Section 310 Posted May 2, 2007 Report Share Posted May 2, 2007 Everyone with a pulse knows the production we can expect from Palmer, Rudi, Chad, and the rest of the starters, but what about the second tier group of players? Who needs to have a breakout season to allow us to get over the 8-8 or 9-7 hump?My key players would be as follows:3rd WR- If Tab Perry is healthy, this is his opportunity to shine. He could grab the bull by the horns like Housmanzadeh and become a legitimate NFL receiver. If he's not healthy then Brazell or Chatman have a shot.D Line- Fanene was hurt last season, but looks like he could be a force. How nice would it be to have another young DE/DT that can be added to the rotation? Frostee also has the opportunity to step up and take someone's job. He was a 3rd round pick and has something to prove.LB- Rashad Jeanty needs to show last year was not a fluke. Caleb Miller...does he grow as a player or was he a wasted pick? AJ Nicholson...he was a tackling machine at FSU...can he step in and do it at this level?Opportunity abounds for these players. Imagine the look of the defense if Rucker, Fanene and Nicholson can all manage to become solid players. Imagine the offense if Tab is healthy and the regular third receiver...he could be special. Only 4 months until kick-off. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
