Default Biggest Impact Player coming in 2017

Who do y'all think will be the impact guy coming in from the 2017 class?

Would have to think Shi / OrTre for Offense and Jamyest or Javon for defense would be the most common answers.

I think it will be Javon will make a huge impact, but you could also make a case for Skai Moore coming back and providing some much needed leadership.

And I'll add Ty'Son Williams for the offense. I was VERY impressed with him in the spring game. I know it's just a spring game, but even if him and Dowdle split carries, I feel bad for defenses. Having a high-quality RB on the field every single play isn't fun to defend.

Default Re: Biggest Impact Player coming in 2017

Looking at the 2017 signees:

Jaylin Dickerson will make an impact, along with Jamyest likely. The secondary is thin and wasn't really that good. With Skai back in the mix, who showed great ability in covering passes, I think this is going to free up the safeties to be more active. Jamyest is good and also coming into a spot where he can play soon.

Kinlaw is in the same boat, too. Good player in a spot of need.

Honestly, I think we're going to hear more about Jaylin this upcoming season just due to his position and the upgrades needed there.


Offensively, it's Ortre.

I think Kaleb Chalmers will big the biggest impact on Defense. He has everything already there to make an impact on day one. Kinlaw I'm really not expecting a Clowney-Ingram type improvement, which is what we need to see a real improvement on the line, so I don't see him being a big difference maker.

Depending on how they use him, Jamyest will have the biggest impact on Special Teams. I think he's going to be the next Ace Sanders.

Offense is going to be Ortre or Ty'son. Ortre could get lost a bit with just all of the weapons we have on Offense. Ty'son will be the #2 back at worse come opening day, so he's going to get his.

I think they will be getting the bulk of the carries and it will be fun to watch. It also means that the coaches can keep some of the other backs fresh and cut them lose late in the 4th quarter to run all over a worn down defense.

Denson and Kinlaw pounding the defense late sounds like a great sight or the way dowdle seems to get better with each carry maybe just constant dowdle in excited about our RB this year

I say it will be Jamyest. I suspect he'll be returning punts. If it's a different new guy that wins the job, my answer changes to whoever that is. The disaster that was our punt return team seems to have been somewhat forgotten on the list of things that lost us games last season. This was arguably the weakest aspect of our game.

I agree with you..

When (Defense) Kinlaw signed, he looked from his pics to have a worrisome weight problem.

Maybe he just packed on pounds after his season ended, and he'll show up in shape ready to play. I'm hoping.

If he shows up this Summer with a similar amount of extra weight on, it's a good bet he has to redshirt this year getting in shape. We don't have the luxury of quality depth to withstand that, we're going to need a lot of guys cycling in and out. His ability to play can literally make a difference on how our D looks.

Chalmers, Jamyest...they have the chance to contribute immediately.

Ty'son has a chance to contribute, he should get some quality carries.

I'm hoping Ortre heals up enough to make an immediate impact.

Yeah that was bad beyond words. I wasn't exactly sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for Hurst to take one to the house.

Just wanted somebody who could execute a fair catch. That proved to be a very difficult find.

Debo, Williams and Ortre. With Hurst at TE (Hes a future NFL starter, bank on that). In 2 years we've gone from having little more than Pharoah at WR to....one of the most potent groups in the SEC. With another future pro at QB.

This offense could be the biggest surprise story in the SEC. I just know down in Florida the Ole Ball Coach follows whats going on here and he sees this offensive skill group and has a little sparkle in his eye wishing he had these guys.

The answer to the OP - who is the biggest impact player - is Kinlaw (Javon, not Caleb). He is 6' 6" 330 - who is bigger than him?

Kinlaw is a DT now, not a DE. His attraction is as a run stuffer and a guy that cave in the middle of the O Line. 330 is not that big for his height and would diminish his ability to dominate in the middle. I don't think he is going to be asked to drop a lot of weight.

I am hoping some combo of Lil Duce and Bowen can provide some pass rush from LB, Brad Johnson from DE. We need quick twitch!

They want Kinlaw in the 315-320 range. That's straight from the coaching staff.

Default Re: Biggest Impact Player coming in 2017

Conway is right.....they want him 315 or so because we need help in the middle. Have you seen our run defense, especially our sorry Dline the past couple of years?

Muschamp still talking on the radio this morning about telling our incoming DL guys to come in ready to play and just try to be in good as shape as possible because there is tremendous opportunity for them to play this year.

Our DL still appears to need a lot of work for this season.

In regards to biggest impact players I have to think it has to be any one that contributes defensively for us.
