For some on this list, it looks like a season filled with more bench splinters. A few others have key roles, but could be elbowed aside by newcomers or more productive players. Whether they make their mark, or at least contribute, is up to them and the Gods of football injuries.
Matt Dunham - How many years have we heard this is the guy who broke Herschel Walker's Georgia high school record for TDs (an amazing 111)? At 6-2, 255 he looks like the model fullback, but apparently practices like a Model-T. Now at TE/H-back, Matt's the only Junior listed here. Why? Because if he doesn't emerge this year, he'll fall behind too many younger, more talented guys.
Rodney Gallon - An undersized LB who filled in adequately a few times, Rodney has to perform a Spinach-chomping Popeye-like transformation to see the field this year.
Paul Griffin - After a medical redshirt in '06 and so-so '07, this is Paul's money year. Play with the intensity of a Darnell Dockett and earn a high draft status, or be overtaken by true freshman Moses McCray.
Kenny Ingram - He's a safety. He's a linebacker. He's a friggin' mystery so far. Kenny has the size and the potential. He also has precious little time to break out of his special teams typecasting.
