Breakout Player of the Year 2014 Edition

57 posts in this topic

Let's do this damn thing. 

 

So who is going to be our breakout player on offense and defense? 

 

Offense? 

 

 

Kyle Juszczyk

 

While by no means is he going to be an all pro or anything, a year at least learning how to block under Leach will assure that he NEVER LEAVES THE FIELD. He'll stay on for running plays because he's a fullback. He'll stay on for passing plays cause he's a skilled receiver. 

 

He's a tough guy to bring down if you look at it. 

 

 

While not playing a great level of competition, he still displayed good to great hands and toughness after the catch.

 

He won't be flashy, but he will be effective. 

 

Expect him to be a short yardage guy on 3rd and 2 and such, and to be a fan favorite for years to come

 

 

Defense? Gotta go with my man(or Grim's man... get a room :P)  

 

 

 

Arthur Brown (Yes all sophomores...) 
 

My god the last minuet of that video is insane.

 

My reasoning for this is that we usually have a reputation at being good at developing LB's. Brown is already very good in coverage, and having Dayrl helps him there. He also showed promise as a blitzer(in other words, HE WILL NEVER LEAVE THE FIELD.). 

 

If he improves his run defense look out, he will be the next Dayrl Smith.

Well, let's see. I think the top candidates are Tyson, Lewis-Moore, Elam, Williams, Arthur Brown, Chykie Brown and possibly Omar Brown.

I think Arthur Brown's role will be dependent on how the DL does in front of him. That's why I'm not keen yet on calling him the breakout player. Since I expect us to use other options at CB and FS I'll eliminate Chykie and Omar. That leaves the DL and Elam. I think Tyson and Williams beat out Moore for the starting gig. I'm putting my money on Williams as the breakout player with Matt Elam another possibility. The better our pass rush the better I think he will do.

As for offense, I would wager Juszczyk, Mellette, Brown and Pierce have a distinct chance to breakout more than any other players. If I had to guess it would be Pierce because I think Rice gets suspended. Grafted an argument can be made he already broke out but I don't think he did yet. With Kubiak and an improved OL I think he will.

I don't think we'll have a true breakout player on defense, like we did last year with Jimmy. I do think Elam will step up though.

Offensively, nearly every significant contributor is already established, other than Pierce, Juice, and KO. I don't think Marlon will get enough snaps to surpass his rookie season. Only things I see happening is either KO plays lights out, Pierce takes over permanently as starter or maybe a rookie comes in and plays well.

On defense, I'm going with Elam. With him moving to where he's at his best, he'll be great.

 

It's tough to say on offense. Peirce would be the best bet since he might get a chance at being the starting running back and having a better line to work with compared to last year. Otherwise, I say it depends on who gets drafted.

Chykie Brown is my pick. I've liked what he's done in limited action. I predict he will lock down that 3rd CB spot and play really well for us.

My homer pick is Gerrard Sheppard. It's a long shot.

 

My realisic would have to be Juice. You don't take a full back that high for him to be a special teamer. They saw something they like with him, let's get him on the field.

I like Brown and think he can develop into our own Darryl Washington. Might go with Brandon Williams or KLM. On offense I'll go Pitta or Pierce. Can Zuttah count?

That last minute of Arthur Browns highlight reel amazes me. The way he took down pre ACL injury RG3 is great. Makes me want them to build our entire defense around him.


Breakout player is tough. For me I will say John Simon emerges as a very good situational pass rusher.

I expect Dennis Pitta to have a career year, and I think Marlon Brown will also make terrific strides this year.  On defense, I'm going Brandon Williams - I expect Williams to start seeing his snaps increased significantly in the coming years.

I think Marlon breaks out - not in yardage, but in scores: I'm saying 12+.

 

Defense, idk about anyone breaking out, but maybe the defense as a whole will step up as a whole back solidly in the top 10 in all areas, especially against top tier offenses and qbs.

Isn't it a little soon to be talking about breakout players?! Man we're not even in OTA's yet.

 

Bit mad that a few stole my thunder on this one, but I think DeAngelo Tyson is going to break out on defense. As far as offense goes, I think Pierce  is going to break out. And by break out, I mean have a 1000 yard season and double digit touchdowns.

Tyson and Pierce.

 

I expect great things from KLM but he won't have enough snaps to call it a breakout year.

 

On the other hand, what if we re-sign Cody? He might do it, too.

I'm going to surprise everyone when I say this....Jacoby Jones as a WR.

He still has his speed, and before he got hurt last year (I know it was a couple of plays) he looked comfortable catching the ball. On top of all that he looks like he's genuinely happy in Baltimore sometimes that's that little extra push that a person needs.

Nothing major

50 catches 800 yards 7-9 TD.

(Yes that means I'm expecting Joe to throw for over 40 TD as well)

i say keep an eye on deonte thompson, if he makes it through camp and still is on the roster i think he will be a very good player IF given the opportunity..

 

Defense i say: Elam showd flashes that were he was over the field last year making plays so keep a eye on him also but i'll go with simon and McPhee i still like Mcphee would like to see him go back  to  DE where he has and had a opportunity to start, Simon i think has the ablity to play multiple LB  postion and be succesful.
