  • 2011 Breakout underclassmen

    This list is clearly not including incoming freshman yet, but here are a few names to watch for this up coming season from the JR and SOPH classes. These players are very talented and should become house hold draft names this up coming season.





    *Broderick Green RB Arkansas JR: Showed a few signs last year and with Smith now out of the way he should get a lot more carries and become the feature back of that offense. A very big and talented kid.



    *DC Jefferson TE Rutgers JR: Is extremely raw but watch out, he will be a house hold name at tight end after this season. Especially with the solid development of Savage at quarterback, he should see plenty of balls come his way.



    *Russell Shepard WR LSU SOPH: Should have a standout year, big time athlete and with the potential development of Jefferson at quarterback, Shepard could be a number one or two option at receiver, there no reason he should not be.



    *Larry Caper RB Michigan State SOPH: Had some injury issues last year, but is a fine running back potentially. Thick kid, hard to bring down and has nice patience in the hole, look for big things out of him this year.



    *Devon Kennard OLB USC SOPH: Showed flashes at the end of last season, very thick and strong linebacker with speed. Could be the best linebacker on the team by the end of this season.



    *Randall Cobb WR Kentucky JR: I think he has big time playmaking ability and potential, very athletic kid, strong and can make things happen. If they get him the ball more often he could have a great season for Kentucky.



    *Jonathan Martin OT Stanford SOPH: A very talented young lineman and will be one of the best. Very good athlete and he should be a constant starter this season. Will be one of many solid young offensive lineman for Stanford.



    *Mike Goodman Jr OT Boston College SOPH: Should be the next great Boston College lineman, has a wonderful frame, big thick kid and has good feet. Should develop into a star either this season or next.



    *Jason Ford RB Illinois JR: With the quarterback situation in question Illinois should run the ball more, and that would be with Ford. A big powerful back and showed great quickness for his size last year. Should continue to improve and get even better.



    *Doug Martin RB Boise State JR: Had a great season last year quietly but this year everyone will know who he is. Very good running back that can get the tough yardage, should be the feature back this season.



    *Michael Williams Alabama SOPH: A few tight ends left for Bama and Williams should step right in next year. Huge kid, and if anything he should become a dominating blocker, and if you get some out of him in the passing game it is just a plus.



    *Dejuan Miller WR Oklahoma JR: A huge and talented receiver, with the one two punch of him and Broyles he should have a great year and be really productive. No reason he cannot produce this up coming season for them.



    *Antoine Hicks WR TCU JR: Big time playmaker potentially and he should be even better this year. Has game breaking speed and should get many more opportunities this year for the Frogs.



    *Jarmon Fortson WR Florida State JR: No reason why he should not be the top receiver for Florida State. He is big and strong and has all the physical ability, and with Ponder's development as a quarterback he should become his number one target.



    *Johnson Bademosi CB Stanford JR: Very solid corner that should have a real fine season this year. Has good technique and that is good news for Stanford because they need help in the secondary.



    *Tyrone Duplessis RB La Tech SOPH: With Porter gone Duplessis should be the main option running the ball. A quick little back with a low center of gravity, he should have a real breakout year for them with his quickness and big play potential.

    Nice list.

    I'll add a few of my own from Texas.

    Texas (Jr.) WR Malcolm Williams-6'3 225. TO size and potential (imo). Williams needs to put it all together and have big season. Williams is capable of it though.

    Texas (Jr.) LB Keenan Robinson-6'3 232. Robinson has good size, good range and hits like a TRUCK. I think Muschamp is going to develop him into a Big-Time LB'er.

    Texas (Jr.) DT Kheeston Randall-6'5 295. Kheeston is a HUGE dude that can really move.

    Texas (Jr.) LB Emmanuel Acho-6'2 235. The younger Acho brother is an extremely athletic sideline-to-sideline LB'er.

    I'm not sure if any of them would consider coming out after their Jr. season, but if I had to guess then I could see Robinson and Randall having really big seasons and get graded/ranked highly from some scouts.

