Breakout Season Pick!

Recommended Posts

The thing that is so great about this topic-- is that there are so so many possible picks--i wont list them all but think about it a minute and over a dozen good guesses come to mind

 

MY PICK)__ Jonas Gray--- i think with aldridge moving to fullback -- and even though a expect great years from both armando and hughes---from the few runs he had i have a feeling on jonas--- 500 Yards on less then 100 carries through 13 games-- plus some TD's

sometimes a linemans attributes to a team is hard to measure, but I think Sam Young is going to be what everyone expected him to be coming out of high school. I think Verducci helps him reach his potential and anytime we need "4.1yds" we will be running right up his back. I do like the Jonas Gray pick a lot tho.

duval kamara: had a good freshman year and then went through the sophmore slump. i think with the db's emphasis on mike and golden i think duval will have an exceptional year.

Defense - KLM. He will terrorize quarterbacks time and time again.

 

Offense - AA. He has shown flashes of stardom but has been crippled behind that bad o line play. This year he breaks out and helps put games out of reach so Jonas can get in during the 4th quarter and get some experience and yardage. Tate, Floyd, Clausen, and Rudolph arent really capable of having a breakout season cause we all know what they are truly capable of.

 

One darkhorse that im picking would be a truly great story and that is Ragone. Man has been through so much if he came back under the shadow of Rudolph and constant knee injurys and showed what we all thought he would be then he would instantly be an Irish hero.

to me AA is a *very* likely choice. seemed to really be putting it together at the tail end of last season.

 

i think fleming, johnson and KLM *all* have a great chance to be breakout players. and maybe flier too...

I'm pretty stoked about Filer coming into the mix and hopefully starting. I think he's one of the least talked about players coming into the fold who could make the biggest impact.

If Verducci helps Sam reach his potential, then Sam should be our starting left tackle next year.

I'm going to step out on a line here and say......me. Yeah, you read it right. I really feel like I'm going to step it up this season. I'm ALMOST ready to predict a win. Not totally there yet BI...but I just might be getting close. This could be my break out year.

My vote would go to Sergio Brown guys. This kid made alot of big plays last year and kind of flies under the radar. I remember the big blocked punt right before the half against SD St in which we scored a TD from. He also had a ridiculous game against Hawaii too with another blocked punt and several great plays on defense and special teams. I think they have missed the boat on this kid and I believe he is a star waiting to happen. I know this might not be popular opinion here, but I believe he is a better safety than K Mac. I think K Mac is a solid player, just not a guy who will make plays like SB. Yes I know K Mac was the leading tackler in the secondary, if not the entire team, but Brown makes game changing plays. Those are the kind of guys I want on the field. That's my vote!

Due to much improved line play on offense, I believe our entire offense is going to have a break out season....however, I think the biggest beneficiary of the improved line is going to be Jimmy Clausen. Having a running game, and an actual pocket will be HUGE for JC. He is going to put up crazy numbers this year.

 

I think we are going to see a similar thing on D. Due to much improved line play, I think out entire D is going to be improved. Having Walls back is also going to be huge. I think the player that is going to be the breakout player on D is going to be Steven Filer.

 

I am picking Armando to have a breakout year on ST.
