    LT Jared "The Big Steal" Gaither

    Some may say he's already had his breakout year, but I think he is going to cut down on the stupid mistakes, and be an absolute monster this year.

    Tim Dobbins, talk about separated at birth.

      Didn't Vernon Davis lead the ACC in receiving yards during a certain year? And wasn't Manny Lawson voted the best defensive lineman in college on a team with Mario Williams?

          This really isn't true. Miller was part of a worse offense but was more impressive last year, and that's with being held back to provide help for Oakland's crap tackle play towards the end of the season. He's not as much of a vertical threat, but he's a better blocker and catches the ball better.

          Oakland has a couple possibilities. If Johnnie Lee Higgins makes a jump from '08 to '09 like he made from '07 to '08, then he might surprise a few people. I don't consider this very likely though. One could throw Darren McFadden's name out there, but his name is already the one people are looking for on Oakland box scores. In the absence of McFadden, maybe Michael Bush warrants a mention. He tore Tampa to shreds the last week of the season and could see significant playing time.

          However, the defense will hopefully produce one breakout guy. Chris Johnson, if he can keep his play up, might jump into the limelight. He played some stellar football once he stepped into the starting role. Tommy Kelly, for all he is maligned about that contract, played some good football last year and had very favorable stats when measured against other defensive tackles. If Oakland can get a true 2-tech next to him (Raji?) then he might make the leap. And my personal hope is that Tyvon Branch turns out to be a pleasant surprise. Right now he seems slotted in at SS, which strikes me as a huge mistake, but I hope he can prove me wrong.

            • John David Booty will break out.

                  • I think Tyrell Johnson will have a solid year.



                    • For the Pats, it would great to see Maroney or Crable breakout. We need them both to have big years.

                        That's a very good choice. I think Williams will start to play him to his strengths.
                        The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''
