Yea thats a good one.

Jammal Anderson should do well in Atlanta especially with the new defensive minded HC.

For the Hawks I think Josh Wilson could take Kelly Jennings starting spot and thrive.

Calvin Johnson should be a lot better, with less of a spread offense b/c of Martz leaving he'll play as Kitna's #2, which should allow him to do a lot better.

Mike Smith and the amazing DL coach he brought in (Ray Henderson?) are good. But turning Jamaal Anderson to even a servicable pass rusher would be a huge accomplishment.

I would like to see him do well. But do you guys think they will let him take over for D.Hall or will he stay on the second reciever?

TimD
03-29-2008, 03:17 PM
Chansi Stuckey. According to the Jets staff he looked great before he got hurt. If we don't draft a receiver he'll make a push to play the slot, if we do then he'll be the 4th-5th receiver.

He provided leadership and showed promise, you can hardly expect a rookie QB to do much more than that.

Considering the #1 overall pick did well worse.

If he improves his ball skills he could be very good. Last year they played right and left cornerback positions, they did not line up on specific positions. This year it could be different, we could do a wide field cornerback and a shortfield cornerback, a left and right like last year, or a man lock scheme. So I'm not sure. Maybe a Jacksonville fan would know.

Troy Smith if the pieces fall kindly. Kevin Boss perhaps. Craig Davis, maybe Drew Stanton, and finally Stewart Bradley.

BamaFalcon59
03-29-2008, 04:55 PM
If Keith Brooking is released, which I hope he is despite his contributions to the team, I really like Stephen Nicholas at weakside linebacker. Ballhawk who can blitz and cover.

Justin Blalock should be much better.

Chris Houston if he improves his ball skills. But word is that the new regime in Atlanta likes our sixth round cornerback from last year a lot as well, him being David Irons, who would have likely been a third round pick had he not had so many injury concerns.

Laurent Robinson had a very good rookie year, and if he can pass Michael Jenkins or Joe Horn on the depth chart his numbers should improve.

It's quite mind-boggling how Detroit could have Gaines Adams and 2 (2008) 2nd rounders right now instead of Johnson. As good as he is, the Lions don't need him like they need an edge rusher, an inside backer and a CB. Your loss Matt Millen....

Dude, you're preaching to the choir. We arguably had a need at every single position last season other than WR, DT, and WLB. So what does Millen do, he takes a WR because he is the "best player available." Someone needs to tell him that it is ok to take the "second best player available" if your team has a major hole there. I really wanted Joe Thomas. We could've put him at LT and moved Backus to RT, thus improving the OL in two spots. You don't know how painful it was to see Thomas have a Pro Bowl season. Hell, like you said we could've traded down to get Gaines Adams and I would've been happy. Millen tried too hard to make the fans happy on Draft Day by making a "sexy" pick. He can't pass up QB's, RB's, and WR's. If there wasn't an immense pressure from Marinelli to pick Ernie Sims, it wouldn't have surprised me if he took Matt Leinart two years ago.

Anthony Spencer- I see him getting more playing time this year.

My team: I'll go with LT Tony Ugoh. The guy could be a Pro Bowler if he can stay injury free, he was that good at times last season. I would say Gonzalez, but I think the 2nd half of last season was his coming out party, especially the playoff game. He definitely looked better last year than Reggie did in his rookie season, which has me excited for what's to come out of him.

Elsewhere: LB Anthony Spencer is my pick, partially because I'm being a homer and Spencer hails from Purdue, but I really think Spencer could give the Cowboys an excellent rushbacker to put across from DeMarcus Ware.

As for people saying Dwayne Bowe and David Harris, if we're picking people that established themselves pretty well in their rookie campaigns, then I'll change my picks for other teams to Adrian Peterson and Patrick Willis.

People are saying that Gaines Adams is goin to boom like a beast next season. After that I am going with either Calvin Johnson or Poszluzny. The Bills finished solid with a nothing team and now that they have a monster DT, Puz is going to boom. Calvin Johnson is simply nuff said I don't need to explain myself.

skinzzfan25
03-30-2008, 10:38 AM
I think Landry was really coming on at FS. His success depends on how Blatche wants to use him, but under Williams he was looking like a top flight safety.

I'm predicting 6 INTs 2 FF and 55 tackles.

I can not see him only having 55 tackles. He had almost 100 last year. The move to FS might take away some, but it should be at least 80.

You took mine. Nice call. I was a huge Woodley fan last year coming out of Michigan and was thrilled when the Steelers drafted him.

Well, I'll go with Sidney Rice WR Minnesota or Greg Olsen TE Chicago. If either of those two get a QB worth a darn I see them making Pro Bowls.

A major difference between guys like Harris and Willis is that Willis started from week one whereas Harris only started nine games last season. Even though Harris is pretty well established, he could take a bit of a statistical jump next season with more starts under his belt (and an actual nose tackle). That said, depending on who the Jets add in the draft he could have more talent around him and might not end up racking up so many tackles and sacks. But still, he's in position to potentially a better year statistically with more starts and even maybe play a little better if Jenkins adjusts well to the 3-4. You're right in saying that he's established, but he is in position to make a jump stat-wise if that's what people are thinking.

