Greg Jennings! kind of a homer pick he already had a pretty good rookie season but maybe this year he will get close or break 1000 yards recieving.

Look for Jeff Webb in Kansas City. If we can get any kind of quarterback play this year I look for this guy to break out as he is expected to start this season. This guy has great size and speed though his hands are a bit questionable. Him and Bowe are going to be a nice combo in the near future for KC.

On the Chargers....Cromartie takes over the starting job, if not on opening day by week 4 and does well...

As for the NFL Cutler could do really well, but he also did pretty good last year too. I'm going to say Maroney will do really well this year in New England, and I wouldn't be suprised if Santonio Holmes did really well either...Quietly put up over 800 yards last year.

D'Qwell Jackson or Leon Williams ILBers for the Browns. D'Qwell Jackson got hurt last year (I know...unbelievable...a Browns player getting hurt?) and Leon Williams made big plays coming in for him. Both should get more playing time this year.

Claude Wroten. Without marijuana charges before the draft would have been First Rounder, Rams picked him in the 3rd. Didn't get many tackles/sacks last year but reports are saying he showed up to mini camp in Great Shape, and is hungry to be recognized.

Rams also expect alot out of him this season.

Manning won't start next year, or well at least on paper he won't. Depends on if Brown can stay healthy at FS.

I think Dusty will do very well next season but I don't expect a "breakout year" from him.

Kelvin Hayden should be starting for us at CB this year, i expect him to make some big plays for us and lay some big hits. A lot of you don't know who Freddie Keiaho is, but he's taking over for the departed Cato June at WLB. Keiaho hits and hits very hard, i don't know that he will be as good in coverage as June was, but he's a way better tackler.

I wish I could say there is someone from the Jets... but our top rookies started and played well, so a "breakout" isn't really possible. Brad Smith could go on a rampage I suppose... but I don't see that. And Schlegel/Eric Smith aren't going to see much PT.

Ahmad Brooks ftw

YES!

I mean the guys first game he had 11 tackles after practicing at MLB for that one week (had been practicing at SLB).

He didn't join the team till training camp because of the supp draft and they're saying he's really put in the time in the tape room this offseason. The talent is there, he was great in pursuit of RB's last year. You could just tell he was a little lost in pass coverage due to his lack of understanding of the system.

He will start at either MLB or SLB and will be one of the biggest impact 2nd year guys.

Johnathan Joseph could make the pro bowl if he could learn how to catch, that's an enormous if. I'm not complaining though.

Jennings had a bad ankle sprain and never fully recovered. he kept coming back too soon and re-injuring it. had he not been injured, he was a lock for 1000 yards. Contrary to what the idiot Mel Kiper said and his 'Jennings hit the rookie wall.' What a moron. Does he even pay attention?

If Lendale White can get his head on straight before the start of the season i believe he could have a good year at running back for the titans. He should be the starter and will be running behind a good line, so he has the right tools around him to have a "breakout"year.

I feel Leinart and Cutler will have very good years, Vernon Davis could be the go to guy in San Fran, and if Vince Young avoids the curse he should have the Titans in a good position in the standings. See not one reference to a Raven.

Shiver
05-01-2007, 06:03 PM
Vernon Davis' last five games of the year, when he got healthy;

14 catches
217 yards
15.5 YPC
2 Touchdowns

Alex Smith even missed him wide open, for a 'what would've been' a long TD. Rookie Tight Ends have a history of slow rookie seasons, followed by exponential improvement in their sophomore season. Tony Gonzalez, Todd Heap, Jason Witten, Alge Crumpler, Antonio Gates, Shannon Sharpe, just for a few examples. Also, San Francisco has added just enough receiver help to open up defenses, while ceding to Vernon Davis as the primary option. Alex Smith will only improve his accuracy.

I am expecting 800 yards, 6-8 touchdowns for Vernon Davis this year.

I'm not entirely sure I agree. Davis managed to post some decent number towards the end of last year, but often times he looked completely lost in the passing game. He's more than a bit stiff in his movements, his route running needs a lot of work, and he is far from natural catching the ball.

He seems like a remarkably coachable kid, so I'm not exactly worried, but I think he has huge strides to make in the passing game.

As my required homer pick, I think Huff is going to impress some people next year. If the run defense can force teams to throw the ball more, Huff is bound to get some more shots at picks than he did last year. I don't think I've ever seen a young safety be more impressive in man coverage than Huff was last year though.

Shiver
05-02-2007, 02:10 AM
Yeah, Davis looked bad in his first couple of games. He showed improvement at the end of the year. I think another year under his belt will cure any slight hiccups in his game. As I mentioned, it is well known that rookie Tight Ends struggle as rookies. Even the great ones.

For the Colts:

Breakout players:

Kelvin Hayden (CB)

Freddie Keiaho (OLB)
Tyjuan Hagler (OLB)
DeDe Dorsey (RB)

Rookies that should start/contribute:

Tony Ugoh (OT/OG)
Anthony Gonzalez (WR)
Quinn Pitcock (DT)

There will be a battle for the spot of nickle CB between 2nd year pro Tim Jennings and rookies Daymeion Hughes and Michael Coe. Jennings probably has the upper hand at this point.

