Maurice Stovall certainly has the opportunity to break out this season and could even start the season as #2 if he can displace Clayton from atop the depth chart.

Rocky Mac has been reported being one of the people at Redskins Park every day. He put on some weight too, but is still probably one of the fastest to the edge. I haven't seen him rush yet, but I think GW will have a field day with this kid. He came in the final game of the year and led the team in tackles. Plus now he has a reliable secondary behind him (when healthy :\) and great veteran leadership with Fletcher and Washington.


Thank god he's starting now.

I think Chris Chester will start for the Ravens

Ngata will do well and possibly push for a pro bowl spot, he did great at the end of the year

Landry will be a stud and play great like he did last year

Demetrius Williams will also do good as a vertical threat for the Ravens.

PalmerToCJ
06-23-2007, 10:59 AM
For the Bengals there's no doubt in my mind that Ahmad Brooks will break out. He was a stud his first two games but then was overwhelmed by the scheme (had little time to learn it). His abilities were never questioned as he was amazing blitzing and in run support it was just an understanding of how the defense worked as a whole. He's spent the entire offseason learning the playbook and will start at MLB. He has made it known that he wants to be the leader of the defense with Brian Simmons gone. He should explode.

For other teams I'd have to say Vernon Davis, Ashton Youboty, Brandon Marshall and Cedric Griffin.

06-23-2007, 11:25 AM
so much homerism.....

anyways I think that:
Leinart - ARI
Deangelo Williams - CAR
Rocky McIntosh - WAS
Greg Jennings - GB
Jerious Norwood - ATL
Owen Daniels - HOU
Jamar Williams - CHI


All these players will definantly have a chance to shine this year

Cutler

been promoting him since before he was drafted, saying he would be the best of the bunch, and right now he's probably at the bottom of the 3 while taking into wins/success. but i stick with my boy, he's goin to get it done this year.

Sims

has to make more game changing plays this year. he's to good to not, and i think last year was more fluke than a trend (no int, no sack, no FF, if i'm correct). He hits to hard, runs to fast, and is to crazy to not do it this year.

Cromartie

He appears to have everything u want except experience. well, he got some last year, and hopefully this year he puts it together. he's got the ability to do it.

Richard Marshal & Kelly Jennings

both played well last year for the respective teams. Marshall will have the harder fight for his starting job, but he's got the talent to win it over either Lucas or Gamble (very solid 3 CBs). Jennings i think will get noticed more this year, as he is overlooked but has been a very consistent and reliable player since his college days.

I like Cedric Griffen also

Everyone points out homerism but people know their own teams best, I don't follow other teams nearly as closely so why would I have a good grasp on which guys I really think will break out other than what I saw from them last year? Of course people are going to pick their own players because they are much more educated on them. Granted, some reason for picking them may be that they're on the team but in most cases people have reasons.

I also would like to add Jerious Norwood, I'm not sure on DeAngelo Williams... I thought he would be big time last year but things never worked out granted I know a lot of that was via injury. I would say Maroney but I think he's like Johnathan Joseph in the sense that they're already had big games so I think they already broke out.

Philliez01
06-23-2007, 01:38 PM
I also would like to add Jerious Norwood

That is a good one right there. With Dunn creepin' in terms of age and potentially durability (he's been good lately but at his age, workload and stature?), I think Norwood will be a stud in a year or so.

Go_Eagles77
06-23-2007, 01:39 PM
Sorry to burst your bubble but the only way MJG can break out this year is if their is an injury at LG, he's just a backup now, Brodrick Bunkley on the other hand looks to be the prime canidate for breakout 2nd year player.

saintsfan912
06-23-2007, 01:57 PM
Reggie fricking Bush will break out even more than he did last season. He finally came on in his last 4 games and with Deuce another year from his injury he will be able to take some heat off Reggie. Expect 12-15 TDs from Reggie in this offense, especially with another year to learn the system and another year for the Oline to grow together.

I'll have to agree with the DeAngelo Williams and Kelly Jennings mentionings. Those are two I'm looking out for.

