I agree with some of it, I dont like the rookie punter on it, and I dont think Dawan Landry will have a "break out year" with the season he just had.



So you can talk about this article or your predictions for break out players.

I'd agree with that.

Falcons Possibilities:

Michael Boley, SLB
Jimmy Williams, FS
Jonathan Babineaux, DT/UT
Justin Blalock, OG
Joey Harrington, QB??? Lol

And the other rookies (Jamaal Anderson, Chris Houston, Laurant Robinson, etc.)

To me Braylon Edwards is prob gona have the best year of all on that list.

I'm partly surprised Freddy Keiaho doesn't get a mention, the WILL linebacker is an integral position in the Colts defense and Keiaho looks like he could excel (actually being able to form tackle is a hearty improvement already). But it is understandable, Keiaho didn't see the field in 2006 as much as those on the list, so outsiders to the Colts know very little of him at the moment.

8. Brandon Jones, WR, Titans: When Drew Bennett signed with the Rams and Travis Henry left for Denver most NFL fans assumed Tennessee would go out and bring in a big free-agent signing on the offensive side of the ball. A playmaker for Vince Young. Who'd they acquire? Well, Justin Gage. Hmm ... not exactly Jerry Rice. One of the reasons Tennessee stayed relatively quiet was their comfort at the wideout spot with who they already had on the roster. The likely No. 1 target? Mr. Jones. The former Oklahoma Sooner only had 27 receptions last season, but showed some real flashes. In the Titans' Week 16 win over Buffalo, Jones grabbed five balls for 101 yards and scored a touchdown. Tennessee drafted three wide receivers in April. Each rookie should get some touches. But Young-to-Jones should be the go-to combination in '07
Nice and i agree

pretty good list, I dont know how much I agree with Mark Anderson on there though because he already had 12 sacks as a rookie and Id say he is pretty much already broke out but he still may be able to show more.

That'd be nice. I could see him putting up a 1000 yards, but pro bowl is probably unrealistic given all the balls that LT, Gates, and the rest of the corps are gonna hog up.

vincent jackson was rivers favorite target i will still see him getting the majority of the passes, even though i want to see gates a lot too, but seeing from last year jackson is his fav target

I noticed that stuff, and there's no doubt that Jackson is a specimen (his numbers are crazy; 6'5, 240, 4.4), but more than a couple times I noticed he doesn't attack the ball in the air quite like a guy his size should. Even late in the season when he was really getting some playing time, he should have had at least 5-10 more catches had he just stuck his arms out and snatched the ball.

It's nothing a little extra coaching can't fix, but I don't think he's shown enough yet to warrant a pro bowl prediction.

My top-10 breakout players:

(in no particular order other than off the top of my head)

1. Mario Williams - He has all the talent in the world, his problem is lacking the experience to utilize his gifts. Young defensive lineman rarely come into the league right away and dominate. The position takes time to learn technique necessary to succeed in the trenches. What will also help him is he now has a dedicated position, rather than being moved around like last year. He will also be healthy, which was an ongoing problem as a rookie. I expect a dominant year as a run stuffer and around double digit sacks as a pass rusher.


2. Vernon Davis - Vernon Davis' is just a scary thought. He has the tool set that inspires fear into opposing NFL defensive coordinators. He struggled mightily in the first three games of the year, culminating in a broken leg against the Eagles. When he returned though he brought along with him more knowledge of the offense and he quickly dissipated the notion that he was 'just a workout warrior' as some claim. In the month of December he had 217 yards, 2 touchdowns on a 15.5 YPC basis. Those are fantastic numbers for the TE position. All of those stats despite Alex Smith overthrowing him deep, twice while open. You could almost add another 100 yards and two more touchdowns had Smith been accurate. He drew praise from Mike Nolan regarding his blocking, which was a weakness of his in college. Another year under his belt and with Alex Smith, and he may out do every other TE not named Antonio Gates.


3. Freddie Keiaho - As Geo has pointed out, he could be excellent. The Colts didn't let Cato June just walk away for no good reason. They see something in this guy. He is the typical Tampa 2 WLB. The Colts have done an excellent job of allowing established players leave (Mike Peterson, Edgerrin James, etc) while inserting a young player to fill his role.


4. Jason Peters - The mammoth Left Tackle from Arkansas, Jason Peters was excellent in the last half of the '06 campaign. The converted tight end has the athleticism and pure size (6'4" 340-lbs) to be a dominant player. He flashed his abilities last year and I expect him to make a pro bowl this year.

5. Cedric Benson - Benson is a prototype sledgehammer. The "old school" running back as it were. What he lacks in home run speed, elusiveness and impact on the passing game, he makes up for with down hill running down the throat of the defense. Once the Bears started to give him more and more carries, he improved. He is the kind of player who only runs harder as the game goes on. Without Thomas Jones in the picture, I anticipate a 300-carry season for Benson. I would not be surprised if he ended up with numbers you'd expect from say Rudi Johnson.


