Default Which player will make the most improvement?

One of the keys to how a team does is player development as Dabo talks about a lot. Which players do you think will make the most improvement next season?

To me Ladson & Ngata are young stars that didnít get their shot to shine this year. They were both snakebitten from the start of fall camp and it continued through the season.



Who else will improve I donít know but thereís a long list of guys who we need to develop.

- About everyone at safety
- All the young DTís
- All the young OL

Thatís a starter list but thereís much more

I'm gonna go with DK. His decision to come back shows some maturity. I think he turns it on and is a 1-2 rd pick next year.

Simpson. He played a good bit but a lot of comments were made about him not really having a full understanding of where he was supposed to be. He will also be able to get stronger.

This^ I think Simpson could be like a DoD. He just needs to learn position.

I think youíre right. He made plays based on his talent. Being in the right place at right time could make him a defensive MVP candidate.

I agree with the majority... I think simpson is going to be fantastic in 2021. Breese was very good and will be an absolute force in 2021 too

I agree with this. Ladson and Ngata will come out healthy and on fire.

I think the most important one to improve is D.J. for obvious reasons.

If he maintains his 400+ yards/game average and 0 int's, we should do pretty well.

You beat me to it. DJ will be the most improved. He was a statue in the two games he started (because of injury and play-calling to protect him). I think people will be shocked at how good he looks in the run game next year starting with the Georgia game. Some Georgia LBs are about to get punished!

Simpson is a solid choice like many have said. I also think Booth will make some big strides, we saw flashes of greatness this year. I think he continues to improve and become a consistent shutdown corner.

IF XT comes back, it'll be his time to make some money. And I know that's a huge IF all around.

Some of the WRs will make huge strides. We have so many to choose from, I can't pick just one but believe some will definitely be strong.