        True, he is a very talented receiver, but I expect big things out of John Chiles to be honest, hopefully he really breaks out this year and plays up to his potential, at times he looks like a really talented receiver, just needs more opportunity.

        Robinson played well last year and was on of their better backers, but yes this year people will know who he is a lot more, that is for sure. Honestly thought the loss of Houston and Kindle will hurt them more than they know. Unless the incoming freshman are that good, which I doubt, they will be effected by the loss of both those dominating players inside.

          Some OSU mentions:

          Mike Adams OT JR. - - Was very highly recruited will saw playing time here and there during his first two seasons. He's going to start at LT this season and he oozes potential to be a great blindside guy.

          Zach Boren FB SO. - - Kinda weird mentioning a fullback, but Boren is the real deal. A high school linebacker, he punishes players during his blocks and should pave the way for a mixed crew of tailbacks for the team this season.

          Duron Carter WR SO. - - Could start the season opposite side of Posey, but is a threat in the slot as well. He has surefire hands and is a great route runner.

          Nathan Williams DE/LB JR. - - Plays a hybrid like position for the team and is a solid all-around talent. He has a knack for making plays behind the LOS and is very, very strong.

          Jake Stoneburner TE R/SO. - - Tall, lanky and speedy threat to stretch the field. He needs to develop his run blocking but he is a dynamic player with great receiving ability.

          Etienne Sabino LB JR. - - He should start the season on the strong side and is a natural athlete and tackler.

            Boren I agree, he should be a fine fullback for them, oddly enough don't they also have Jamar Martin's brother as well at fullback? If he is anything like his brother, he should be a great player as well.

            Nathan Williams I am interested to see, remember one guy on here saying he is better than Gibson, I doubt that but we will see.

            And Carter better show up, he is the son of Chris and he should be a good player. Sadly in any sport almost no son of a famous Hall of Fame player ever becomes greater than their dad. Almost never happens ever!

            Look at Montana's son, Munoz's son, Winslow's son, Elway's son, Payton's son etc. etc. Even Michael Jordan's son in basketball, Ewing's son, Walton's son....list goes on forever. And do not give me this Archie Manning/ Peyton and Eli stuff, Archie was never an all time great quarterback or one of the top 10 ever.

            It totally works the other way around however, average to slightly above pro athlete dad and their sons become better than them, happened with Kobe and Peyton and many others. But rarely if ever happens that the dad is a all time great and kid is even better than him.

                I said again Archie is not a all time football great, great college player but as a pro he is not in the NFL Hall of Fame, Peyton is a lock for the Hall of Fame thus he is the better of the two.

                As for baseball, I cannot speak for that because I do not watch it, but were Bonds, Griffey and Alou's fathers really better than their sons? I doubt it.

                As for Grant Hill, his dad did not even play the same sport as him so that does not count in my opinion.

                Thus no real examples here in my opinion. Again I am talking Hall of Fame dad, with a son that reaches that same level. I have yet to find one.

                  I missed the hall of fame player part.

                    What can people tell me about Alshon Jefferey? I saw him play once or twice last year, and came away very impressed.

                      This is irrelevant but I played against one of Deion Sanders illegitimate sons in high school.

                        Yeah, I think Chiles will have a pretty good season too. Last year was his 1st season at WR for Texas. I hope Chiles makes BIG strides his 2nd year at the WR position.

                        No Doubt Kindle and Houston were both absolute Beast on the field. Hopefully Eddie Jones, Sam Acho and Alex Okafor can step up at DE.I hope Kheeston "Big Money" Randall and Calvin Howell both step up in a big way at DT for Texas as well.

                          I can't verify to their accuracy, but I've heard rumors that Carter may redshirt this year because of grades.

                            Defensive Tackle Montori Hughes and Safety Janzen Jackson are two to watch at Tennessee. They are both future first rounders in my opinion.

                              I agree with Martin, he is a solid looking player and I always liked Roh as a prospect since high school. Could add Campbell to the list possibly as well for them, and hell Gardner could be the starting quarterback by years end.
