True - Herron's a career backup and actually a great guy to have as your #3 RB but Morency definitely has potential - even though most people don't even consider it. I'm glad to see non packer fans are giving him recognition.

I can't see how he can have a breakout year this year. He already had one last year. He had 654 yards rushing and 14 touchdowns.

The top name that comes to mind would be Laurence Maroney, provided he's healthy. If he's healthy, they should have a system more suited to his running style, and better weapons in the passing game to create increased opportunities in the run game.

Maroney slightly edges out DeAngelo Williams for me, largely because, as of now, Maroney doesn't have as strong competition for touches, IMO. That said, the Panthers system should suit DeAngelo much better, and if he gets the touches, it could be a big year.

Ronnie Brown wasn't really considered for me, largely because, while getting 1000 yards is no big deal, I don't really think of him as a breakout option, barring Ronnie going crazy and having, say, 1600 rushing yards or something significantly better. But that's my own guidelines. I guess that's the same reasoning for Addai (1400 total yards is a pretty dang good season and hard to really break out from that).

Whoever's the main runner in Buffalo should have a lot of opportunities as well. My darkhorse would be Lamont Jordan putting together a big year with the revamped leadership and structure there.

I'm surprised you didn't name drop Benson. Any runningback in the Bears system should be good for 1000+ yards, and if you toss in a talented guy like Benson who knows what's possibly.

I like Deangelo as a candidate for breakout RB of the year. If he can steal more carries away from Foster he will find himself in a pretty decent situation.

I like DeAngelo (a lot), so I will pick him to break out. I also think Benson will have a good year.

Not so much of a breakout year, but I think Jamal will put up a better year than last year having his ankle cleaned up.

My non-homer pick would have to be Ced Benson, I think hes going to go for 1,200+ next year.

Maroney - gets the bulk of carries..ZBS coming in..more threats so teams dont stack 8 in box. Big year

Barber - Marion Barber that is..hes well liked in Dallas..he'll get a chance to compete for starting role..and JJ will get hurt like always so Barber grabs it. Hes a strong guy who scored over 12 TDs last year

McGahee - he actually enjoys where he is right now and its a better team overall. They'll find a way to use him effectivley and he'll have a big year in B-Town

Henry - Denver..what else do i need to say?

Laurence Maroney and Cedric Benson, both by default. Both are clear-cut starters on teams that are clearly among the top two or three in their division, or the whole NFL for that matter, so both should get a ton of touches, probably double what they had last year...

DeAngelo, he's going to take the starting job and then explode in the ZBS.

I definitely agree with the Cedric Benson mention, that boy is a beast waiting for more touches and is a perfect fit for that team/city. I'd probably put Brandon Jacobs close behind, I think Droughns will help keep him fresh for the entirety of a season but won't steal too many carries from the big guy.

Re: Joseph Addai, even though he didn't start a regular season game last year, he did get a majority of the carries and even more than that, he was on the field for a majority of the time whether or not he touched the ball (especially pass blocking). So I'm not sure if any natural improvement from a very productive rookie year can be considerd a "break-out," if the Colts still plan on working with two backs to keep both guys reasonably fresh for the end of the year.

I'm looking forward to seeing what 3D will do. All reports indicate that the team sees promise in him, mind you they kept him on the 53-man roster for the entire season after snatching him on waivers once the Bengals cut him in their final roster cuts. Anyody who saw him play in the pre-season with the Bengals could see why the Colts like him.

I think it's very possible that the Colts choose to operate with Addai and 3D. The team also signed Kenton Keith from the CFL, and there are some solid mid-round backs in this year's Draft, so it will be interesting to see how it all unfolds by the time the season starts.

Whoever is on the roster will have the benefit of runningbacks coach Gene Huey, who has been a mainstay for the Colts for over 15 years and has coached Marshall Faulk to Edgerrin James to Dominic Rhodes to Joseph Addai. Another case where the Colts have been very forutnate to have consistent, quality coaching - something that is overlooked today imo.
