POLL: Which Chargers Player Will Break Out in 2014?


There has been a lot of Senior Bowl talk on Bolt BEat lately, so had to bring it back to the mother land and talk more about the Chargers current roster. Which player are you expecting to break out in 2014?

There are a number of things that are going to happen in the offseason, but this would be an early look at some possible break out performers that are on the roster.

Ryan Mathews broke out in 2013. He had a huge year for the Chargers and showed that he can carry the team on his back in the running game. We had been waiting on that for a while from him. Melvin Ingram had a bit of a breakout party in his return from his injury. We didn’t see that type of impact from Melvin in his rookie season.

 

Who will breakout in 2014? And the nominees are…

Ladarius Green

Is this finally his time? Will he get the opportunity to get on the field often and become the threat that we all think that he can be? It seems that the time is right for Green to take the torch from Antonio Gates and run with it. Gates is running out of steam and could give more time to the future star.

Manti Te’o

Te’o didn’t have the greatest rookie year. He was just a solid contributor on the roster that was learning his way through the league. He had some bad moments, but we could see his progression and see him getting better throughout the year. Will he become a playmaker in 2014?

Jahleel Addae

Is Addae ready to take on the starting safety spot full time? He may have some cotmpetition coming in from the draft. He stepped in nicely at the end of the season and a full offseason can only make him better.

Vincent Brown

There were some high hopes for Vincent Brown before he went down with an ankle injury. He came back last season and was able to play in all games, but he didn’t have the impact that we had hoped from him. Will he be able to bounce back?

Kendall Reyes

We were hoping that Reyes would break out in 2013 with his first year as a starter, but he disappeared a little bit. With a possible new nose tackle and some added talent to the defensive side of the ball, Reyes might be ready to make an impact this season.

    I’m thinking all of the above , was going to exclude VB but he is a smart guy and should know the playbook by the start of the season

  • serg21

    Going with teo played with a hurt foot all year and barely got surgery on it

    • 619chargers4life

      He had surgery ?

      • gpack

        just had surgery in the past couple of days. Played with a broken foot all year long.

        • Gunnar Martin

          What are your sources…

          • gpack

            manti teos personal instagram account. he stated that he had surgery on his foot that he injured at the end of preseason.

          • Gunnar Martin

            Dang. That sucks. Hope he fully recovers this time. Thx for the info.

        • 619chargers4life

          That’s crazy .

  • Rob Base

    Green is my vote! Who you got?

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      Green for sure… Thinking Te’o will have a good year also

  • Julien Bélair

    I go with Addae I have high hopes on him. He could surprise us all

  • Trey P

    It sure wontt be Reyes im hoping we can get another De or bennett from Seattle. What about lissemore did yall see the denver film on him hr could be a good back up.Cam is guaranteed gone.

    • CALiFORNiAkiD

      Reyes and Liuget need a real NT.

  • Nate

    Shareece Wright

    • Gunnar Martin

      That’s a good one too. He really impressed me the last half of the year.

    • CALiFORNiAkiD

      I’m glad some of us appreciate Shareece.
      I think he’s going to be very good next season.

  • FitzWilly

    Not one vote for CBJ
    for shame :)

  • navw21

    I have to go with Reyes. Liuget stepped way up from year two to year three so hopefully Reyes will follow suit.

  • Dave

    I go with Addae. I am still wondering how he went undrafted.. Pretty solid college career and highlights.

    • Derek

      I think this is the product of john pagano with an assist from Tt! Maybe a lil magic mike with the philosophy “figure out our players strengths and put them in the best position to use them.” Or something like that. He was ok in college and the speed of the players and the speed at which the game develops is very different.

  • CALiFORNiAkiD

    Going with Addae.

  • Sergio Quintero

    Ladarius on offense, put me down for 45 catches 600 yards 7 TD’s, on defense I’m surprised nobody mentioned Melvin Ingram he’s my choice, put me down for 65 tackles, 10 sacks, 16 TFL.

    • Gunnar Martin

      No predictions! They’re jinxes! Delete delete!

  • http://www.BoltBeat.com/ Peter Thompson

    Derek Cox or Steve Williams

    • 619chargers4life

      I keep forgetting we have Steve Williams. And that’s another one of my reasons I feel we’re not going CB in round 1 .

      • Lee

        SS would probably be a better pick

    • Marcus Amure

      I like steve williams but dont know why they would keep cox get rid of him and get someone else in FA

  • Derek

    Off topic but I think we should trade our 6th and 7th rd picks for another 5th or 4th. For quality depth that won’t spend the season on the practice squad
