Which under-performing rookie from last season will make a big impact this year?

I'll go with Marcedes Lewis.

DAMNIT SHIVER! You took the words RIGHT out of my mouth. Those were my guys too...Great...now when they do explode, everyone on FF is gonna give props to you, only cause you posted before me :(

But other than that...I think if Arizona can shore up their OL, I think Leinart will do very very well.

Homer in me says Jerious Norwood will shine with more carries, and Jimmy Williams will do a good job when he actually plays, whether it be CB or S.

Kelly Jennings, CB, Seahawks

Wow a lot of Vernon Davis. I think he is going to be extremely average his whole career.

My bet on a breakout would be Bunkley and Maroney will absolutely shine even more with the expanded role he most likely will be getting. Also Rocky McIntosh is the Skins brain trust is smart enough to get him on the field more.

bigmac076
03-07-2007, 10:44 AM
i'd say Chad Greenway

toonsterwu
03-07-2007, 10:48 AM
Some "breakout" guesses (that is, guys that take big steps forward, obviously, a subjective measure):

Chad Greenway - Heck ... anything's a breakout for him considering he didn't play. But he's going to play in a scheme that should be an excellent fit for his skillset, and I could see a huge year coming from him as long as he picks things up.

John McCargo - I think that the overall DT talent, as of now, is very mediocre in Buffalo, with solid, but low-ceiling talent like Kyle Williams, or mediocre veterans like Larry Tripplet. McCargo will get every chance to prove himself, and with Aaron Schobel on the line, McCargo could get some very positive situations for himself.

Marcedes Lewis - Koetter knows how to utilize TE's, and with a WR set that's still more potential than production, Marcedes could become the strong security blanket for Leftwich.

DeAngelo Williams - It's looking like he'll be the guy, and a 1200+ rushing yards season is very possible.

Jimmy Williams - I'm not a big fan of him ... but I do like Mike Zimmer as a DC, and there's no doubt Jimmy has talent. Wherever he is used, he could be come critical, especially if he's the 2nd corner, as teams will challenge him moreso than DeAngelo.

Lendale White - by default. He'll get the totes ... and should be able to put up decent production if he comes in shape. A 1000 yard season is certainly in reach.

Greg Jennings - I guess this might be a reach, as he had a quality rookie year. But he certainly hit a wall, and with a full pro offseason, he might be more ready. Could a 1000 yard season be in store? Potentially.

Andrew Whitworth - Will get the full time nod inside this year, and he's a smart OL guy who is extremely tough and should be good for the Bengals.

Demetrius Williams - His big play ability may start to eat away from Derrick Mason's playing time ... could certainly see him doubling his output.

Brandon Marshall - Will continue to chip away at Rod Smith's time, and may take the number 2 job at some point. I could see him doubling his output.

Ray Edwards - If Erasmus James isn't ready, Edwards could see more time. Showed some flashes, and if he could double his sack numbers, that'd be a big jump. Certainly always had talent ... just some off-field issues.

Kedric Golston - Depends on what happens this draft, but if they don't draft a DT, Golston will get a lot of work and could establish himself as a decent-solid starter inside.

Cortland Finnegan - Strong rookie season, and depending on what happens, wouldn't surprise me if he ends up as a starting corner for them.

Mark Setterstrom - Could end up playing a key role up front for them.
Certainly other names possible.

Bohleive
03-07-2007, 10:48 AM
I'll say both of the 9ers guys Lawson and Davis. DeAngelo Williams of the Panthers.
For the Ravens, I think Ngata is going to explode next season, his ability to collapse the pocket and rush the passer really came on towards the end of last season.

HawkeyeFan
03-07-2007, 10:50 AM

I have to agree because 1. I'm a Rams Fan, and 2. When he came in and started at the end of the year was when Jackson had that great run torwards the end of the season. He'll be starting next year.

03-07-2007, 10:53 AM
I really hope Greenway has a breakout year. He could, if Childress lets him start. I think Davis will have a great year. Heck, I thought he was going to have a fantastic season last year, and I drafted him in the fourth round of my FF draft.

I think it's a tad early for that projection, I don't think he's that good. However I certainly have healthy respect for what he can do after seeing McNair nearly giftwrap a few to him. He needs work on his hands though; how many easy picks did he drop vs. the Ravens this year?

BLACKnGOLD
03-07-2007, 11:35 AM
Santonio Holmes- legal matters behind him, and once he stopped fumbling his confidence in all parts of his game exploded and he really started to flourish. He became a legit #2 receiver in the last few games of the year, and his huge run after the catch against the Bengals in overtime to spoil there season really shows why the Steelers took him #1, he has Steve Smith potential.

Vernon Davis- Alex Smith's main weakness so far seems to be finding receivers in the end zone, however when Davis plays he has no problem trusting him there.

