Alex Green GB - Value will shoot up if Grant is cut, which is still highly possible.
How do you see that as "Highly Possible"? He's rushed for +1200 yds in 08 and 09, and probably would have had at least 1000 in 2007 when he rushed for 950 in only 7 games as a starter. Dude has been nothing short of consistant and has shown to be a great back.
If anything, Jackson will be out the door and Green and Starks would be battling for the #2 spot, in what I believe will become a RBBC.
My thoughts on some rookies...not in any particular order
AJ Green WR CIN- Rookie QB if Palmer doesn't come back, and Ochocinco "mentoring" this kid....I think its going to be 3-4 years before this guys potential is actually shows.
Julio Jones WR ATL- What's NOT to like about this guy? Other than he drops a lot of passes.... I think he'll end up taking over the #2 WR spot for ATL within the year over Jenkins. A great QB in Ryan and Roddy White on the other side, as long as he can hold onto the ball his speed and rout running paired with his size, he has some very big potential.
Jonathan Baldwin WR KC- IMHO, he's got the perfect supporting cast to become a WR with immediate impact in the NFL and for KC. He's got the size that a QB needs to just throw up the ball and his WR to go get along with big play capability. Cassell also tossed over 3000 yds, 27 TDs and only 7 INTS last year...its like those sprinkles you use on cake, you don't have to use them...but it makes it sooo much better.
Austin Pettis WR StL - Here's a guy who's no stranger to hard work, had to prove himself at Boise St. And With a limited amount of WR talen in the Lou, this young man has a great oppertunity to make an impact if not this year, then probably within 2 years. He's also 6'3 and 209 pounds...thats a pretty big target for a 2nd year QB. If he can get on the same page with Bradford, this could be a future combo that people talk about for years.
