        Tavares Gooden was one of my favorite players in the 2008 draft. I think he's going to beast as a starter.

          Didn't read the first page, so I may have missed it but:

          I'd be lookin for Josh Morgan to be the top reciever in San Fran this year.

            AFC North:
            Baltimore Ravens- Jared Gaither: One of the more impressive young offensive lineman I've seen in some time. The Ravens got a good one in him.

            Pittsburgh Steelers- Rashard Mendenhall: I am really hoping this kid is a big time bust but I think he could be a big contributor to that team and eventually take over for WP. If they can shore up their OL- watch out.

            Cleveland Browns- I really don't know or care. Brady Quinn maybe?

            Cincinnati Bengals- While I agree with the Keith Rivers getting many votes, his emergence is already pretty much expected in my book. He started out great and was poised for a huge year before getting hurt. I'm going to go with Pat Sims on this one though. IDK for sure if he'll be a starter or not with the addition of Tank Johnson, but I think this kid could prove to be a REALLY good DT in this league for years to come. Could make us forget about not jumping up to get Sedrick Ellis altogether.

              I still believe that Mendenhall is gonna be the best back out of last year's loaded RB class.

                Houston Texans: Amobi Okoye - DT

                Okoye is in a very good position. During the Offseason the Texans strengthened their Defensive Line, bringing in Antonio Smith and drafting Connor Barwin. With Smith and Mario Williams providing pressure on the outside, Okoye should have a very good year bringing pressure on the inside.


                Indianapolis Colts: Anthony Gonzalez - WR

                Anthony Gonzalez played his best football in his Rookie season when he lined up as the number #2 Receiver, opposite Reggie Wayne. Gonzalez will be doing that again this year and has now also spent 2 full seasons in the league and 2 seasons with Manning. Wide Receivers normally breakout in the 3rd Season in the league and so everything is primed for Gonzo to step up this season.


                Jacksonville Jaguars: Derrick Harvey - DE

                There were signs last season that Harvey was starting to play well, even registering 2 sacks against Baltimore in Week 17. Rookie DEs normally struggle, a fact that wasn't helped by Harvey's late entry to Training Camp. With him starting to learn the Defense, and getting a full Training Camp, Harvey could have a very good 2009 campaign.


                Tennessee Titans: Bo Scaife - TE

                Bo Scaife has improved consistently since his entry into the league, getting better and better every year. While it could be argued that the Titans brining in better Wide Receivers will reduce Scaife's chances in the passing game, Scaife will continue to be a good target and will take advantage of Safties having to stay deeper against the new Wide Receivers.

With short bullet passes and long bombs he marches his troops into enemy territory, balancing this aerial assault with a sustained ground attack which punches holes in the forward wall of the enemy’s Defensive Line.

                In Baseball the object is to go home and be safe.

                  I actually change my Bengals pick to their improving defense. Later in the year they started to stop the run a whole lot better, plus they get a lot of takeaways(I believe they were top 5 in this stat?). If they can get to the passer, I believe they could very well contend for a playoff spot if that offensive line holds up and Palmer stays healthy.

                  He's going to bust a nut on every single one of your defenders! But in all seriousness, I have read that Mendenhall gained good weight in the offseason and is around 230, but at the same speed. I just hope he takes the next step for us. He should be exciting to watch.

                      Pittsburgh Steelers - It's going to be a toss up between Mendenhall ( a popular choice), Lawrence Timmons (a popular choice), and Limas Sweed with an increased role in 2009. I am most sold, personally, on Timmons. I think the guy will be one of the better linebackers in the league. I'm not expecting gaudy sack numbers or anything ridiculous out of any of his stats, but I think he will be a noticeable upgrade as a full-time starter, which is saying something on that defense. Neither Sweed nor Mendenhall have absolutely convinced me, but then again, Rashard was hurt and rookie receivers are never known to be overly productive.

                      Cleveland Browns - Brady Quinn. Finally. I think Quinn will emerge this season as a solid Quarterback for Cleveland. The Browns have plenty of issues on both sides of the ball, so Quinn's breakout season may not be expressed well in the standings, but the Browns will finally know what they have there and be able to build confidently around him.

                      Baltimore Ravens - Tavares Gooden. The Ravens strength up front will ease Gooden's transition to a starting role and will ease the loss of Bart Scott. By the end of the season, I could easily see Gooden as, unanimously, their best ILB with the declining play of Ray Lewis. Another guy that may not put up gaudy sack numbers or anything to jettison him to a quick Pro Bowl, but should have a good year on a still dangerous defensive unit.

                      Cincinnati Bengals - Let me go Roy Williams here. He gets the early nod over Chinedum Ndukwe on the depth chart and certainly adds a different aspect to the defense. I am taking a real wait-and-see approach here with Williams and I'm really only giving him the time of day because of the rave reviews he's drawn without pads on and the fact that he's back with Mike Zimmer, the DC that made him a Pro Bowler early in his career. After Zimmer left, Williams wasn't the same player, but still received the same kind of credit and accolades. This pissed fans off and gave Roy Williams his overrated image. If Roy is back in shape, back motivated, which have been noted as positive signs with his second team, then our defense can be a Top 10 unit. Obviously there are other factors, but Roy Williams is able to impact a game from the back end and has a knack for getting in QB's and Receivers heads. Those who pay attention to the Bengals know, no defensive player has struck such fear into a defense since perhaps Takeo Spikes. The best part... If the Williams experiment doesn't pan out and we see balls flying over his head in training camp, Chinedum Ndukwe is an experienced starter and a pretty good one at that. Zimmer could have some fun this year.

He'll hopefully get to roam around and use his great athletic ability to become the playmaker that he's capable of being.
                        Hmm.....
                        Gerald Alexander will begin Jaguars training camp at free safety, indicating that Reggie Nelson's starting job may be in jeopardy.

                          If Butler and Levitre are guys I shouldn't worry about, then my expectations for our offense just skyrocketed.

                          Walker I have concerns for, but he's a good linemen and I'm just hoping he can give us something average there.

                                Skins - LaRon Landry // I know a lot of you are probably saying "hasnt he already broken out??" but I honestly think that the last two years, while he has been a great safety and shown flashes of brilliance that this upcoming year he is truly going to take his game to the highest level.


                                Eages - Omar Gaither // After 100 tackles two years ago, Gaither fell off last year missing a handful of games. I see him reestablishing himself this year as a stud and leading the team in tackles.


                                Cowboys - Felix Jones // Jones really does scare me more than Barber with the ball. He has what it takes to be a threat at any point in the game. If utilized correctly he is a big time threat.


                                Giants - Steve Smith // Someone has to step up at receiver this year and I dont think it is going to be a rookie right away. Smith has very reliable hands and where he might not be the fastest player he runs good routes.
