IMO I think that Escobar and Harris will have their best years on the offensive side.

On the defensive side I think Anthony Hitchens will help out our LBs especially with Lee getting put on IR

IF Lance Dunbar stays healthy, he'll have a big season. He won't lead the team in rushing or anything, but he'll have some highlight reel plays.

I think it'll be J.J. Wilcox on defense. Having a full offseason at a position he's still relatively new at will help him big time.

I'm goin to put my money on Crawford on defense. This kid is built for this system. He is goin to be moved around from all 4 spots on the line to be put into some very favorable match ups.

On Offense, Escobar is goin to shut up his critics. Playing from the slot and outside will get him on slot of 1 on 1's against smaller DB's.

Offensive

Terrance Williams ~ His work ethic seems to be drawing raves. Don't think he hits 1000yd mark, but think he improves enough that double teaming Dez becomes harder.

Defensive

Mo Claiborne ~ More hoping here than anything. Talent is there, just needs some confidence.

I concur with your selections.

I also like the choices of Terrance Williams, Lance Dunbar, and JJ Wilcox.

I'm going to wait until I see it from Mo.

Harris has already broken out, as a player. But as an offensive weapon, he won't see enough snaps to have a big boost in productivity.

Offense-T. Williams. He surprised me as a rookie. I think if he can take the next step, along with Beasley and Harris (Dez and Witten go without saying) our recieving corp willbe down right scary.

Defense- I'm looking for Carter to break out this year. He showed some real ability to hit in his rookie year but seems to have gotten lost in the learning curve of playing in the NFL. Hopefully he has caught up to it and takes the next step.

Well I guess whoever had D. Lawrence wins. He broke out, literally.

Gavin Escobar will have a nice year. I'm thinking 35 to 45 catches as a split option with Witten, Bryant and Williams on the field with him. Put Dunbar in the backfield for the threat of a screen, wheel or flare, and that group sounds like a pretty potent passing formation.

I fully expect Escobar to be used more in the slot than either of our 'third' receiver options. He is a better matchup offensively for us, and provides a better utility in the blocking game than beasley and co. as well, should we run from a 3 or 4 wide formation.

Defensively, I really like Tyrone Crawford as a potential 'quietly having a good season' kinda guy. He can work from theinside or the outside, has a wide array of moves to disengage blockers vs the run, and possesses some awesome leg drive to collapse pockets. While he probably won't have the tangible stat line that most will look for, with tackles, sacks, and TFLs - I fully expect to see him disrupting the pocket often, forcing runners to change lanes and take short losses, being a vital guy in a rotation all across that line.