Jay Cutler- he improved much more rapidly then people realize, he looked so shaky in his first start and ended the season looking like an NFL starter. He, throwing to Marshall and Walker, is going to have a huge year.

03-07-2007, 12:34 PM
I think Vernon could end up being real good ... but he'll need to learn how to play the position first. Ben Watson is oft used as a comparable to him on physical abilities, and I think a Ben Watson timeline in regards to development may be fair. Who knows, though. Vernon could have a great year, but I'm just not expecting it yet, especially since the Niners lacks the weapons to draw coverage away from him, and they are going to be play off of Frank Gore and the run game.

The Unseen

Well, he was, and would be coming into the season. Problem is, he just recently had surgery on a torn labrum. Those never go well, the most notable Jags' victim being Tony Boselli.

With Kyle Brady gone and Wrighster iffy for the year, the stars are aligning for Marcedes to prove himself.

Being an enormous homer, I've got to second Leonard Pope. Although he started last year, he barely touched the ball, because apparently Denny Green has some sort of personal vandetta against using a TE. Whiz is a big TE, and expect him to focus heavily on Pope this year.

draftguru151
03-07-2007, 02:28 PM
Jay Cutler is gonna have a sick year. Mario Williams is gonna show why he was the #1 overall pick. Cromartie should have a big year as well. I'm hoping Jason Allen steps up next year but I have low expectations for him.

Early yes, I was being bold for sure.

His hands are terrible at this point, to be honest that's the only part where he's really lacking. He was easily our best CB last year and our second best DB. His cover skills are just impressive, he was like 6th in pass deflections despite limited time (in part to the fact he can't pick off anyone).

If our DB coach could turn Tory James into a INT machine I don't see why JJ won't have the same fate. I was just extremely impressed with him from early on last year. Truth is he didn't get thrown at a lot towards the end of the year.

From what I read Davis really came on as a blocker as the season progressed. I'd take Davis every day over Greg Olsen. I love Olsen but his potential is nowhere near Davis'. That was a pretty ignorant statement saying what potential. He didn't go #6 overall in a strong class because he ran a 4.38.

Shiver
03-07-2007, 06:39 PM
Davis had a nice season as a blocker. The coaches fixed his technique. I saw how much he progressed on ESPN's "Welcome to the NFL Rookie." He also finished out the season very well. He was getting 3-4 catches per game, and even had three games of 20+ YPC average.

Nice, a Finnegan mention. I might give some positive rep for that, lol. Kid is fast as blazes, and even though he's not very big, he's aggressive and a great tackler. He played well in the nickel, and even started one game on the outside and played great. The Eagles tested him about 2-3 times deep in that game, and he didn't give up anything.

He had a chance at 10 before the combine. TE's with his physical capabilities, not only of speed, but power, are rare. Did he shoot up because he dominated the combine? Sure, but doesn't that mean he has more potential and actually production? Kind of contradicting yourself now.

You know, I couldn't come up with good Bengals examples despite my sig giving me a massive hint.

Ahmad Brooks should bust out, he will be a starter and have all preseason to get used to the speed of the game and offense (unlike last year). He'll be at SLB if Odell comes back or MLB if he doesn't. I really expect him to be a force (not that I'm biased or anything).

03-08-2007, 11:40 AM
Here we go...

Offense...
Matt Leinart - He looked good, if they can improve that O-Line at all he is set for a big season.
Leonard Pope - The other big reason Leinart will improve, Pope should give them a lot from the TE position.
Jay Cutler - Has weapons, has skill and has an offseason behind him. Should be a good one.
DeAngelo Williams - Is the man, should blow up and be exciting as all hell.
Santonio Holmes - Should improve the most of everyone. Has the ability to be a legit #1 reciever.
D'Brickashaw Ferguson - Will continue to mature and whilst he wont just blow up(given how good he already is) he will be a top 5 LT by seasons end.
Nick Mangold - Same as Brick only at C.
Marcus McNeil - Not quite as good as Brick but will be a monster and the go to guy on a very good line.
Chad Jackson - Tough one to call, if he can participate in the whole camp and preseason I think he can be their starter, depends a lot on what Gaffney does in camp also though because he may very well blow up next year.
Joseph Addai - Will be even better. Again, not a blow up, but a noticeable improvement here.
Brodie Croyle - This one depends on Green, if he goes, Croyle gets an excellent chance.

