    Who's set to break out next year?



    I'm really excited about last year's draft class. Torrey, Jimmy, and McPhee I think will escalate their game to the next level with an actual off-season this year.

    ProFootballFocus seems to think McPhee will break out onto the scene:

    Any of your guys' thoughts? Who'll have a great year? Kruger? Pitta? McClellan? I can't wait to see who steps it up.

    I agree with McPhee. He wrecked the havoc that he did splitting time with two other guys (Jones and Redding). Now he's only got Jones to split reps with.

    Dennis Pitta will cement his place as a fan favourite

    5 regular season TD's, plenty of crucial 3rd down catches and then one TD in every playoff game

    Hands of gold!

    Going to be my next jersey

    I think one of the TE's will break out.

    If Dickson can fix the inconsistency with his hands then I could see him getting upwards of 900 yards or so. Other than Derrick Mason, the only other player to ever ecclipse 1000 yards in Cam's offense was Antonio Gates.


    I don't know if you'd call it a break out or not, but I could see Anthony Allen really picking up the slack as the #2 back on this team. He's already shown some good things and according to the OTA impressions so far, he's got a major step on Bernard Pierce and Damien Berry.

    Joe Flacco

    unfortunately Cam is still here so that's not happening.

    Last time we did this I posted McPhee and I'm sticking with that pick. McPhee has got IT. He has all the natural instincts to be a good pass rusher at this level. I can see him breaking into the double digits for sack numbers this year.

    I like the McPhee pick, but it is kind of expected. So I'm going with Double A. putting up some good numbers as a back up.

    I could see Oher having a breakout year at RT as well. He's coming up on the final years of his rookie deal, he was a high round pick with a lot of hype behind him...I could see him really stepping his game up as well.

If Kruger has the ability he's going to succeed. He couldn't be in a better position than he is this year. It reminds me of Suggs when Boulware got hurt.

    I would really like to see this happen, Kruger break out and have a great year.

    I think Torrey Smith will improve dramatically this year. Last year, he came in as a rookie and also had to deal with the shortened preseason. I look for him and Joe to get more in sync with each other on routes besides just the 9.

    Defense: Arthur Jones and Jimmy Smith
    Offense: Bernard Pierce and Torry Smith

    Without a doubt Jimmy Smith. His level of play increased so much as the year progressed, he looked like a totally different player in the end. With an entire off-season in addition to a whole season under his belt, this kid will surprise people. Definitely takes advantage of William's injury and wins the starting job opposite Webb without looking back. He will play at a pro-bowl level this year. Too much talent, size, speed, and instincts to not make an impact.

    I want to say Torrey Smith, but with his success last year I don't see that happening. Teams are really going to focus on Anquan Boldin and Torrey this year so I am going with Dennis Pitta or a rookie WR (Tommy Steeter, Deonte Thompson, Devin Goda, or Dorian Graham) much like Torrey Smith did last year. Who knows, if David Reed can make an impact this off season maybe him. The reason I didn't go with Ed Dickson, it's only because he hasn't been as consistant as Pitta thus far.

    I didn't go with anyone on D only because even if someone does have a breakout season it will get buried under all of the Haloti Ngata, Ed Reed, Ray Lewis, and even an injured Terrell Suggs focus that the media, outside of Baltimore, puts on it. I know Jimmy Smith is going to have another solid season (sans injury), and Pernell McPhee will do well as well, but don't hold your breath with either of them becoming a household name this year.
