This is sort of an easy one, because it would be almost impossible for Evan Mathis to perform any better this year than he did in 2011.
The veteran offensive lineman was rated as the best guard in the game by Pro Football Focus.
He was a better run-blocker than anyone in football and a better pass-blocker than most tackles.
I'm not saying that was a fluke, but it represented a massive spike in production compared to previous seasons, which was a little odd considering that Mathis had been around for seven years. He'd always been good, not special.
He wasn't valued much in Cincinnati and only earned a one-year deal last year in Philly.
With a new contract in tow, will Mathis take a step back and return to being simply "good" in 2012, or will he prove that there's something about Howard Mudd's unit that brings out the best in him?
We'll see, but he'll turn 31 this year and he does have an injury history, so a drop-off wouldn't be a surprise.