PoopSandwich
06-23-2007, 02:45 PM
I would have to say that I expect Reggie to have a big year (last year was big but his YPC was too low.)

I would expect Cutler to actually lead the Broncos offense to put up some points...

I actually don't know what to think about Vernon Davis, I'm not sure he's going to be sweet, but hes just too physically gifted to not be amazing.

Deangelo Williams should have a good year, I hope he bounces back from his injury.

My pick though for the "Breakout" player of the year, is Micheal Huff... I really expect him to dominate in that Raiders secondary and put up pro-bowl numbers, I think my boy Sean Jones won't get in to the pro bowl because of Reed Polamalu and Huff.

My pick for the Browns will be that Leon Williams earns a starting spot over Andra Davis... I like him but Leon/D'Qwell are better all around in my opinion, and Leon Williams looked like a freak in the time he got... So if you will, my homer pick for the Browns breakout player is Leon Williams.

Paul
06-23-2007, 02:55 PM
Thomas Howard - had decent year his rookie year. I expect even better things this coming up seaosn.

For the homer pick I'll be Jason Hatcher.

keylime_5
06-23-2007, 02:59 PM
Hopefully D'Qwell Jackson. I'd say Matt Leinart, Santonio Holmes, Ashton Youboty, and Vernon Davis.

Homer Pick: DeAngelo Williams. Healthy offensive line in front of him, an offense catering to his strengths with a ZBS running game and a lot more screens.

Antonio Cromartie: Arguably one of the best athletes in the league now with a year under his belt in a difficult defensive system.

Marcedis Lewis: The best pure receiver of the tight end class last year should have a good year finally being healthy, number one of the DC and having some stability at QB.

Jay Cutler

For the 49ers, ill do a name most people havent heard- Parys Haralson. Hes a 3-4 OLB that is very fast off the snap. Injured last year but could be a good pass rushing threat under greg manusky, who developed guys like Shaun Phillips and Shawne Merriman.

d34ng3l021
06-24-2007, 12:20 AM
Cutler or Leinart. One of them is going to explode and surprise alot of people. The other one will be mediocre.

Vernon Davis will make the Pro Bowl, and will have more than 16 yards per catch, along with 8 TDs.

Mario Williams will show some reasoning as to why he was picked before Reggie Bush. I expect 10-14 sacks out of him.

DeAngelo Williams. I hate saying this, but with the ZBS and his style of play, he can do very well. Especially later on in the season, when the ZBS has implemented itself well, and the OL can perform it well.

Michael Huff will be playing his more natural position @ FS, and I can see him making big plays. He was kind of dissapointing in his first season, but should do better when being given the role of FS. How much I wanted him last year...

Jimmy Williams or Jerious Norwood. I am not exactly sure how well Jerious Norwood will succeed in a powerblocking scheme. He was amazing in the ZBS, but with the new scheme in place, I am not so sure. He is a very fast and tough runner, so I do expect 1000 yards from him. Jimmy Williams is a perfect fit for the FS position, but seems to be struggling a bit in camp. If he can learn the position in time, I think he can make a big impact for the Falcons defense.

D'brickshaw Ferguson. With all the McNeil hype, many people are forgetting about this athletic monster. He had some trouble with bullrushes and some penalty problems as well (i think) but with another year of offseason conditioning, I think he can arise to greatness.

Damn. This 2006 class is ridiculous.

Woody56

Bills - Donte Whitner

Staubach12
06-24-2007, 12:29 PM
I can see Reggie Bush making much more of an impact this year. I think Jay Cutler will soon be realized as one of the best in the game. Laurence Maroney will dominate, mark my words. Despite what everyone's saying about him, I could see LenDale White having a pretty good year. Sometime this year, Kellen Clemens will come in. I can feel it, ansd when he does, it'll be a good thing. I've always known Claude Wroten would be a player, and he's ready to break out. Watch him closely. If Jerious Norwood gets more carries this year (which I'm not sure about), he could have a great year. Watch Jason Hatcher for Dallas, he's going to get more time this year at DE, and he'll be one heck of a player. T.J. Rushing could be a heck of a player at KR. Yup.

