Who's your breakout candidate for 2013?
 
Who's taking that big step forward this year? Last year outside of the obvious ones like RG3 and Morris we had guys like Rob Jackson, Logan Paulsen, and Kai Forbath who all stepped up and made some huge contributions.

Who's going to do it this year? Jarvis Jenkins? Keenan Robinson? Hankerson? Aldrick Robinson? Maybe one of the rookies?

Brandon Merriweather.

DeVery Henderson :)

Seriously though. All the names mentioned are good choices. I'd add Richard Crawford and Tom Compton as options.

Forced to pick one, I'll say Keenan Robinson

I would say Compton, who IMO will arise as a real RT.

My other choice would be Paul as a receiver. I think he will fix the dropsies.

Jarvis Jenkins.

I haven't seen him yet this year but the knee brace is off and Haslett is liking what he has seen from Jenkins during OTA's. Now that he's healthy and he has a year of experience under his belt, I think he could break out.

Leonard Hankerson.

I've loved the guy ever since he came out of Miami, and he's been decent, but I think this year is the year he breaks out and becomes the number two behind Garcon. His dropping problem was always way overblown, and now he has a full offseason under his belt. On top of that, Shanahan is impressed with him too.

Do rookie defensive backs count? :D Without knowing how the depth chart shakes out in the secondary, I can't pick one yet. Could be any of them.



I'd like to see Aldrick Robinson used to his fullest potential as WR and on returns. He's my offensive choice.

On defense, I'll say Perry Riley. He had great numbers last year but I think he'll improve even more and become one of the top LBs at least in the NFC East. With Orakpo and Kerrigan back on the field together and demanding attention, the other LBs will have better matchups. I say 6 sacks, a ton of pass deflections and he'll get his first career INT.

On offense, Josh Morgan. First time fully healthy in a while, should have explosiveness back for the first time as a Redskin. 60 catches.

On defense, Jarvis Jenkins. Again, plenty of time removed from a big injury. Word is he's got his explosiveness back too.

I'd say Brandon Meriweather because I think he'd be huge for us, but it's hard to call a 2-time pro-bowler a breakout guy. Maybe a comeback guy.

Compton on offense, Crawford on defense/special teams

Not overblown. Must be fixed.

Shanahan praised Beck and Grossman too. His offseason praise is worth about as much as my advice on relationships - either zilch or below zilch. That said, I don't get the love for him. I've seen people say look at the end of last season, so I did, in the last 7 games he had: 2,1,1,4,2,1,1 catches. Garcon had: 3,4,8,5,6,7,3. But even more, in the games where Garcon wasn't in, and we needed a player to step up, like Hankerson is "going to", he managed to have 1 catch against Pittsburgh, and 3 at Carolina.

Maybe I am just being obstinate. On [URL="http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/wr"]Football Outsiders[/URL] website PGarcon ranks 39th, RWayne ranks 40th, and Hankerson ranks 41st. He also has very respectable catch rate of 67%, Garcon was 66%, and Wayne was 55%. So, I hope he proves me wrong, that would be grrreeeaatt!

Slightly surprised no mentions of either of the Jordan safeties, or Tanard for that matter
