    I'll take Dennis Andrews for our future Alex. (Godhigh is still my favorite for top performing AB of 2013)

    There is something about his running style that I like. I have some spring film where he is using his hands to bat defenders out of his way. He cuts hard and without notice. He has a decent frame and is fast enough to beat defenders to the outside.

    I think we have a great tool box at AB, but my top picks are:

    1. Godhigh
    2. Days
    3. Andrews

    I think Hill, Bostic, and Zeon will play more than Andrews in 2013 given their experience.

    I am not sure were Perkins fits as i think he has skills, just not enough experience.

    Agree with Andrews about future.

    Zenon has some ground to make up...

    Godhigh is a lock to start...other is Bostic/Days. Andrews has a real shot to win the 4th spot.

    Mr. Andrews was already my pick for surprise player of the year for this coming season so he is my obvious first choice. I tweeted this to him and told him not to make me look bad and he tweeted back that he would do his best not to disappoint LOL. After that I think it's a crap shoot as we have a lot of pretty fast and talented guys there , it's just who steps up.

    I'm not too worried about A-Back this year. I don't think I've seen an Orwin or an Ant yet, but Robbie
    Godhigh reminds me of Roddy, a little drop off in blocking but probably has better balance and a better ability to make the first guy miss. I think BJ, Deon, Zenon and Days are all a step up from Embry and Marcus. I like what I've seen from Dennis Andrews but I'm not sure that he's beat-out any of those guys yet.

    The guy I think has the best chance of being the break-out A-Back this year is Charles Perkins.

    I think CP will break out this year too. If he could play to his potential, that would provide another threat that would spread the defense even more.

    I hope that with some of the increased variance in pre-snap deployment we're seeing this year, that Perkins finds some ways to contribute in the pistol packages. I think thats much closer to what he's used to...
