Ray's always had the tools, but other issues impeded his development in college. With a strong interior, Ray could flourish if given the opportunity to run with it.
WR: Matt Jones. Due to some extremely talent WR's in recent years, people forget that, in the past, many believed that it took WR's 3 years to really develop. Matt got better this past year, and with a new system that, on paper, should help the passing game out, he could put up bigger numbers next year. A 1000 yard season? I don't think it's out of reach.
NT: Shaun Smith. There were some expectations of Shaun breaking out at some point here and there in his short career so far, but it hasn't really occurred. A move to the 3-4 as a NT, with big Ted Washington as his rotating partner, may be what helps, as he has the potential mold to be an excellent fit in the scheme (was drawing a blank on NT's ... the other thoughts were Evans and Bunkley,
TE: Marcedes Lewis. Didn't really mean to get 2 Jaguars in there, and while I was not a big Marcedes fan as a draft pick, he is in a good situation that should help him put up numbers.
Love the Jaguar love, toon. However, I believe that if there's one Jaguars wide receiver that's going to break out, it's Reggie Williams. Williams was already on his way to a breakout year before Leftwich got hurt. The two have a very good chemistry together, and Williams has been flying into Miami every weekend (where Leftwich, Jones-Drew, and Fred Taylor are working out this offseason) to run routes with Leftwich. Williams' best trait is his work ethic.
On the other hand, there have been a ton of whispers about Jones that he doesn't have a great work ethic, and it's becoming more and more apparent that he just doesn't have a huge passion to play football at the professional level.
