Why not start the fun? Predictions for who the top breakout player will be...

My top three
1. Torrey finally learns to beat the double coverage, and seemingly becomes a game changing WR. A WR that could make a QB, but with a QB that could make him as well..... Becomes Flaccos favorite WR

2. Jimmy Smith becomes the shutdown CB we all thought he would become.... Bmore will be a no fly zone. He stepped up in the playoffs big time.

3. Ed Dickson breaks out in a big way... Explodes onto the seen.

And for the bonus

4. Pierce... I'll say it.. He will be a starter by the end of next year... BUT, Rice will still get more snaps.

5. Upshaw emerges in a big way as well

6. Ellerbe is retained and becomes a premier LB

No

and my pick is upshaw getting 8 sacks stepping it up as a pass rusher.

Jimmy...that kid finally finds his grooves and starts playing smart football; all of that with his physicality, he will be our shut down corner.......

I'm buying that...

............
Brown is actually somewhat a possibility if we don't retain Reed...

New one.

We sign Jamarcus Russel to play NT

Terrance Cody - he is in his contract year, will probably have more competition and NT take a long time to develop...this may be a pipe dream but its still a possibility.

I will aslo echo Jimmy Smith, Omar Brown and would like to add Chykie Brown to the conversation he really had some bright moments

Offensively I think Kelechi Osemele will be talked about as one the best young G's in the NFL (if he stays at LG)

#1 im going with the jimmy smith answer as well. partly b.c we really need him too and second i think hes fully capable.
#2 tandon doss- he wont have a huge season by any means but we will start to see why joe wanted him so bad.
#3 Arthur jones. he was looking really good at the end of the season. i think he will have big season

quick notes
wouldnt mind seeing webb bulk up and switching to free safety if we lose reed, he played safety in college and i think with his knee the safety position would be better for it.
also wouldnt mind seeing arthur jones bulk up to 325-330 and take over at NT. that is a big weak spot for us

Upshaw & Smith are the obvious two.

That said, a couple dark horses...

Deangelo Tyson, Arthur Jones and Gino Gradkowski.

Ramon Harewood proves why we've been stashing him first on IR and then as inactive last year. Look for him to become a solid-o-good starter for us next year...

And to push it over the edge... He becomes the starting LT and holds down the fort, after B-Mac (with a 1-year contract) once again shows up overwieght in TC.

1. Yep
2. I can see this too. This could be his year.
3. I don't know. It will depend on what targets Joe still has after the cap cuts.
4. He may have a better season than last year, but I do not see him supplantting Rice.
5. I would be surprised if we do not see a major breakout here.
6. He already is, but I can see more.

I would add Joe to that list. I expect some really good things from him this season.
I also second Omar Brown, and would add Chykie to that as well.

With Paul Kruger most likely going somewhere else, I think Adrien Hamilton will surprise everyone. I have a feeling Tommy Streeter will breakout too. Also, I think Jack Cornell gets the LT spot.

Mine are Osemele and Peirce on offense and McPhee,Jones,Upshaw,Brown and Smith on defense.Either Deonte Thompson or Tommy Streeter could blow up on offense if given the opportunity but I doubt theyll get that shot.

1. Upshaw- Gonna be a star and will make us all forget about Kruger
2. Gino Gradkowski- Got to watch Matt Birk all year. It will show
3. Tandon Doss- Excellent hands. It will be tough to let Boldin go, but if we do, it will be ok. I think Doss will step up in his third year
