Can you tell us about a player on the roster who hasn’t reached the spotlight but you feel will be a difference maker in 2014?

"Jeremy Ross. Ross proved to be a reliable and dynamic punt/kick returner, but I feel like he’s only scratched the surface. Ross could be a deadly gadget type of player thanks to his speed and field vision. On defense I think Nick Fairley finally lives up to the hype that has surrounded him since he was drafted out of Auburn. He dropped almost 30 lbs. over the off season and is playing on a stout defensive line."