It's a shame the lack of mention he gets among '06 rookie DT's given how great of a year he had. Our defense was best when he was in there and the starting job is his now.

For the ATL...

Jerious Norwood, RB- Fastest good runningback in the league. Great vision. Underestimated power. Great hands. Not extremely elusive until in the open field but is very explosive. Should have a ton of total offensive yards.

Jimmy Williams, FS- People must be forgetting how good of an athlete thios guy is. I mean, 6'2 210 and runs a 4.4. Showed great tackling and hitting ability in his rookie year. SHould shine as a FS if he learns the position in time.

Tre' Stallings as in the Mississippi tackle who now plays guard for the Chiefs? I think he could be a good player but I don't think it's his time yet. I didn't watch him in NFL Europe but the guys on sports talk radio here in KC said he had a very strong season over their and the Chiefs front office is raving over his performance. However, I simply do not see him beating out John Welbourn at right guard this year.

I've actually heard that he doesn't respond to coaching well. He seems like a less talented version of LaVar Arrington to me.

PalmerToCJ
06-29-2007, 12:19 AM
I've actually heard that he doesn't respond to coaching well. He seems like a less talented version of LaVar Arrington to me.

That was somewhat a fact last year. They said he didn't put enough time in film and he wasn't activated the later part of the season. Ahmad, coaches and fellow players have come out and said this year that he wasn't commited enough last year and that he has changed this year. He is calling the plays, knows where he's supposed to be and watched a ton of film. Here's a good quote to give evidence to the sort of change and why I think he'll bust out big this year:

His lack of attentiveness in the classroom irked the defensive coaches and his less than committed approach to special teams took him off position coach Darrin Simmonsí depth chart. All that combined to bench him late last season, but that changed when Brooks sat down with defensive coordinator Chuck Bresnahan upon his return this past March in the wake of the release of veteran linebacker Brian Simmons.

ďI have to add that extra time that Carson (Palmer) and pretty much all of our leaders on this team (are) doing and showing my teammates thatís what Iím about,Ē Brooks said earlier this week. ďIíve got my head on straight. I see what the NFL is all about."

ďI want to show them Iím a leader, that Iím willing to do whatever it takes to step in Brianís shoes and be a leader and take control of the defense,Ē Brooks said. ďIíve got to know what Iím doing on my assignments so that I can play fast.

Coaches rode him hard last year and apparently he's pleasing them thus far this offseason. Ok, that ends my homer rant.

That was somewhat a fact last year. They said he didn't put enough time in film and he wasn't activated the later part of the season. Ahmad, coaches and fellow players have come out and said this year that he wasn't commited enough last year and that he has changed this year. He is calling the plays, knows where he's supposed to be and watched a ton of film. Here's a good quote to give evidence to the sort of change and why I think he'll bust out big this year:

Vernon... not AJ

50 bucks says Vernon probably broke the tackle.

I'll go out on a limb and say Ray Edwards.

Arrington was drafted #2 overall. He was what Ahmad Brooks was supposed to be coming out of college.

I really hope Antonio Cromartie beats out Drayton Florence. Florence is a great corner but has hands of stooooooone. It's comical. He had like 9 easy dropped balls on the season. He honestly had 4 bounce off his hands in the home game against Denver alone, and they all made it onto NFL replay.

Of the 3 he actually got his hands on, 2 were on 4th down when the game was pretty much over. Obviously the secondary coaches in SD are not up on the "4th down, knock it down" mantra. See McCree, Marlon.

Since Flo won't be back for 2008, I say you might as well give Cromartie a shot and let him develop.

With a year of adjustment under his belt, this is the year Reggie sets the league on fire. No homer.

Agreed, sir.

You forget though, Ahmad Brooks could still be the best linebacker in the game in a few years. He's had some bad time the last few months, but the potential and ability he showed at Georgia that Al Groh gushed over is still there.
