Below is a list of nine players on our roster that I think will break out during the 2013 FL Season. Rookies ar in BOLD. Players that are UDFA Rookies are in BOLD and Italics.
1. Blaine Gabbert: QB, #11:
With a competent Coaching Staff and plenty of weapons and an improved Offensive Line, he should do much better than he has the last two seasons
2. Ace Sanders: WR, #18:
Sanders plays fast, and is shifty, more than enough to leave would-be tacklers in his dust. He'll primarily work out of the slot, which will help to stretch the field.
3, Denard Robinson: OW, #16:
Robinson is a weapon. It will bee difficult for defenses to adjust to stopping him. He some thngs that he needs to work on, including catchng passes, but when as a RB, he is patient, allowing for his blocks, something that most rookie RBs don't have.
4. Mike Brown: WR; #12:
Brown has shown a lot of progress in practice, and he looks just like what WR Coach Jerry Sullivan saw when he compared Brown to Wes Welker.
5. Tyson Alualu: 5-Tech DE, #93:
Alualu has been a major disappointment for the past three seasons. A nagging knee injury for his first two seasons and microfracture surgery on that same knee during the 2012 off season. Now that Gus Bradley has installed a new defensive scheme and Alualu moved form DT to 5-Tech DE, his position in college, where he should do much better.
6. Johnathan Cyprien: SS, #37:
In my opinion, Cyprien will be the next Troy Polamalu. He is supposed to be a big play maker for our defense, and an instant upgrade. Let's see if that is true.
7. Dwayne Gratz: CB, #27:
Gratz s supposed to replace Reshean Maths. Let's hope he does well this season.
8. LaRoy Reynolds, OLB, #56:
Reynolds will likely be more of a special teams player, but I think that should one of the starting OLBs get hurt, that he will take he opportunity to prove himself.
Special Teams: 1:
9: Tobias Palmer, WR/Return Specialist; #83
I know Palmer fumbled that Kick off (or punt, I can't remember which), but I think he will develop into a return specialist like Devin Hester, and eventually a consistent threat at WR, but I think he will become a threat in the return game first.
What do y'all think?
