Default Who was a Pre-Season stud...or Backup that you thought would be a star..and never was

Some of the one's I remember:

Zamir Cobb - on a couple message boards that I am a member of, people were penciling him as the #3 receiver with his great hands, speed, etc. There were debates and numerous threads about this guy. He had a couple of nice preseason games and got hurt. Tried to come back the next year and was cut. But, I remember the heated debates that were about this guy.

Donte Brown - a RB that had some really nice long runs in preseason several years ago. For 2 years, he made us think he was the the "Willie Parker" before there ever was a Willie Parker. Ended up being signed by the Bills and never made it very far.

Jason Capizzi - I know he is still around, but one more decent preseason and he could enter into this status.

I thought that Cobb was going to make a great name for himself.. until he got hurt.

Sad.

Tee Martin was a college standout. He did what Peyton couldn't do (beat Florida & won the title game) and was never given an appropriate chance to shine in the NFL. Crying shame

he was given a shot in the european football league with rhein fire though, and he screwed the pooch in the champ game.

between zeoroue and maafaala at rb, i thought we were set for jeromes departure.

Walter Young. Tall, Great Hands, made big noise in camps with his catches. But when you cannot run a route correctly to save your life you will never make it.

How on earth could I have forgotten the legend of all legends...The Man among Boys...John Kuhn. He must be the king of preseason football.

I really think Kuhn would have been pretty good if we had given him a chance in the regular season. I liked him myself.
