Wayne Gallman, RB
I put Gallman in the honorable mentions, but obviously he should have a breakout season. There has been a lot of positive feedback about this former 4-star, but I chose to include another running back in the list. Gallman could very well be the team’s leading rusher, but more fans have come to expect that at this point. Which running back did I include in the list that could be a surprise breakout star?
Shaq Lawson, DE
I chose not to include Lawson on the list because of the depth at defensive line. Also, for a guy who received Freshman All-American honors a season ago, it’s hard to prove that he would surprise many people with a good season. With a lot of experience on the defensive line, Lawson might not see as much action as he deserves, but expect him to have a solid season.
Artavis Scott, WR
I’m not saying Artavis Scott will have the type of freshman season Watkins did, but this guy could come in and contribute right away. With a few questions about which guys will step up, this is a good opportunity for Scott to show his potential.
