Potential Breakout Stars: Florida NFL Players By Sports Talk Florida News Desk July 5th 2014NFL season will be here before we know it and while it’s still the offseason, we are predicting who will have a successful year in the league.1. Johnathan CyprienStarting with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Johnathan Cyprien is one of those players that you don’t hear of very often. He had a pretty rough rookie year last season, but he still saw plenty of playing time.This year, fans can expect Cyprien to be more physical. He will be able to make a big impact by defending against the run and giving plenty of pressure to force a mistake.2. Mason FosterThe Tampa Bay Buccaneers are expected to have a spectacular year and Mason Foster could win “The Most Improved” award in our book.Mason’s first three season with the Bucs haven’t been anything special but this year, he has the assets to improve. With Lovie Smith’s defense, Foster will call the plays and have the opportunity to drop into pass coverage more than ever before.Expect Foster to make a direct impact on the team this year.3. Charles ClayThe Miami Dolphins tight end had a pretty exceptional season last year but it seems that he should be able to carry that out in 2014, too.Getting a significant boost from new offensive coordinator, Bill Lazor, will be the key to Clay’s ability to be a prime tight end this year.link
Foster will have his chance to silence his critics. But I have always felt he plays much better going forward than playing behind him. I expect Barron will see plenty of time in the seam. It’s going to be a busy place this season IMO.
“With Lovie Smith’s defense, Foster will call the plays and have the opportunity to drop into pass coverage more than ever before.”Coverage being his weakness, I'm not sure how this launches him to stardom.
3sk, all jokes aside, he is pretty fast for a guy at his position.However, like talib when he was here, he will take gambles. Most of his problems in coverage happen because of this imo. Hopefully lovie can cure him of that, or at least train him to make the break smoother.
