I almost forgot to mention Broncos TE, Wesley Duke. I know, it's not kosher to think of him as the next Gates simply because he didn't play any college football, but the guy really looks like he might emerge as a playmaker in the Broncos passing attack. At 6'5", he has the size to be a factor in the red zone. Just a thought, you may want to take a late flier on him in a keeper league, just in case.

Drew Carter was a great work in progress this year. He stepped up at the end of the year. He was a little nervous this year and dropped a few passes due to lack of playing time. He will be solid next year. He has the size and speed and will work great with Steve Smith.

God, only if they'd let him play. I still can't figure out why they didn't give him some snaps this season after Collins/Tui fell apart. He showed a lot of poise in the preseason and seemed to have a grasp of the offense. With the weapons at his disposal, sky's the limit if things click in a year or two. Good call.

He might be gone, but Cedric Wilson seems to me like a guy who should be a starter. He's blazing fast and if roethl-something keeps improving then he could have nice numbers. He would have to win the job outright from Randle-El but I think he has at least a shot.

Another guy I wish had more opportunity is Arnaz Battle on SF. He got bogged down by injuries and I think he's a good complement to Lloyd.

Another guy I'd bring up is Koren Robinson, but he's probably on a lot of radars since he started returning kicks.

Isn't he the guy that was also coached by Gates TE coach?

Chargers TE coach moved to Denver coaching staff this past season.

I still like Eric Shelton, although it heavily depends on what the Panthers do in the off-season. If they decide to bring back the "old guy" or the "fragile guy" Shelton may have limited value.

I'm big on Koren Robinson next year. He really has the talent to be a #1 somewhere.

I'm also big on Samie Parker. I think he'll contibute heavily next season.

I'd like to see where Joe Jurevicius lands next year assuming the Seahawks can't retain him.

Lastly, and I know this is going to make people laugh, I think Ron Dayne has a real chance to go somewhere and prove himself. That's kind of a longshot however. :-o

KRob is an excellent call as well. The way that Burleson flopped this year and KRob looking like he finally got his stuff together could mean big things for him in a new offensive scheme in Minn. next year.

Great pick! Even better than the first one!

Another guy I'd add to that list is Josh McCown. He could very well be the starter for ARI or another team by next season.
