Top 25 Impact Players for 2013
You've got to be able to protect the blind side in football. It's an essential part of the game, and one that's separated good teams from great ones over the years. The man charged with that task this year is Blaine Clausell.
You can't put a price tag on top shelf talent on the offensive front, and MSU's Gabe Jackson is as top shelf as it gets in the SEC in 2013. For State to have a successful season in 2013, the Bulldogs will need a big year from the future 1st rounder
With the release of Mississippi State's first game week depth chart of the 2013 season, it was time to start reexamining the list of 25 impact players for 2013.
The sophomore product of Morton surprised many when he was listed as the starter at CB opposite of Jameson Love earlier in the week. Can he live up to expectations, and is he ready for the big test the first week against Oklahoma State?
A junior center, Dillon Day has started his last 21 ball games for Mississippi State, and he has twice been named to the Remington Award watch list. Coming into the 2013 season, he will play an important role to help the offensive line improve.
With the loss of most of the receiving yards and touchdowns from 2012, players such as Joe Morrow have the opportunity to step into the spotlight as top notch wide receivers for Mississippi State in 2013.
While it is hard to say a redshirt freshman has to be an impact player, there is little doubt that Beniquez Brown will see plenty of significant playing time in 2013. Should the player be as good as advertised, Bulldogs fans will rejoice in 2013.
Sophomore Quay Evans came to Starkville amid much hype and fanfare, and as a true freshman in 2012, he logged enough quality plays to make many fans believe in him. In 2013, he will have to improve his production should the Bulldogs hope to succeed.