6. Mark Clayton - The biggest mistake the Jacksonville Jaguars made was when they took Matt Jones, a converted QB/workout warrior, over Mark Clayton. I expect that they will regret that move for some time. Clayton has had stretches of dominance. Now with McNair being more acclimated to the offense and him being in the golden third year for the WR position, I think he will be a 1,100+ receiver in '07.


7. Sean Taylor - He's reportedly slimmed down to allow him more flexibility. The Redskins added a competent safety besides him. He is the most talented safety in the NFL. All of those three elements should contribute to a breakout campaign. Sean Taylor should be the best safety in the NFL. Thus far he's been a major disappointment. I think this year he will finally become the player we all thought he would be back before the '04 draft.


8. DJ Williams - The Al Wilson era is over in Denver. Now it's time for DJ Williams to ascend. He's been stuck in the black hole that is typically the SLB position. There is a reason that IDP fantasy leagues typically avoid SLB like the plague. Now he moves inside. The addition of Jim Bates helps, as he is known for allowing his Middle Linebackers to make plays sideline to sideline.


9. Jason Campbell - Al Saunders' offense is infamous for it's girth and difficulty to master. Jason Campbell was decent last year, but word is he has been lighting up mini-camps. For the first time he's been able to actually progress in an offensive system. As a Redskin and a Auburn Tiger he hasn't had that luxury until just now.


10. (homer alert) Michael Boley - With all I've been through, I should get to brag about what little is going right with my team. Michael Boley will be a stud. He has everything you look for in one of those late round gems, talent that can be molded. Every once in a while those types pan out. Boley excels because of his versatility. He is a 6'3" 236-lbs athlete who can play Safety, SLB and RE. In fact, he did so last year due to injuries. He's strong, fast and can fly. Best of all is he's shown a great work ethic and has been molded by Keith Brooking to turn his talent into on the field productivity. Last year he showed a nose for the ball, being involved with three sacks, two interceptions, one forced fumble and three fumble recoveries.

Shiver, I like the Vernon Davis pick. He is a freakish athlete that will finally be healthy, and with the maturation of Alex Smith he will get the oppurtunity to make plays after the catch.

Shiver, LOVE the list. Glad somebody else has noticed Taylor trimming down and Campbell stepping up.

Good Vernon Davis pick, that should have been included in the article. I say give Mario Williams another year for his "true" breakout season. One year for Okoye, Williams, and Ryans that could possibly form a very nice, very young defense. Clayton should do well as long as McNair stays healthy, if Boller is in theres no way he's going over the 1k mark.

It's been hinted that he will be the primary back, but I want to see it first. I also am not sure about his durability. Though, I cannot say I would surprised at all if he had a great year.

Clayton actually does really well when Boller is in the game. They have an excellent connection. His statistics with Boller starting:


1 for 42
5 for 101 and two touchdowns
3 for 11
5 for 90 and one touchdown
2 for 24
7 for 105 and one touchdown
7 for 86


That isn't that bad, considering that Boller isn't that good.

I'm really riding the JP Losman bandwagon this year. From what I saw from Losman down the stretch last year made me believe that this is going to be a Pro Bowl caliber year for him. In fact, I expect the Buffalo Bills offense to be the breakout unit of the entire season, as they've put many pieces in place for it to be a dominant unit. They have a solid offensive line, anchored by another uprising star in tackle Jason Peters. They've added a more versatile running back in the draft in Marshawn Lynch. Add in that they have IMO a top five receiver in Lee Evans (who Losman has an excellent rapport with), you have the makings of a unit that could dominate this year. Expect Steve Fairchild to be far, far more aggressive this season, with Losman putting up big numbers.

I'm also dying to see what Al Saunders can unleash with Santana Moss, Clinton Portis, Ladell Betts, and Chris Cooley now that Campbell has another year under his belt.

It's going to be a very interesting NFL season. There iis an amazing amount of young talent in the league right now.

So you can talk about this article or your predictions for break out players.

You've seen Gardocki Kick against you twice last year.. about 6 kicks per game.. to say that this kid might take the league by storm punting wise? He's the starter and he's probably going to give us a huge amount of "Hidden Yardage". I think he'll break out.

Nice list shiver.

One thing, id take Boley off because I think he had a breakout year last year, the only problem is no-one noticed it. As for now I'd rate him as an under-rated star as oppossed to a guy poised for his breakout year, IMO he is the best player on our defense bar none. For non falcon fans, think Julian Peterson as a very very good comparison . Stats wise he was right up there last year, and performed better than alot of bigger name players on the feild too. Hopefully this year he continues to improve and finally gets some props.

Id put Braylon Edwards on there in his place.

Finally, damn that punter light that guy up big time!

Frddy Keiaho has been mentioned. Isee a big year for him, and the Colts always seem to be able to produce pretty good linebackers. I was on the JP Losman bandwagon before this past year, and I'm still on it. He's going to become a heck of a player. Ryan Fowler will have a great year if he wins the MLB job in Tennessee. I also see Manny Lawson becoming the focal point of the SF defense. Jerious Norwood will become a great RB because I think we all know that Dunn is getting very close to being done with.

