Point/counter point: Which Bronco player will have the biggest breakout season?

Mike Prater: The better question is - which one won't? The depth chart is loaded with underclassmen (60 percent for the Idaho State game) and the hype has been strong for so many of these players. Kellen Moore is an easy choice, but let's leave him out of the equation. With that said, I'll start with D.J. Harper, the sophomore speedster from Texas. He'll struggle to get carries in a loaded backfield, but I get the feeling that he'll make every one of those carries a prime-time show (Fresno last season?). He had a huge offseason, his quick, slashing style contrasts Ian Johnson's patience and he'll be a monster on special teams. Harper had 376 yards and six touchdowns last season - it could be 500-plus yards and 10 scores this year. Maybe not a total breakout season, but those are strong stats for a role player.