05-05-2007, 08:53 AM
Mario Williams is going to make a lot of people shut their mouths.

I love the fact that literally every chance ESPN or any one else talking about the draft on TV or on paper they trash Mario Williams. ESPN redid last draft, Mario wasn't in the top 10. I wonder what people are going to say when he plays well next season.

As for the breakout guys, I think Antonio Cromartie and Manny Lawson are going to be great next year.

Shiver, why don't/didn't you like Lawson last year. Was it just because everyone loved him after the combine, or was it actual on the field stuff? It's not like he did nothing on the field his senior year, he was the defensive MVP of that team. Was a sack artist and a smart player. The biggest question about him was coverage, and he played in a 4-3 last year at OLB and did well in coverage. I don't see what's not to like about him.

Addict
05-05-2007, 09:18 AM
Cutler will do well, Leinart will improve (since his line got stronger), Williams will produce better (since Okoye will take some pressure off him), Crommartie and Tye Hill will play better at corner.

I expect Vince Young to do worse than last year, since he lost his main target in Drew Bennett and there really isn't anyone to take his place.

Space Ghost
05-05-2007, 09:22 AM
I'd like to see Keith Ellison break out this year for the Bills so that our linebackers are set for the next few years with him, Crowell and Posluszny.

My pick is definitely going to be Leon Williams if he wins the starting spot over D'Qwell Jackson in TC. I really wish that Jackson gets traded to a team that can utilize his talent more effectively, he shouldn't be a 34 inside linebacker.

My second pick would be either Demetrius Williams or Thomas Howard probably. If the Ravens get some consistent play from the quarterback position and Mason doesn't play as much I think Williams could have a huge season for the Ravens. Thomas Howard has been my favourite linebacker since I watched him in a couple UTEP games as a senior and I still think he will be better than Chad Greenway and Bobby Carpenter. He also is in a great situation being on a team with a fantastic defense. I think he will breakout and be at least a strong starter for the Raiders.

I expect Vince Young to do worse than last year, since he lost his main target in Drew Bennett and there really isn't anyone to take his place.

The same Drew Bennett who caught 1 TD and 168 yards in the the 6 game winning streak last season?

Drew dropped a fair few key passes too. For a current Titans WR not to at least match his production while playing with Vince, they would all have to suck pretty badly - which is entirely possible, but more a reflection on them and not the void Drew left. The fact he was the main target was probably due to health of the other targets more than anything - 235 of his 737 yards and 1 of his 3 TD's came before VY even started, where as Brandon Jones had 18 yards before VY started and finished with 384 and got 4 TD's with VY, and he wasn't entirely healthy.

Obviously being a rookie QB limited the passing stats but Bennett was far from a dependable main target - I feel his production can more or less be replicated with what's on the roster, it was really more a loss of depth than starter quality.

05-05-2007, 12:52 PM
Like a couple of people said, Mario Williams. He struggled through his first couple of games and they kept moving him around on the D-Line. Then he had to play the rest of the season with a foot injury. He should have a really good year this season.

I didn't like him because the majority of people thought he was superior to Kamerion Wimbley, whom I loved, only because of his workouts. Wimbley was a more dynamic pass rusher in college, and was much more so in his rookie season. It wasn't because I didn't like him. I just thought he was overrated.

He will be in Hawaii in February '08. Mark it down.

I would hope I had(ve) him pegged as a HOFer.

Roman Harper.

He was playing lights out and was a huge leader in our secondary until his season ending injury.

Nice homer pick, sir. I agree. :) Besides Kellen Winslow owning him in his first pro game, he played very nicely for us and did a fantastic job against Alge Crumpler in the first game against the Falcons.

Who do you think has a bettere chanc of succeding from his first year, between Meachem and Davis?

If you're referring to Craig Davis, I'm going to go with Meachem and homerish isn't even a reason. Simply because I think Meachem has a chance of being starter than Davis in their rookie seasons... Meachem has the chance to start opposite of Colston, Davis will have to beat out Vincent Jackson and Eric Parker.

DeAngelo Williams. Love this guy and I think he'll emerge from his situation and have a nice breakout year.

Agreed. He recently stated that the new Panthers' offense is identical to the offense he was a part of in Memphis.

Im excited about the offense altogether because its identical to the offense we ran in Memphis, Williams said. We threw a lot of screen passes to the running backs and we ran the outside and inside zone plays. We did the one-back power, things like that. Its just like the offense at Memphis, but with some different terminology.

This is no homer pick. Harper only played in 5 games last season and is a very good player. Barring injury, he will have much better stats, and you can call that a breakout season after comparing the stat difference in both years. Play on the field matters more than stats, but you know what I mean.

I agree with people on DeAngelo Williams. I loved him as a prospect last year and now with more touches will break out.

I think that Antrel Rolle is gonna have a big season with around 6-7 Int's he was always around the ball last year it seemed and had 10 pd's.

First I hope that Harper just comes back 110% healthy.

Chad Greenway, I really liked him coming out of college, and since this is his first season, we'll see what he's capable of.

Last I heard, he was around %90 and that was at least a Month ago.
