Kyle Williams is one that probably wont get mentioned alot, but he will likely be the starting PR, unless we draft a PR to compete, and he showed alot of improvment last season while Ginn was injured. IMO he should have never been benched in favor of Ginn.
Even though PR/KR may be his ultimate calling...his return and Jenkins possible leap could mean a true embarrassment of riches at the WR position. Manningham will be back, Boldin is Boldin, Crabtree has become a #1. With a possible draft choice added to this stable...wow.
My pick, however, is Ahmad Brooks. As solid as he was, he faced a lot of doubles and was asked to do a lot more in coverage...the fact that he was as effective as he was without the benefit of much rest, tells me he will be even better next season when Cam Johnson, Fleming and Haralson are all healthy to spell him and Aldon. I won't say I expect it, but I would not be surprised to see a 10 sack season from Brooks being able to stay fresh this season.
Honorable mention to Kendall Hunter (Gore's true successor)
