Who ya got?
I'm going to list a trio of guys who I think could fit that title...
The first is a QB who is in a fight for the starting job out West. If he wins the job, I think Trojan QB Cody Kessler has all the tools (and weapons) to be an exceptional QB THIS year. Being that he hasn't started a game in his career, college highlights are hard to come by but he has been exceptional during camps and during the Spring Game.
The second guy on my list is a reason I think Kessler can be so good early. This guy is the next great WR for the Trojans, Nelson Agholor. Nelson has the tools and work ethic to have an impact similar to Marqise Lee's last year. I don't think he will have the gaudy stats Lee did because Lee is still there, but a 1,200 yard, 10 TD season would not shock me at all.
(Nelson also made some good plays in the Spring Game.)
The last guy on my list is a guy who should be more familiar to a lot of you. It's North Carolina's Quinshad Davis. Davis is a guy who has some great physical tools. He's a big target, with exceptional hands and good route running. I fully expect him to surprise many and be a top five WR this year. If he makes improvements on his strength to fight through the jam at the line of scrimmage, and works on improving his explosion off the snap he could be a VERY special receiver.
So who's your guy, or guys who can be breakout players this season??
