Last year's draft including many powerhouse players that have already brought energy to their respective franchise's. Looking into this slideshow are the five sophomore players that are looking to put their talents to the next level this coming season and establish themselves among the league's elite.
Call me crazy but looking back to Murphy's rookie season with the Raiders he still had some fair stats among a poor receiving corps. With JaWalrus Russell gone and Jason Campbell in, Murphy has a strong chance at posting some solid numbers this season if he holds onto the ball more.
Britt stuggled in the beginning of his rookie season last year. Of course, that was when the Titans started off 0-6 to their season. But now with a revived Vince Young to start a fresh season Britt can finally have a reliable quarterback to throw him the ball with Justin Gage. Kenny is coming into this season on positive terms with Young and is finally giving them the receiver they have been looking years for.
After Kurt Warner retired, the whole entire offense of the Arizona Cardinals shifted towards the running game. The Cardinals still don't believe in Matt Leinart for the future until he proves otherwise. In his second season in the NFL, a lot is going to be excepted from Wells as he will be one of the main focal points of the team. With durability and injuries a concern, Wells will be looking to answer those concerns with productivity this season.
Lets face it, Greene is the most NFL ready back in his draft class. Not only because of his age, but because of his durability and strength. Oh yeah, don't forget the fact that he has probably the best offensive line in the league. Greene should be ready for a huge season despite the Jets getting Ladianian Tomlinson and drafting Joe McKnight.
I am a Raiders fan, and everytime I look at Crabtree I just think about what could have been. But his talent came with a cost of sitting through games of his rookie season and possibly re-entering the NFL Draft. He was scouted as the best receiver they have seen since Larry Fitzgerald and his talent just can't be passed on. Now Michael is still Michael no matter what drama he causes in his NFL career. He is still one of the best young wide receivers in the game today and with Alex Smith back under center, Crabtree should post over 1,000 yards with at least five or more scores.
