    Just curious to ask if anyone believes that a certain player will stand out this season? The proverbial diamond in the rough, or an unknown that will have a spectacular season, who is your pick?

    I didn't know we were allowed to pick former first and second round picks. Okay then, I expect breakout seasons from Jason Verrett, Melvin Ingram, and Keenan Allen. It's impossible to predict pro bowl selections, but I think they'll have good enough seasons to warrant PB discussion.

    I expect "star is rising" type seasons from Manti Te'o, Melvin Gordon, and Jerry Attaochu.

    I expect a crash and burn season from Jimmy Wilson, and of course Kendall Reyes for the 3rd year in a row.

    My comeback player of the year is Donald Butler. Like I said I just don't believe he's as bad as he played last year, and it's worth remembering how BAD our D-line was/is, all the LBs suffered for it. Ryan Carrethers needs to get good and stay healthy or it's going to be more of the same.

    They need lot's of players to step up. I think that if Ryan Carrethers can make a large second year leap it will have a huge impact across the entire defense - relieving a lot of physical and mental pressure on the LBs and DBs, hopefully letting them play looser and faster.

    I'm going to go with Donald Butler. The guy was outstanding 2 years ago, and had a bit of a set back last year. I still believe he can get back, and stay at that form.

    Stevie Johnson is the latest to say he's going to be the best CB in the league.

    If he were 1 inch taller, he'd never have been a Charger.
