Last week, I looked at the biggest questions facing AFC East offenses. This week, it’s time to turn our attention to the biggest questions on the defensive side of the ball.

As we count down the days until training camps start around the NFL, many fans and teams are starting to analyze the pieces that make up their roster and ask themselves what the season has in store.

After I looked specifically at the Buffalo Bills last week, it’s time to turn our attention to the other teams in the AFC East and examine the questions they have to answer in order to reassure their fan bases that this season might not be one to forget.

Every year in the NFL, players seem to burst onto the scene, grabbing the collective attention of fans and opposing teams.

Last season, Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt and New England Patriots running back Steven Ridley were among the players who built off of early career performances and exploded in a big way, proving themselves to be legitimate NFL stars and players that opposing teams need to gameplan for.

Predicting who is going to breakout is an inexact science, but certainly a fun game to play. Looking at players’ overall skill sets, college pedigree, brief professional experience and the opportunity presented by their 2013 situation, I’ve selected an offensive and defensive player from each team in the AFC East who I think is primed for a breakout season.

If you’re a Buffalo Bills fan, you have many reasons to be excited for the 2013 NFL season. With a new head coach (Doug Marrone) comes change and upgrade on both sides of the ball. The new offense could be led by a promising rookie quarterback prospect (E.J. Manuel), while the receiving corps will be bolstered by new playmakers including second-round pick Robert Woods, and one of the league’s most explosive playmakers, C.J. Spiller, returns to the backfield. The new defensive scheme — called the “amoeba” by some — will create more opportunities for playmakers like Mario Williams, Kyle Williams, Stephon Gilmore and Jairus Byrd to swing games in the Bills’ favor.

As the 2013 NFL Draft came to a close last night so did my time as editor, writer, and scout for this site. In the last two years it has been one heck of a ride and I can say I leave this site knowing that it has become something I’m proud of. When James first approached me three summers ago with this crazy idea I have no clue if it would actually work, let alone morph into what is now nine team sites with more coming this summer. I owe James everything when it comes to my little piece of success and exposure. (more…)
