Some players to keep an eye on are:

Joseph Addai
Ronnie Brown
Lawrence Maroney
Deangelo Williams
Cadaliac Williams
Marion Barber
Ladell Betts
Brandon Jacobs

Just ignore GRF and his insatiable need to post threads every 10 minutes. He knows nothing about football, and thus he wouldn't know about Cadillac or his ROY & OROY awards collection.

Vernand Morency is my pick. I think he's going to be given the starting job in Green Bay and now that the rookies on that OL have a year of experience I think the blocking will be much better for him.

He speaks the truth! How come when Najeh got a 100yd there was so much talk about him, but when Morency does he gets no publicity. Noah Herron also had 100yds. Those two could work great together. Thunder&Lighting
Anyway my list
Ladell Betts(Sorta had one, needs to get out of WAS)
Deangelo Williams
Caddilac

Morency/Herron would be one of the worst runningback tandems in the NFL. Neither has proven anything.

What do you mean, both had 100yd games, that was enough for many to call Gado and davenport starters

Hence why I think Morency is prime for a breakout season. He's going to go from virtual unknown and afterthought into a reliable starter in the NFL

I think Marion Barber, even though he is a CowBoy I love this guy, he is a great pure runner, one of the best pure runners in the game IMO. Although i hope he doesn't have a breakout year..being a Eagle fan and all:p

Barber is my vote as well. I think the Barber/Jones duo would be much better off with Barber getting the majority of carries and softening the defense, and Jones coming in for about ten or so carries a game. If that happens, I expect Barber to have a monster season.

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.

Well, I'll vote for DeAngelo Williams provided he gets the necessary carries and touches in the offense. He was my favorite player in the draft last year.

Brian Westbrook.Here me out,he is always thought to be a dangerous weapon but not as much as a surefire runner.Despite a great year he wasnt looked at for the pro bowl and I think Philly will actually run more to keep Mcnabb healthy and Westbrook is going to have a monster season and be respected as a runner and not just a versatile weapon.

I can understand what you mean about the pro-bowl, but I still think last season was his breakout year. He had a lot of questions regarding durability going in, but really carried the Eagles after McNabb's injury, although Garcia got more credit for him. I still think he broke out last year though, and could "put the cherry on top" this year.

As for my choice, hate the Pats, but I love maroney for some reason, and think this is his year to break out. Just a gut feeling, surrounded by what I saw out of him last year. Wouldn't be suprised to see Addai put up some big numbers too.

The thing is Brian Westbrook pretty much got no recoginition around the league outside of the Eagles so although it was a breakout for him,he this year can breakout and make everyone aware of his ability to actually run the ball.

Benson will have a massive year with Jones out of the way.
