    I think this will be a big year for Upshaw.

    This. I know that Doss had some critical drops in the few games he appeared in, but I think all he needs is more reps, and he'll get through those jitters, like Torrey did.

    Huff without a doubt. Extremely underrated player who had to deal with the black hole in Oakland.

    I like the way you think. If this happens, we're going to be extremely difficult to beat over the course of the season.

    Re: Who is your breakout player for this upcoming season?

    Looking at the responses here in aggregate....in no order....

    Huff, Thompson, Oher, Doss, Upshaw, Gradkowski, Dickson, Smith

    It seems to me that you can look at these 8 players and say that the Ravens' season depends on these 8 guys. By that I mean that these 8 guys are the wild cards. We know what Rice or Flaco or Ngata are gonna do, basically, as long as they don't get a big injury. Same with Webb, Graham, Yanda, KO, Leach, Pitta, J McClain, Canty, even Suggs who is a little more unknown coming back from his injury. And with the rookies-Elam, Brown, Williams, etc...they are rookies so they are in a slightly different category.

    But Huff, Thompson, Oher, Doss, Upshaw, Gradkowski, Dickson, Smith. These are the swing players and if most of them play really well the team will be really good but if only one or two contribute only a fair amount then the team will be hanging on to stay relevant.

    Gradkowski developing makes the interior line beastly. Get two of Doss, Thompson, and Dickson to break out and the receiving corps is deadly. A big Jimmy Smith year paired with Webb makes or secondary truly shut-down. Huff would make it even better. Upshaw would be a crazy extra piece who could make the pass rush nutso and the run defense air tight.

    McPhee, he was hurt most of last year. Came on when he felt better down the stretch.

    Re: Who is your breakout player for this upcoming season?

    Not one player necessarily, but I expect our secondary to have a really stellar year. One thing I like is that they've stocked the defense with versatile guys who can change positions, letting us disguise and be very creative. This is going to create a lot of havoc with our pass rush having guys who can either stand up or put their hands in the dirt (Dumervil, Suggs, Upshaw, McPhee, Ngata even). Our secondary also has guys who are able to play pretty much anywhere. I think this fluidity will allow for the ambiguity that will lead to the chaos necessary to create turnovers.

    CAN'T WAIT.

    Re: Who is your breakout player for this upcoming season?

    Last year when we had this thread I picked Jameel McClain and was very wrong. I'm looking for redemption in 2013.

    I really see Jimmy Smith finally becoming that player we thought he would be. He's always had the skills but had a tougher time adjusting to the mental part of the position. Smith needs to get beyond wanting to knock someones block off and jumping routes. Now in his 3rd season he should be ready for that jump. This is the year that Jimmy Smith becomes the next defensive player that Ravens fans rave about.

    I think Doss makes a lot of people eat their words. Theres a spot hes been stuck behind. Its his time to shine and i think he does.

    Jimmy Smith is my bet. I think we'll see more INT's and plays on the ball from him.

    Yes. This is what I mean.

    Settle down. John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco's Baltimore Ravens can beat any team, anywhere.

    Upshaw. Seemed to progress well after a slow start and now has a lot to prove with Ray's departure and the arrival of new DE's and LB's to the mix. I say he's the guy who's going step it up a notch.

    I cannot believe no one has said David Reed.