Defense
Michael Huff - Will improve a lot. Which is scary considering he was pretty good already.
Mario Williams - Needs to get it next year or he becomes a franchise ruining pick.
Haloti Ngata - The man is a monster.
Chad Greenway - If he can get and stay healthy. Was unlucky last year.
Kamerion Wimbley - Will improve out of sight.
Devin Hester - Will show something other than bigtime ST ability.
AJ Hawk - Scary good already, will be amongst the elite by seasons end.
Tye Hill - Will improve further.
Manny Lawson - Will gain the consistency he lacked last year and start to make the big plays more often.
Jonathon Joseph - Will get caught in possession of something or a DUI... Thats improvement for a Bengal right?
Roman Harper - Will win back his starting job and make an impact.
Frostee Rucker - Can be an impact guy. I dont even have to make the whole "if he can stay out of trouble" argument right?

yourfavestoner
03-08-2007, 01:31 PM
I don't think D'Brickashaw will ever be a top five left tackle. He just doesn't have the build to keep weight on, and that leads to him getting pushed around a lot. I think he'll be a servicable starter for a long time, but I don't ever see him becoming "elite."

03-08-2007, 04:31 PM

Devin Hester - because the Bears will use him on offense next year.

derza222
03-08-2007, 05:04 PM
I think D'Brick will always be a good LT because the primary job of a LT is to protect the QB's blind side, but he will never be a great LT because he'll never be an elite road grader type in the run game and will continue to have trouble with the bull rush unless he puts on some weight, he'll be good for awhile though. I look for Joseph to become one of the better players on the Cincy D and move to be the #1 corner, and Ahmad Brooks will have a good season IMO. A guy who could make an impact this year but won't ever have the stats is Jason Pociask of the New York Jets, he was injured last year but could really help the Jets' run game out as a blocker if he gets PT.

Homer Picks

Mike Huff: Played real well but his impact didn't show up much on the stat sheet (except for shutting down opposing TE's). He will ball hawk more as he becomes more comfortable.

Thomas Howard: Will become more of a threat in the pass coverage and blitz game as he learns under Rob Ryan.

The Rest

Bunkley: Really liked this guy coming out and I think he's going to be a star

Vernon: As much as I hate to say this, as soon as he learns his assignments (heard he struggled with that last year) and develops a connection with Alex he is going to be a Pro Bowler for years.

Cutler/Leinert: They are both going to be studs. I'm pissed we have to see Cutler 2x a year forever.

Mathias Kiwanuka - Didn't exactly "underperform", but he was not a starter until our DEs got injured. He may move to SLB due to his natural athleticism and make a big impact

Sinorice Moss - Injured much of last year. Look for him to come in and become the gamebreaker we expected. Whether it be as our slot guy or return man.

I think the Chargers are moving Jammer to one of the safety spots.

My list is Ashton Youboty, Mario Williams, and Marcedes.

I don't know if you heard that from somewhere or are just speculating about Jammer, but either way you are wrong. He has become a very very good CB in the league, he is our #1 CB and he will be for the next 4-5 years unless Cromartie goes ballistic, which he might.

As of right now Marcus Mcneill is better than Brick. He started all year for us and didn't just play well but at many times really dominated. Marcus Mcneill was like the 3rd place vote getter for rookie of the year. He is GOOD.

I'm hoping if the Bucs don't nab Calvin Johnson, Maurice Stovall really develops as a red zone target and catches over 40 balls.

All this talk about the Chargers moving Jammer to Safety is absurd. It stems from one season he played at Texas as a safety. He has been in the NFL for a while now and has finally become on the top CBs in the game (Top 10 IMHO). Why would SD now switch his position when he is finally hitting his prime as a CB?

That being said, I think Cromartie will suprise next year. He showed flashes of brilliance, as well as flashes of stupidity (as to be expected from a rookie corner). I see him putting Florence into his more natural nickel back position by week 4.

Seriously- Dusty D and Jamar Williams. I think Jamar is gonna take over for Briggs (with a medium sized drop in production) and Dusty D is gonna become a staple of our rotation

Amen. Hey here's a name that hasn't been thrown out yet: Bernard Pollard. He'll win a spot and crack some people this season.


Other than that I have to second Cromartie. His physical abilities are absolutely insane. Has anybody else seen that pic of him at training camp leaping over the moon to intercept the ball?

here it is, not sure how to post pics

As a Panther fan, I think Jeff King might come out and surprise people in 2007. I think he's got the tools, and the opertunity (with all of our other TEs being bad recievers and Mangum retiring) to make an impact. Don't look for 70 catches, 800 yards and 8 TDs, but I think 35/350-400/3TDs is possible.

I also think Deangelo Williams will bust it out this year. The game will slow down and he will speed up! =)

I would like to say Vernon Davis on offense and Mario Williams on defense. I wannted to see Vernon light up the 49ers offense but he got injured so I'll be looking forward to seeing him put up some real numbers.

Mario Williams is my guy on defense he was on a horrible defense and he never got any help. He's gotten off to a small start, but he'll bounce back and have a 10+ sack season next year.

Honestly, why would you decide where to put a player based on their name?