07-18-2007, 11:58 PM
i think this is Antrel Rolle's breakout. Hes got some better talent around him..new scheme that will attack the QB more and i think he'll step up and be consistent and make plays.

i also think DeAngelo Hall wakes up and plays to the hype he had 2 years ago

QB: Carr ..yes. Delhomme will get hurt or play poor..Carr gets in and takes over.

RB: Henry..hes with Broncos offense..what more do i say?

WR: Evans. 1 of the most underrated players in the league. He'll get some recognition and be top 3 in league receiving

TE: Graham. Hes going to be in an offense that will give him opportunities. Underrated receiver, great blocker. Watch out

too tired to to Defense. off to bed.

QB: Alex Smith, JP Losman, Jason Campbell and David Carr. Possibly Charlie Frye.
HB: DeAngelo Williams, Cedric Benson, Caddilac Williams, if he gets good blocking. Homer Pick: Vernand Morency
WR: Vincent Jackson, Greg Jennings, Reggie Williams, and Braylon Edwards.
TE: Vernon Davis
OL: Daryn Colledge, Jason Spitz, and Jason Peters.
DL: Mario Williams and Mark Anderson
LB: DJ Williams and Freddie Keiaho (I'll jump on the bandwagon)
DB: Nick Collins

A few homer picks, but all pretty realistic

Vincent Jackson is the most overhyped player this year and has done squat to earn his high ranking. I have seen fantasy rankings with him above guys like Hines Ward. That is insane.

I hope he is a complete failure. I'm sick of these guys who get so overhyped even though they have proven nothing.

http://www.techsideline.com/football/2005/pics/sandidge2005_02_small.jpg

I see no reason why Sandidge would breakout. The Chiefs picked him up for a short time last year and with how thin our depth was at DT and considering we still have no proven stars if we thought he was going to be any good I would think we would have kept him around. Perhaps the Rams see something the Chiefs don't though.

Potential Buc Breakout Players:

Barrett Ruud, MLB - In his first season as starter, taking over for Shelton Quarles, he enters a position which is relatively important in Tampa's defense. Filling Shelton's shoes is no easy task but I think Ruud is up to it.

Alex Smith, TE - If Gruden involves him in the game on a more frequent level we could see a guy getting 50-60 catches with 4-5 TD's.

Cadillac Williams, RB - I know he had a good rookie campaign, but last year he suffered with injuries, a poor O-Line and being targeted by opposing defenses due to a lack of a passing game. This is his chance to prove doubters wrong.

Jerious Norwood will breakout and start over Warrick Dunn.

Im just saying Troy Williamson because of this little eye thing. Maybe it helped him out and now he can actually see the ball to catch it instead letting bounce of his shoulder pads.

I would not be suprised at all b/c he has the speed and Tavaris has the arm to get it to him. If they can figure out their timing and develop some chemsitry they could be the duo the Vikings need in the passing game.

JP Losman bandwagon, you say?
Quite the turnaround from last year. You're all sheep!

I'll toss Angelo Crowell's name into the mix. Some people see him already but he's been out there about the same amount as Peters has and has accomplished less, so if one's name is out there than the other should be as well. The '05 class - Roscoe and Keverett - could be interesting options but not on the same scale.

Steelers possible breakout Players:

Santonio Holmes:
Nearly had 1000+ Yards with 2 TD's with only 4 starts. I'm lookign for a 1000-1200+ Yard season with 5-7TD's

Heath Miller:
Adding Spaeth finally gives us a blocking TE to allow Heath to get some balls thrown his way.

Brett Keisel:

In his first season taking over for Kimo Von Oelhoffen he did pretty good. I'm in no way saying he's as good as Richard Seymour, but they had very comparable stats. I think with another season under his belt, plus the fact he's athletic enough to play OLB (And the fact that he's being used as a Key Cog) We should be pretty set.

Anthony Smith:

Smith Managed only 4 starts, but grabbed 2 INT's, 6 passes defended, 18 tackles.. The #5 JACKED UP! of the year... and he got bigger, stronger and faster this offseason.. he's waiting to breakout.




I'd add Larry Foote, but I don't think he'll ever be recognized as "Great" or "Breakout" He's a blue-collar 100+Tackle, 3-4 Sack, 1-2 INT, 2 FF a season guy that won't get much credit.

My top-10 breakout players:


10. (homer alert) Michael Boley - With all I've been through, I should get to brag about what little is going right with my team. Michael Boley will be a stud. He has everything you look for in one of those late round gems, talent that can be molded. Every once in a while those types pan out. Boley excels because of his versatility. He is a 6'3" 236-lbs athlete who can play Safety, SLB and RE. In fact, he did so last year due to injuries. He's strong, fast and can fly. Best of all is he's shown a great work ethic and has been molded by Keith Brooking to turn his talent into on the field productivity. Last year he showed a nose for the ball, being involved with three sacks, two interceptions, one forced fumble and three fumble recoveries.

He can play WLB also, which was his projected position coming out of college (he was under 230, some expected a move to SS).
