And if you're right with those guys you can give out huge I told you so's to everyone.
Plus, it'd be great to knock Spillman's lazy ass off the team, followed by Dahl next year (I think they keep Dahl around for experience this year, but dude sucks. McCray is every bit the athlete Spillman is, so he can assume a big ST role, and he's reportedly already putting in more study time than Spillman ever has).
That said, my guy is Ellington. Logically, he shouldn't have a big role this year, but I can't help but be excited about the guy, and he's so athletic/instinctive/dedicated/hardworking, that it's tough to bet against him.
My logical choice is Ward. Love that kid, but I'm scared of metatarsal injuries. Some of those never get better. Here's hoping he has sufficient blood flow to provide for significant bone repair. That kid has exceptional ability, instincts, hands, and timing. He should be a big player for years.
