    I cant pick just one. But I really am excited to see Dawkins play. I cant wait to see what impact he has on the leadership and intensity of this team. I also am looking forward to Knowshon. He could be "the future" and a franchise player if he lives up to his potential. Also, given the Oline that we have, he could have a great year.

    I actually expect the least this year from Ayers. I just think that he will have a lot to learn and there are a lot of nose tackles and left tackles in this league that can shut down great pass rushers. I think he will develop, but I dont expect him to be a breakout, runaway rookie of the year candidate.
    Remember: If you dont feed the trolls - they will go away! Neither logic nor a compelling argument will make a difference.

      My only real reasoning for wanting to see Swift is that I am a Nebraska homer and Swift was great for the Huskers the past few years. He now holds some of the more important receiving records and he was always a class act. I really want him to make it.
      Yeah - I'd love for him to make it too. He seems like a real solid guy and has the required size and strength to do damage after the catch. Hope he comes through

        Moreno for sure. I can't wait to see just how good he is. It has been a looong time since Denver has had a running back with his potential, plus they have a very good offensive line and a couple of good blocking tight ends to get him going.

          I would have to say, I am most excited to see Kyle Orton this year. Something tells me he'll do well.

            Defense

            Alphonso Smith and Robert Ayers to make an impact early.

            I would also like to see some Gems come out of Rookie Free Agency. The guys that didnt get drafted.

            Guys like Rulon Davis and Chris Backer.


            The comment earlier that we will only go as far as Orton can take us is only 33.3% accurate.

            Out Defense and Special teams need to improve dramatically.

            So with that said, I really hope to see some guys step out and really impact our D and kicking game. :go:

              There are so many new players on the roster right now (40) that it's hard to pick just one. Here's the list of all the new additions in case anybody is interested. Many of these won't make it, of course.

              34 Walker, Darius RB 5' 11" 205 23 3rd Notre Dame FA-'09


              I'll break my level of excitement into three tiers:

              1st tier: Knowshon, Orton, Dawkins, Ayers
              2nd tier: Phonz, Swift, Robinson, Baker
              3rd tier: Pedescleaux, Rulon Davis, Hill, Goodman, Quinn

              Overall, it's a tough call between Orton & Knowshon. Orton's play will be very crucial to the team's success and he will be highly scrutinized, but I'll go with Knowshon because the kid just oozes excitement when he has the ball.

                  It is tough to pick just 1, but my vote has to go with ORTON. I am seriously excited to see this guy play/throw. I was never this excited for Crybaby Cutler.

                      Right now, Orton. Moreno was my favorite draft prospect but I think he will do well like many RBs, the transition won't be that hard for him. Now, Orton is the key. And his task is pretty difficult. Not because he does not have the skillset, but because he only has 1 offseason to learn this offense which is being labeled as complex. Cassel had 4 offseasons in New England before he stepped on the field replacing Brady. And unlike last season, we will face lots of tough defenses in 2009.

                              I'm really looking forward to seeing Alphonso play...I hope he becomes an elite corner and proves all the doubters wrong.
