    This years sleeper break out player

    Name who you think will become this years Vic Cruz. Actually I think it's pretty slim that anyone has the breakout that V.C did. But I'm saying, which bench player or even rookie steps up his game to earn a starting role or household name

    Offense- Mitch petrus. Possibly JJ or Barden

    Defense- Marvin Austin. Possibly rivers or hosley

    I started from the trenches. I would love to see petrus earn a starting spot. I like his run blocking. And especially his energy, attitude. Marvin Austin could either be a total bust, or a nightmare for every guard and center in the league. I see him as all or nothing. Other than that, I chose a receiver because someone is gonna reap huge benefits from our 1-2 punch of nicks and Cruz. And of every name I chose, I am hoping that rivers blows it up the most. He could be that missing piece, we have been starving for a big playmaker at LB. I am so excited to see how we use this wide variety of talent that we have.

    I think this year KP finally gets the recognition he deserves. One of the best young safetys in the league.

    Lots of talent to choose from

    On D I like Linval and Prince
    On O I like Marty B and Ahmad Bradshaw

    I think if Cruz is willing to switch back and forth between the Y and Z Jerell Jernigan could have a breakout season in the slot. It'd be risking a lot considering the proven success Cruz can already have though. If KG and Coughlin are willing to take a risk Cruz playing some snaps in the slot with Randle on the outside and others on the outside with J Jernigan in the slot I think that could really potentially give defensive coordinators fits.

    EDIT: I missed the keyword "sleeper" there before, if anyone quoted or responded to my previous post I apologize for that; just staying on point..

    My guess:

    Prince, Jernigan, Herzlich and maybe Marvin Austin

    and I must add, the special teams should be vastly improved this year. There is going to be a lot of talent and speed on the special team units.

    Football has been very, very good to us.
    In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Love your picks:

    O - Barden
    D - Rivers

    I'm thinking Petrus will have his chance this year, but it won't be a break out season.

    It's hard to classify first or second round picks as "sleepers".




    D - Herzlich




    O - Jernigan




    Two guys who the fans don't seem to expect too much from, who could bust out this year . . .
