Soupermeister's Breakout Player of 2008 Poll
 
So Soup mentioned in another thread that if Mix can be a legit #3 WR than why draft a WR in round 1 (as has been rumored) when DE is, in his opinion, a much more glaring need.

Which got me thinking waht if Chris Wilson can emerge at DE? (I'll leave my main man Alex Buzbee out of this conversation)

So the question is-Who is More Likely To Have A Breakout Season in 2008? Anthony Mix or Chris Wilson?

Define "Breakout"? Who knows, that's what makes polls fun :)

Vote and Quarrel

Hmmm...Wilson. Only because he's going to play more snaps, and his job isn't really in danger. If he has a 5-7 sack season, I think we would define that as a break out year, and even if Mix sees significant playing time, we don't know exactly how good he is yet.

i went wilson too. wilson is a situational pass rusher so less would be expected of him. like gtripp said, 5-7 sacks would be great, and probably a lot more feasible than mix catching 60 balls it would take for many here to consider it a great year, due what seems to be high expectations

I went with Mix. Moss and Randle El havent proved to be too durable and I think that translates into more chances for Mix. Wilson is gonna be a good player but I think we go DE in the first round which will limit his PT.

Wilson will have 8 sacks this year, mark it down.

Mix will prove he is the big target the Redskins are looking for.

I went with Mix just because I feel like there's more of a need at WR and I love Chris Wilson, but don't know if he can be a 3-down starter.

I say neither. I really like Reed Doughtry.

Wilson. I think Mix will get his opportunities and I think he has ONE game where he makes like 3 catches so the man crushes will get even more hardcore. Wilson will at least play in most games and have .5 to 1 sack a game he plays in.

Why not both?

I think what we do in the draft will have a big impact on how much these guys get to play and in turn how much they will be able to breakout.

I like Wilson. The kid seems to have a good motor and with more opportunities will make some big plays this year.

i took wilson. but, for the record, we all have some idea of what wilson is capable of in our system. any judgement of what mix may achieve next year (assuming he even makes the roster) is completely baseless.

I went with Mix because of the Red zone difference. In this new offense i see him being a big factor where it counts, putting points on the board.

Chris Wilson. No question. He barely played until the end of the year and picked up 4 sacks in the last few games. He could develop into a good pass rusher.

Mix has done nothing. I'm still just totally baffled why this guy is getting all this press. I mean if the guy had a few good catches or maybe even a TD I could understand a little hype. All this is a bit silly IMO. How about HB Blades as a candidate with Rocky coming off a knee injury?

What's next, the Alex Buzbee breakout thread?

I don't think Wilson will ever be a 3-down starter. He's just too light (he's listed as 240lbs). If breakout means, "great situational player", perhaps - he could be the next Chris Clemons (let's hold onto this one).

I think Mix has the [I]greater[/I] potential for a real "breakout" year, in the sense of being a good everydown player. I guess I think he has a better shot of taking over the No. 2 WR spot than Wilson has of being an everydown player.

I love Wilson. I think he will improve within his role, but only to a point. If he gets more than 8 sacks I'd be surprised, and he will never be a factor in the run defense (in fact, he would probably always be a liability). On the other hand, I just don't know what to expect from Mix - is he the next Kenaan McCardell or Rod Smith? Maybe. If that's the case, Mix still has a couple of years before his "breakout" should be expected:

Rod Smith (undrafted):
Year Age Tm G GS Rec Yds Y/R TD
1995 25 DEN 16 1 6 152 25.3 1
1996 26 DEN 10 1 16 237 14.8 2
1997 27 DEN 16 16 70 1180 16.9 12
1998 28 DEN 16 16 86 1222 14.2 6

McKardell (12 rnd pick)(by Washington):
Year Age Tm G GS Rec Yds Y/R TD
1992 22 CLE 2 0 1 8 8.0 0
1993 23 CLE 6 3 13 234 18.0 4
1994 24 CLE 13 3 10 182 18.2 0
1995 25 CLE 16 5 56 709 12.7 4
1996 26 JAX 16 15 85 1129 13.3 3
1997 27 JAX 16 16 85 1164 13.7 5

Mix:
Year Age Tm G GS Rec Yds Y/R TD
2007 24 NYG 4 0 3 39 13.0 0
2007 24 WSH 5 0 0 0 0 0

Let's keep Mix around, b/c it looks like WR's who are going to "breakout" do it around age 26-27 and are in their 3rd-4th year.

Bottom line, I don't think either player will have a "breakout" year this year. Hopefully Mix progresses and is servicable (if we get >30 receptions out of him, I will be on the Mix man's bus NEXT year) and Wilson proves a cabable situational rusher.

Expecting much more from either player is just wishful thinking without any real rational basis - which, of course, is why SS will tell you that Mix is the new Monk and Wilson the reincarnation of Manley.