As for the thread, I like Chinny Ndukwe for the Bengals (hope I spelled that right) and possibly Marvin White as well. If one of them starts they should do well. Jacoby Jones is another guy I like. Sydney Rice, Stewart Bradley, Paul Poz, and Eric Wright could make some noise too.

A Perfect Score
03-30-2008, 11:46 AM
look for antwan barnes to have a big year in baltimore...im predictiing 7+ sacks from him...on offense, i expect ben grubbs to firmly establish himself as a top tier guard in the league. Also, yamon figurs could have a really big year returning kicks. On other teams...

chris houston should have a big year, i was a huge fan on draft day.

a guy i really like is jason hill in SF. it might not be this year, but sometime in the near future, i see him succeeding in martz's offense. Thats providing Alex Smith and that entire team pull their act together.

03-30-2008, 12:21 PM
I love how alot of the picks are guys that have pretty much already broken out.

David Harris, Dwayne Bowe, Tony Ugoh, LaRon Landry, and some others mentioned already had really good years last year. Now if you say you expect them a progress and have better year's next year then I agree but they aren't gonna break out as they are already established as good up and coming players.

Guys that will break out are like Derrick Anderson types. Guys that had some talent but never got the opportunity. Or like the OP said, a Mario Williams. A guy that did very little his rookie season but blew up the next year.

Ill go with Stewart Bradley. And for my homer pick, I'll say Ted Ginn, Jr.

There is no guarantee that Timmons will be starting next year. Who knows if he has the playbook down. If he can beat out Larry Foote for the starting job. Lamar Woodley is a lock to start because we have no one else to play that spot. We still have Larry Foote.....so yea.

I think Gaines will be just like Mario, both had slow starts in his rookie year then began to show some promise in the 2nd half of the season. I expect him to have a season comparable to Mario last year with 10+ sacks. Arron Sears should also continue to improve. If Black gets some more playing time he could impress, but I think he'll have to wait another year until Brooks retires.

I'm going to homer pick it and say Zack Miller is going to have a good season in 2008. Russell will likely be iffy this year, but much of the success that he has will be because of his chemistry with Miller. I'm not saying Gates-like numbers, but close to 650 yards or more.

Probably not Hills year... I wish it was, but Sullivan and Nolan have been very reluctant about giving young wr's playing time. I really like him too, he was a freaking beast with the cougars and has plenty of speed, good size, and good mits.

I will say that Joe Staley will have a breakout year, if those big uglys can have breakout years. He is going back to the left side his natural position, which he is much better suited for with his athleticism. He was pretty good at RT last season and started every game despite how raw he was and the jump in competition. But I fully expect him to take his game to another level and hopefully be Martz's new Orlando Pace.

I think he already had a breakout year which is quite odd considering he didn't start until Week 8. If you subtract the stats he got in those first 7 games he's left with:

101 tackles, 5 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles

That is ridiculous. 9 games and he put up those numbers as a starter. Since our front 7 improved so he won't have to do ALL the work this what I think he'll get next year.

170 tackles, 4-8 sacks, then a few forced fumbles and maybe a pick.

Predecessor means to come before, I think you mean successor.

For the Panthers the only guy with a real chance is Charles Johnson at defensive end. He only played a handful of snaps season gone but could see a big increase in his playing time.

Nobody really for the Chiefs. Dwayne Bowe already brokeout and I expect him to build on his production from last year.

Some players that could have minor breakout seasons though are DT Tank Tyler and OT Herb Taylor. I am hoping Tyler can become a solid nose tackle for us and if we get a good undertackle like Ellis in the draft we could have one of the best lines in the league. Herb Taylor didn't play much last season but he did get in at left tackle against Detroit and he held his own which I think is pretty impressive for a rookie 6th round pick.

Chris Henry. He's a talented RB with an elite oline. If VY can take a step as a passer and the titans give him a top weapon there'll be more room for the titans' backs to carry the load and Henry is easily their most talented back and I see him taking a big step in his game.

I also see Beastmode having a much better season.

Robert Meachem. When your quarterback is Drew Brees, you are expected to produce. I look for Meachem to light it up in 08-09.

I'm going to homer pick it and say Zack Miller is going to have a good season in 2008. Russell will likely be iffy this year, but much of the success that he has will be because of his chemistry with Miller. I'm not saying Gates-like numbers, but close to 650 yards or more.

i agree he looked really good in the games i saw him in. he should have a nice year.

I'm only qualified to pick my own team, so I will...

Chinedum Ndukwe, 7th rounder from last year.

They gushed about him in camp last year, figured it was just typical hype but he was the biggest playmaker on our defense at times last year. Despite limited PT, he started the last two games and finished the season with 45 tackles, 3 INT's, 1 TD, 6 PD's and 2 sacks. Him and Marvin White should clean some clocks out there next season. Two hardest hitters we've had around here in forever.

Thats a good one. I remember almost every time the steelers played the bengals last year it seemed like the announcers were always saying this guys name after plays. He's a playmaker.

For the Giants, I have Aaron Ross and Jay Alford.

Id say Bradshaw already "broke out", and Boss is what he is. Smith also broke out in the playoffs.

For the rest of the league I have

Laron Landry
Paul Poz
Darrelle Revis
Jon Beason (on a national level)
Eric Weddle
Brandon Merriweather
Alan Branch
Calvin Johnson
Merril Olsen
Zach Miller


i'll leave it at that for now, don't want to get too carried away and name everybody and their mom.
