My Top 5 Offensive & Defensive Studs For 2015

Defense

Adrian Clayborn

A freak with a crazy motor when he gets going. I think if he puts in a full season, he would be considered for a pro bowl spot.

Brooks Reed

Strong as a bull and tough as nails. Will be an every down player and will surprise a lot of people with his pass rush. He may not get all the sacks but he will move the QB.

Justin Durant

I watch every Cowboys game and this guy showed up every game he played in. He was always that guy who made the game changing interception or fumble. Great playmaker.

Ra'sheade Hageman

Freak and a monster who is just about to explode in the NFL. He needed a man like Quinn to teach him the ways and Hageman will dominate. I think he could be up there with the likes of McCoy and Suh if he gets his chance.

Malliciah Goodman

Another Freak who hasn't tapped his true potential yet. The length of his arms and hands are enough to get him space. I think Goodman is going to explode if given the chance. He has amazing length to get to the QB.

Offense

Devonta Freeman

He may not put up CJ2k type of year but he reminds me of CJ just slower but quick as all ****. Another talent who hasn't seen his full potential tapped but he is a difference maker.

Jacob Tamme

He is a sneaky tight end who can get down field. Justin Peele had a great year in 2008 as the featured tight end. If Peele can do it, Tamme can do it. That's exactly the type of tight end Matt Ryan needs. That sneaky guy who defenses lose track of.

Justin Hardy

This guy is ready. He needs the ball at least 6 times or more a game. He will be a dangerous threat through out the game.

James Stone

People don't appreciate how great James Stone is based off his draft status. Stone is incredibly smart and physical. He knows where to place his hands and where to set up for a block. I know people think I am being a homer but Stone will prove how great he is.

Jake Rodgers

This guy is the real deal and he has the right mind set. You can build this guy into your franchise RT. Forget draft status and look at his size, talent, toughness and grit. He will be a great player for the Falcons.

Stone will be lucky to make the roster.

Goodman has been, and will always be, a zero.

Freeman can't block. He is an average runner. He is very mediocre.

Hardy is a slow-ish rookie who will struggle to create separation against NFL db's.

6/10 isn't bad, though.

Hmmm.

Totally agree on Clayborn. Don't know that both Reed and Durant will be "studs" but I hope they both play most of the games and that they both play to (or better) than their previous level of play.

I'm starting to buy into the Ricardo hype. And I think Hageman is going to take a big step forward.

On the offense, it's the usual suspects but I do favor Devonta as a breakout candidate.

I'm not sure where the "Freeman can't block" thing picked up legs but it's a pretty silly assertion, IMO.

I certainly appreciate your rosy outlook tho.

Stone is an obvious backup, even if he doesn't start. Unless you're assuming that UDFA center will explode, he's making the roster. I think making absolute statements about any rookie like you did Hardy here is a bit ridiculous too.

From the several whiff-blocks that almost got Matt Ryan killed.

I'm actually guardedly optimistic. I still think our talent level is pretty poor. However, Quinn has certainly put in place a plan to improve the roster. I am realistic enough to realize that we may not see an appreciable improvement in his first year. As long as we see marked improvement, I'll be very happy?

Do you work in the NFL? I highly doubt you are qualified to talk about talent levels. I wish you would just go root for another team. Who needs your pessimistic crap here.

Looks like DQ his excited about Devonta. I think I will align myself to DQ not your silly conjecture.

STFU crapbag. NONE of us work in the NFL. And I agreed with 6 of his 10 assessments.

This post took some time and I can appreciate that but you keep using the phrase "forget his draft status"

It's hard for anyone to do that because the professional NFL talent scouts and General Managers looked at these guys compared to other guys and said, "nah. We don't think he will be successful enough to draft in our first 6 rounds or at all." Now I understand that every once in a while one of these late round or UDFA makes a name for themselves but almost all of them end up cut or career backups.

The chances that we have James Stone, Ryan Schraeder, AND Jake Rodgers all end up beasting out and being staples of our O-line is slim to nil. Schraeder will be the best we get out of that crop IMO. I hope I'm wrong but I don't see anything in Stone or Rodgers that is that special.

There are quite a few HoF or perrenial Pro Bowl players that went undrafted. It is certainly not the expected norm, but it can happen.

My knock on Stone is not based on draft status. He just didn't strike me as starter material.
