Green Bay Packers: Allen Lazard WR
Allen Lazard has a lot of doubters, and definitely isn’t one of the most physically gifted receivers in the NFL. Lazard’s Breakout will mainly occur based off him being Aaron Rodgers #1 target, and all receivers who are Rodgers #1 target always flourishes. From Lazard I would expect around 80 REC, 975 YDS, 7 TD.
Minnesota Vikings: Irv Smith Jr. TE
Irv Smith Jr. will come into the Regular Season as the Starting Tight End for the Vikings for the first time and is poised to breakout. Every season Smith Jr. has played he has improved game by game, and his breakout season was supposed to be last season but unfortunately he suffered a season-ending injury in training camp. My projections for Smith Jr. would be 65 REC, 780 YDS, 8 TD.
Chicago Bears: Jaylon Johnson CB
Jaylon Johnson had what most people would consider a breakout year last season, but he will elevate his game to a different level this season. Johnson slides back into the Cornerback #1 role for the Bears, and has all the tools to be a top-tier CB in the NFL.
Detroit Lions: Alim McNeill DT
Alim McNeil showed very positive flashes of athleticism last season, The change to a 4-man front should allow McNeill to have more opportunities to face single blocking as a pass rusher.
