1. Darnell Mooney

Another player who has flashed early on in preseason is Darnell Mooney. Early reports are that Mooney, like Smith, is poised for an even bigger season after bursting onto the scene as a rookie. A big year-two leap could be in store, but it has to start with this preseason.

Ok, we are hearing that Darnell Mooney is beating Kindle Vildor, or even lower corners on the totem pole. In Miami, Xavien Howard just had his contract issues resolved, and they also have Byron Jones. It is just practice, but these are the names you want to see Mooney flash against.

If Mooney has a big week, and we then see it on the field Saturday then you should really buy the hype that Mooney has found another level.
