Default Break-out players

I just wondered who you think is gonna be the next Willie Parker/Ike Taylor/James Harrison for the Stillers. i.e a player that started off slow...but then made a major impact. I'll add a poll...just because they are fun :)


I didnt add Santonio Holmes or Lamarr Woodley...just cus i think they are a given to succeed.

I was tempted by Russell, but i think Smith starts to fulfill his potential this year, so that who i voted for.*** also didnt look to bad this year when he got it. I like him too.

I voted for Smith, just because I think he will get his confidence up this year and kick ass and have 5-6 interceptions. I was going to put Woodley, but we all know what he will do. Also, dont forget Timmons, as I think he will come on strong next year and do better then Foote ever did.

I voted for G a y because i think he has the easiest transition to be a starter and therefore be a breakout player.

Smith - if Clark comes back healthy he is the starter and anthony has to prove himself all over again.

Colon/Kemoeatu - i think there's too much uncertanty along the o-line, we're not even sure who will be here and who will be playing where to predict who will be a breakout player, plus with Colon already a starter I'm not sure he can breakout any more.

Russell - if Davenport stays then Russell is back to 3rd string giving him the potential to breakout but i think it will be harder for him to crack the starting lineup. Also, what if Haynes comes back....

Baker - I was really high on him coming out last yr and thought we had gotten a late rd steal but then he was really unimpressive in camp and I'm not sure how high the coaches still are on him.

Stapelton - I have heard that the coaches like him and if he becomes a starter and plays well then he will win the breakout award among these options but i think G a y has a better shot.

other - I'd like to revisit this option after the draft but for now tho - can a 1st rd pick be considered a breakout? If so I'm hoping that Timmons comes on this yr just cause I'd hate to see us have a wasted 1st rd pick.. I think the plan for him was to move Foote in for Farrior once he retires/gets too old, and then put Timmons in for Foote where i think he can really excell.

My vote is for Gary Russell. I think he may surprise this year and really pick up the slack, when Davenport is released

I voted for Anthony Smith as I think he has great potential and just needs to play a little more disciplined, not necessarily less aggressive. I've always been a huge fan of Smith and his potential, and it seems as though he's always showing slight glimses of it, though IMO, it's only a matter of time until he breaks out and develops into a great ballhawking, trash talking, huge hitting safety. Oh, I can see it now.

I think Stapleton will be the starter next year and compared to Mahan, he may look like Jeff Hartings.

I think it will be Gary Russel if the line actually decides to block anyone.

And he earns some playing time by outshining Davenport in pre season

I'm going with Russell. He has to get the shot but here is what I see.

Russell was out of football for almost a year. A good summer working out will be good for him. When I see him run I see a poor mans Emmitt Smith. He hits the whole real well with solid lean and I like that I see him always going forward.

Take this for what it is worth but I would not be shocked at all if he turns out to be a GREAT back. FWP has more speed and runs with incredible heart but I do not see the vision or patience that I see glimpses of in Russell.

Russell IMO looks to have natural RB skills.

I sure hope he starts over Mahan, especially if we only have Mahan and Stapleton as center's on the roster next season, because honestly, I just don't really want to see Mahan on the field at all next season, especially in a starting role.

UDFA from rutgers last draft class, a bit undersized at about 290, but apparently plays pretty tough and the coaches love him

Heard the exact same thing Mike, that he's around that 308lbs mark or something. But yeah, apparently he looks pretty big now, which is a good thing, because when he came here from Rutgers, he was a little undersized as I believe you said.
