  • Breakout Player

    The main reason I'm creating this thread is hopefully to hear from Scott to see if he's going to do a "breakout college player" this year. I really enjoyed seeing those in the past years and he's done pretty well at pegging breakout guys.

    Anyway, since a thread has been started, who do you see as this year's college breakout player? Keep in mind this isn't just who you believe will have a good year, it's who will break onto the scene for the first time. So Ray Rice, Steve Slaton and all of those guys are out of the conversation because they have already broken out.

    My personal pick is Marlon Lucky, RB from Nebraska. A pretty highly touted recruit coming out of high school, he's never really been the main ball carrier at Nebraska. If he gets a decent amount of carries this year, I see him putting up huge numbers.

    Scottyboy?

        Graig Cooper, RB, Miami. He's splitting carries with James in practice. Should be the KR and PR, and will play WR as well. I'm really excited to see what he can do next year. Other than him a guy I really like is Andre Brown from NC State. Guy is a tank and I really think by the end of the season he can be the 2nd best RB in the country.

        That is correct comahan

          I see Jonathan Stewart breaking out this season.

          I still do not know why he committed to a spread offense program.

            In the Pac-10, the guys who immediately come to mind are-

            Jake Locker, QB Washington
            Louis Holmes, DE Arizona (if he can stay out of trouble)
            Reggie Carter, LB UCLA
            Willie Tuitama, QB Arizona (Sonny Dykes new OC)
            Jonathan Stewart, RB Oregon

            Nationally, I really like some of the guys already mentioned, and-

            Ricky Sapp, DE Clemson
            Chris Wells, RB Ohio St.
            Antone Smith, RB FSU
            Michael Johnson, DE GT
            Tim Tebow, QB Florida

            among others...

              Teel will be ok, but I think at this time next year we will all be talking about Kenny Britt as a first round pick in 2009.

              Same for Darius Heyward-Bey, who I'm really terrified of facing.

                Tashard Choice? A lot of people know him but he gets no respect. Goodson is a good pick as well. Patrick Turner? Vidal Hazelton? Darrius Heyward-Bey? DeMarco Murray? CJ Spiller? One of the UMiami LB's will make a name for themselves this year? A USC RB? I also like Erin Henderson from Maryland

                  I like how we where both thinking Heyward-Bey at the same time, but i guess u beat me to it

                    I think a lot of us kinda felt that Heyward-Bey broke out against GT and Miami last year, but hey, I mentioned some guys that have had some big games too. I think there's too many guys to name.

                      What other schools were recruiting him?

                          SC, WSU, every other Pac-10 school, tOSU, FSU, Florida, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Duke, can't remember the others. In the end he said it came down to WSU and Oregon.

                              ok idk what Jonny is talking about with Teel, who will break out this year, but isnt much of a pro prospect.(but he is a winner) but he is right with Britt who is an amazing talent and will explode on the scene this year. My sleeper pick with break out player for Rutgers is Jason McCourty CB. he's got good hands and with teams staying out of the middle b/c of Greene and Girault in the middle. Also, DE Jamal Westerman should continue his very sold career, especially rushing the passer. Rutgers defense is loaded, with the exception of MLB.
