We won't have two players win the Heisman so close together...Shoe Lace is going to win it as a Junior when he is used as a slot and averages 20+ yards per reception, throws a few completions from screens, and causing an unending torent of mayhem for opposing defenses en route to a national title apprearance and 45 ppg as a team. He will be the offensive equivalent of The Waterboy!

Everyone seems to be going Ryan or Vinopal to overachieve. I think Davion Rogers is the guy to watch. At 6'6" and 210, I think he'll wind up 20-30 pounds heavier. His fake 40 is 4.6. I suspect it could become a real number with Barwis. So, a 6"6' 235# linebacker with 4.6 speed? Hmmm. If he's got heart and is coachable, that is a substantial upside.

Start as a Freshman: Cullen Christian - With our depth, I think he is a near lock to start. Not sure if it will be the opening game, but at least half of the season.

Surprise [offense]: Stephen Hopkins - I think this is one of our most underrated commits. Hopkins is an absolute bruiser.

Surprise [defense]: Courtney Avery - He seems to have more "game speed". I think Avery has the potential to really contribute to the team, much faster than we expect. He might not deliver bone-crushing hits for the highlight reel but the kid is a sure tackler...something we have missed the past couple of years.

Overachieve: I'm also going to go with Davion Rogers. He has the potential to be a monster with the Barwis program. Rogers has a good frame and could be a major beneficiary of a redshirt year.

Be the "First off the Bus" (a.k.a. most physically intimidating): Has to be Marvin Robinson. Nothing else to say other than he is a freak.

Boom or bust: Jibreel Black. I think he goes either way. Rankings vary on the kid. I don't think his offer list is as good as some others make it out to be. Don't get me wrong though, I'm extremely happy we landed Black. I love this kid's motor.

Take a redshirt: Jordan Paskorz. I'm not going to say any WR for this one. RR has a very open competition and there is no telling how some of the WR's will perform. I simply don't think Paskorz will be ready to contribute on the field as a freshman. 100% redshirt.

Switch positions: Does Josh Furman count? Ah, then I have to agree on Conelius Jones. By saying that, I don't necessarily feel that he WILL change...I just think he has the best chance to. Most of our guys will end up where they were recruited for. I personally think Jones stays at QB...but may be used in weird packages.

Dominate youtube: Has to be 100%, without a doubt...Demar Dorsey. Cissoko brought an annoying version of "swag". Dorsey has that infectious version of it. I can't guarantee his success as a football player but I think he is going to entertain the hell out of us.

Be a team captain: Ricardo Miller. No other answers are acceptable.

Be the #1 pick: Devin Gardner. We racked up on S, CB and WR this year. Those typically aren't No. 1 draft picks. We landed good kids at DE and DT but not elite. That alone gives Gardner the best chance to win this superlative.

Win the Heisman: The only school to have a defensive player win the Heisman...will do it AGAIN with Cullen Christian. The only way he does it is if Dorsey teaches him a thing or two. Woodson had that swagger...Christian will have to get some too.
