Breakout year for which 49er player?

I keep reading about other teams having players poised for breakout years (or that next big step) which will make that team dangerous:

1. Patrick Peterson for AZ
2. Robert Quinn for STL
3. Okung for SEA

Are examples. But don't hear much about the 49ers having such a player(s). I would say Bowman, and Aldon to some degree, did it for us last year. But who do you thing has that potential for us this year? ASmith, Crabs, Culliver? I doubt it will be Jenkins in his first year. It's hard to predict a rookie as having a breakout year, it's more for other players that made strides last year and now can jump into key player roles.

Go get em, Alex !!!!
Crabtree will go for 1000 yards this year.
T. Brown
Crabtree


I would've said Tarell Brown, but after a slow start in the first couple of games, Brown really did breakout last season. The only other player defensively that might be deemed a "breakout" is Culliver.
love the way how hyped peterson is because of his punt returning when he sucked as a cb

He seemed to be finding his place towards the end of the season. He was only a rookie. I think he's gonna be pretty good.

As far as us? I have to say Alex t.b.c.h. I think he's going to really turn some heads this year. Especially with the best WR core he's had, and a full offseason with a competant coaching staff.

I hope it's craps, and if not, adios at end of this yr.

He was a rookie starter on a pretty bad secondary and did a pretty decent job
I like it to be Crabtree.
alex boon and crabby patty
I'd go withj T. Brown or Crabs.

T. Brown had a sensational year which was overshawowed by bigger names on our team. His coming out party might be 2012.
