3. Who do you expect to be the biggest breakout player on defense?
Biggest breakout player on defense is a bit tougher. Everybody’s looked at as so good already… I think CB Tharold Simon has the best shot at really “breaking out” though. While most of the defense quietly goes about their business (Brandon Mebane, Bobby Wagner don’t nearly get the recognition they deserve), LOB is the place to be for being noticed. Simon has had an outstanding Summer and camp and is ready to contribute. I think he’ll make a serious bid for regular playing time this preseason.
