RB-Griffin, D Davis, Westbrook (can he do what he did last year on more carries?)
WR- Chad Johnson (can he suceed with Palmer holding the reins?
QB- Bulger (can he cut down on turnovers?)
TE- Shockey (it will be his third season, if he doesn't start scoring this may be a trend and not a fluke.)

No ones's mentioned Cory Dillon. I think he could have a huge year finishing off drives & running the clock out when NE is up big. Or he could get injured or pout when he doesn't get the ball. Definitely a high risk/high reward in my opinion.

i'm with canadian cheesehead and heat24 on the first two. vick and faulk have to be the biggest risk reward guys. i think it's hard to pick a te 'cause where's the huge risk, but winslow gets my vote over shockey 'cause the rewards are similar but the risk on winslow is bigger. butch davis is ff death and anybody who misses training camp over salary, talks crazy smack and hasn't even caught a pass yet is just asking to fall on his ass. for wr there are so many i can't count. so many of the 2nd rd and 3rd round wrs have huge question marks and could be major boom or busts. just for where he's being draft i'll take t.o. over c.johnson. Only 'cause T.O. in PHI could have R.Moss numbers no problem, but of course he could destroy the whole team within the first quarter of play.

RB--Dillon. Alot of folks have him slotted from around 9-15. If he tanks, alot of people will have overpayed for his services.

WR--TO. Again, he's got the talent to be top 2 at his position but new situation may not translate well to where he will be picked.

TE--Shockey. Take him with caution. If he stays healthy, Gonzo like production is almost a certainty (maybe not TD wise) but injury questions abound.

QB--Bulger. Can he get the TDs up and INTs down to go along with crazy yardage or is he going to be the tenative guy we saw the 2nd half of last year?

Thomas Jones is make or break this year. This is his 3rd gig as starting RB. He has yet to produce in a consistant manner.

QB
Vick (really needs to stay healthy and prove he can throw)

RB
Dillon (old)
Domanick (injury/workload)
Faulk (old/injury)

WR
Owens (inconsistent last year, is also aging)
Plaxico (are you good or not?)
Stallworth (time to put up or shut up)
Porter (could excel as a starter in a downfield passing game)
Lelie (They're saying Darius Watts might take his job as early as this year)
K-Rob (Don't talk smack until you prove you can back it up)
D-Jax (Hot one year, cold the next, suspect hands)

TE - Shockey (Can't find the end zone/can't stay healthy/is on a bad team)
