Love for it to be Wilds; think it will be Adams. I can easily see a cadre of players taking big steps forward including Williams, Griffin, Lamin, Dukes, D Johnson, Holloman, Bryant. English seems to have huge potential, but not that killer instinct and broad skillset his position calls for. I think Byrd has already stepped-up, but if he hasn't lost 1/2 step, he could become a headliner despite his size.

That's a pretty loose usage of the word 'cadre.' I'll allow it, because it's an awesome term.

Default Re: Breakout player-2014

Certain players I expect to see have "step up" years if not breakout years:

Dylan Thompson
Brison Williams
Sharrod Golightly
Corey Robinson
Damiere Byrd
Busta Anderson
JT Surratt

Why? Because all the above are predominantly starters or have played enough to have the experience a starter should have....all have had periods or games of excellence that shows the potential they could have, but perhaps haven't had enough consistency or were in the shadows of others....and all the above are seniors for 2014. If any of them have any dreams or notions of making it to the NFL, then this season will be their best chance to stake a case for themselves, and all should have ample opportunities as each are expected to be primary starters in 2014.

A number of them have already entertained the idea of leaving early for the NFL or at least getting some feedback from the league on their potential draft standings, but ultimately chose to come back for their final year of eligibility, so certainly the dreams of continuing their FB careers are there.

These will be primary leaders for our team in 2014, and are on pace to graduate as the winning-est class in program history. Hopefully we see all of them looking to outdo the other in having career years in 2014....

This is easy. 2 players. Both on defense. Al Harris Jr., because he will be the freshmen db most ready to play from day 1. English also, because he will probably be the only real pass rusher we have.

My breakout players are Johnson and Jamari.
Jamari got some real positive reviews a few weeks ago in regards to his performance this summer, according to TBS.

Would be tough for Busta as he will be coming off a triceps tear.

From what I have read he should be good to go first game. Besides, he doesn't need a break out game, we already know what he can do.

The guy I hope has the best year is Dylan. If we are singing his praises them we are winning and he is pitching it around to everyone. Checking it down at the right time to the right man on each play will keep the chains moving and allow him to take shots downfield.

That said I am expecting an Ace Sanders year out of P. Cooper.

From all accounts, he is moving just like he was pre-ACL. If this is true then he is going to slide into Brison Williams' Boundary Safety spot and that'll allow Brison to play Corner this year. Which is not the ideal route to take but might be a must if Lammons and Green fail to get into school or take longer to develop than expected when they get here.
TJ Gurley is a good pick. If you recall, as a freshman, he was padawan to Swearinger and subscribed to Swearinger's other-worldly training. If TJ has kept it up, he could be as good as he wants to be.

I'm hoping Ced Cooper is a breakout player for us. If he is, that means our defensive line's pass rushing will be great.

I'm still a big believer in Larenz Bryant. Saw flashes of what he could do last year on ST. He is by no means a disappointment IMO, we just have great depth at Spur. Hope he finds the field somewhere.

Default Re: Breakout player-2014

The players with best chances to be breakout players for 2014 are David Williams and Darius English. I pick Williams even though he is not a starter because he is our second most talented back and extremely hungry plus competitive. English has the most upside out of our defensive lineman and will have plenty of opportunities to show off his new strength gains.

I agree. If DT doesn't have a huge year, it won't matter much if others do. If we want to go to the Georgia Dome, DT has to bring it. I think he will.

Pharaoh Cooper at QB, RB, WR
Go Green at DE, he will be quick off the line and no one will double team him.
