Redskins 2012 Breakout Players

Griffin would be an obvious choice for 2012 breakout player as a rookie, but which other Redskins could surprise this coming season?

Its always fun this time of year, right before training camp starts, to guess which Redskins will have breakout seasons in 2012. Rookies and vets alike can fall into this category. While its tough to project the impact a rookie can have on his new team, it's always fun to make guesses and statistical predictions for performance.

The most rewarding part to many fans is having a guy burst onto the scene, and make a significant impact on his team. We witnessed this last year with Ryan Kerrigan and Perry Riley. Coming into the season, no one really knew what to expect from both of these young players, yet each went on to have very productive seasons for the Redskins.

We enter 2012 with a roster full of youth and inexperience. Some of the old faces are gone, and new competition has been brought in to light a fire under this young group. There are many veterans who still have pleanty to prove, and there are young guys waiting in the wings if one of these vets should fail.

Tell me one or two players you feel will have a breakout 2012 season, and why. Feel free to add some stats and predictions, as they always make for interesting discussion.
