Who will the surprise player be in 2010?

Now that we have had two years to watch how Coach Paul Johnson puts together a team one of the questions is who will be this year's surprise football player?

Consider this.   As pundits talk today about how hard it will be for Tech to replace five key starters keep in mind that these same pundits did not have such high regard for these same players two years ago.  Likewise if your are a fan you may have known that Damarius Thomas was going to be good but it is doubtful that many fans could have predicted the kind of season he had.

So what about this year?  If Joshua Nesbitt has a year comparable to last year it will be expected.  But could he be ready for a breakout season that dazzles even die hard fans?  Or what about someone like Stephen Hill?  Most fans expect him to step it up a notch but could he exceed expectations?  And what about all of those B-backs?

If you have given any thought to this please share your insights.  We have previously unknown players who may start.  We have players who have been serviceable but who may finally breakout with a change of position.  Several have been waiting for their chance. We have a new defensive scheme that may showcase some real athletes. Coach Paul Johnson has a way of bringing a player up at just the right time and then letting their star shine.  Who do you see having a breakout season this year?
