Haha. Welcome back.. seems like you've been gone for awhile. Or maybe I'm tripping.
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.''

I'm not sure there is a player on Oakland's offense I think will "breakout". I think that McCown and Curry will impress a few people this coming season and I'd probably mention Fargas if Oakland's depth at the position didn't pretty much assure very limited action. However, there isn't a player I can see who will have a big year (unless Gallery takes to his guard position and pulls it together).
On defense, there are a few players. I'm as sure as I've ever been about anything football related that Fabian Washington is going to have a very good year. Kevin Huntley is going to make more than a few people say "who?". Terdel Sands supposedly showed up in good shape to previous minicamps, although his impact won't really show much except through how successful the opposite defensive tackle is at getting free.
