Does anyone else have ideas about who they think will contribute more this year than others may expect? We're all expecting big things out of Selvie, McKenzie, Grothe, etc., but who do you see either filling a gap, or stepping up big time?For me...Cedric Hill - I think this guy is the best TE in the BEAST. Great hands, great focus, seems to run good routes. I saw a lot of faith in him from Grothe last season, and I think Matt continues to get him the ball. I am not quite as sold on TJ being the phenom WR that a lot of people seem to be, he is good, but I don't know if he will be our best receiver this year (stats or perception). Hester is solid, and Mitchell is a burner, however, I think that Hill will get a lot of looks this year as a possession guy, and could be in the top 3 in receptions. My only fear is that he kind of reminds me of Randy McMichael in that he fights so hard for every yard that he will be prone to getting stripped. I think this will be a big year for Ced though.Chris Robinson - This one isn't so much of a stretch, but after 2006, I had higher hopes for Chris than I did for Selvie. This guy was all over the place his freshman season, and I am hoping that he comes back strong, earns a spot in the LB corps, and returns to dominant form. I think he has extremely good instincts on the field, and that is why he was such a presence his first year even though he was slightly undersized for a DE. I think he is the guy that will really open things up on the defense though if he is rushing from the opposite side as Selvie. Mix in Bedford at end on that side as well, and the OL for opposing teams is going to be nervous for the entire week leading up to the game. Who do you focus on? Even showing blitz and backing out of it will make a difference as the QB and OL are going to have to respect his ability to wreak havoc. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
