Breakout Year from a Non-rookie?


Recommended Posts

Who do you think will have the biggest breakout year from a non-rookie?

 

For now I'm going to say Ben Banogu. Rewatching some moments of last season has me really optimistic on the guy. 

 

As an additional note I wish I could say Okereke, but he'll probably still have a backup role, but wow, the kid really flashes some high end potential.

Parris Campbell

I'm going with Rock. He was putting it together towards the end of the season. Looking forward to seeing his growth. Having someone like Rhodes in his ear as well should really help him.

I'm shocked it took 25 responses. The over/under was 10. I lost, had the under.

i'll say bobby

 

i wonder if campbell will get enough touches, we have several other small receivers 

Campbell will be the 3 and be the slot guy. Plus all the other ways we can use him. The only receiver we have under 6 ft is TY I believe.

I think Rock was playing really good at the end of last season.

I'm thinking Campbell has the best shot at really "breaking out."

If he cleans up the fumbles he seemed to have problems with last year, he could see a LOT of passes. And he has the ability to score a lot.

Yeah I think we can do a lot of similar things with Campbell and Hines. I want to see some two back sets with Hines and Mack or Hines and Taylor.

I would like to see Parris Campbell used like San Fran is using Deebo Samuel. Campbell could be very effective in that role. 

 

On defense I'll go with Rock. The added pressure up front will make things easier on him.

Yep I think that is what we will see. He was basically used just like that in the Steelers game. We can use him in so many ways.

Too many to name but here’s my top 3:

 

Rock - beefed up dline means the DBs job should be easier.  Rock was coming into his own after be thrusted into the role his rookie year.  With the improved dline and pass rush, he should be better

 

Campbell - same reason as rock.  Beefed up supporting cast.  Pittman and ty will be able to demand attention which should allow Doyle and Campbell to eat underneath.  If he’s healthy, he should produce big time for us.

 

Turay - played 4 games last year and had 1.5 sacks and 5 qb hits before his season ended. With the beefed up line and a fully year of rehab and conditioning, turay should be picking up where he left off last year

I'm starting to think he might eclipse 8 sacks. For me, that is more than serviceable as a starter as long as his run defense is avg

My predictions....

 

On D......

Hooker will improve his 2019 PFF (69.5) back to 2018 levels (79.1).

 

Rock's 76.1 coverage grade the last half of 2019 will be his norm in 2020. 

 

Autry, while likely playing more DE this year, will get back to his 2018 level of play.

 

Turay will return to form vs the pass. If he can emerge vs the run, could be special.

 

On O....

Hines will surpass his near record setting rookie stats from 2018. He'll also be a top 5 returner.

 

Campbell if healthy will catch at least 700 yards.

 

If TY's health continues to be an issue, Fountain will emerge.

 

MAC will emerge as our detached TE.

Was his 63 catches for 425 yards near a record?

 

I'm going with Hines.  Rivers knows how to use backs like him.  As long as Reich has him on the field more, I can see 75 catches for 750 yards.

Not for overall NFL.  Barkley had 91 receptions to take over from Reggie Bush's 88 as rookies.

 

Edit:  I think he meant Colts rookie record for RBs:

but it looks like he did beat Edge by one on that.

I’m feeling Hines too. Not sure why, but it just feels like this could be a big year for him in the passing game with Rivers at the helm.

    • Watson started this recent public trade thing by stating that the organization has flawed hiring practices.  And I think he never debunked the idea that the current owner was a lot like his father, simply because he is his son.   Its not really about the next season or even the team's won loss record over the next three years.  Its bigger than that.  I think it would be smarter to not accommodate whiners, and in a legal manner, not set the precedent of accommodating someone who conducts detrimental actions that undermines the new coach and the authority structure of the organization.   If you accommodate Watson, you set the precedent that all whiners need to be accommodated or else you end up singling some out for disparate treatment.  This shows what a cancer players like Watson are to an entire organization.    And, I would think a player like that has limited trade value, despite the rumors.  I would  simply move on from him....forget he even exists...would be the less time consuming and smarter move.  If he wants to sit out, fine, but I'm drafting this spring with the idea that he's going to try to put me at a disadvantage and wait until after FA and the draft before he tells me he wont play next year.   There is some root of the problem that has yet to be revealed.   If its about making bad personnel decisions, resulting in a losing record, I get that....but the HC, OBrien who was responsible for those moves was fired months ago.  Seems like Watson and Watt are still holding some kind of grudge over something, or simply launching their marketing brand by grandstanding.   If I were the GM, I'd just ignore Watson until he apologized for those statements instead of honoring his wishes, and then if the team struggles, show to the whole world what people like that can do to a team, blame the teams failure's over a whiner sitting out the season too arrogant and stubborn to apologize for something he should not have said in the first place.       
    • The 2006 team was the greatest and it is not even a debate. They went 10-0 at home including the playoffs, 16-4 overall, and most importantly won the SB = they finished. The 2005 team during the regular season beat teams by a wider margin but lost in the divisional round. That team did not have Adam Vinatieri either, the 2006 team did. In 2006 we seen the best of Bob Sanders in the playoffs and we went through Ray Lewis/Ed Reed/Steve McNair at Baltimore, and beat Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in the AFC Title Game. Also in respect to the 2009 team, that team didn't have Vinatieri either, nor did it have Marvin Harrison or Bob Sanders, Dungy wasn't the Coach as well. It is 2006 hands down.
    • Probably 2005, that  team was loaded and then played a tragically bad game to the sixth seeded Steelers in the playoffs.    
    • In addition to some of the examples from @stitches:   - Was your offense restricted last season by having a less mobile QB? If so, in what ways? - Your offense was bottom third in play action attempts last season. Can you talk about how play action fits in your offense, and how it might be affected by the physical ability of the QB? - Your defense had some really good stretches, but was less effective against good QBing. (Example, short clock but long TD drives against the Bills/Packers, etc.) What will it take for the defense to take another step forward this season? - What will be Press Taylor's role on the staff? Will that differ from his role in Philly? - You went from a RB coach with decades of experience, to one who hasn't played or directly coached RBs so far. What went into that decision and what kind of impact might it have on the RB group? - At what positions do you think you most need improved playmaking? - How do you think the limited college season, no Combine, and restricted travel might impact prospect evaluation? - To what extent, if any, do you think being the primary play caller impacts your game management and decision making? - Do you still have weekly protection meetings like you did in 2018? How might those be impacted by the changes on the coaching staff?   Just saying, there's a lot of meat out there. Don't have to keep gnawing at the same bone.   Imagine this group trying to cover Gregg Popovich...
