USA TODAY looks at five players who may be primed for breakthrough seasons:

G JAHRI EVANS, NEW ORLEANS SAINTS

Background: Made steady climb after being fourth-round draft choice from Division II Bloomsburg State. Fell in draft because teams were concerned about his ability to handle higher a level of competition.

Breakthrough potential: Evans (6-4, 318), in fourth season, may be ready to secure elusive Pro Bowl berth, especially if high-powered Saints keep marching. Has it all, including rare agility for his size.

What they're saying: "I think Jahri is a guy that's going to play in a lot of Pro Bowls before his career is over." —Saints coach Sean Payton

Guy's been one of the best RGs since 2006 and I've seen articles every year since 2007 saying he is primed to "break out". He broke out a long time ago; just no one will acknowledge it.

Break out in the national media <> "is the best at the position". It just means "We don't watch NO that often because the ratings won't be as high.
