NFC: Campbell, Lawson, Turner ready for breakout seasons
Minnesota Vikings WR Sidney Rice
Because the strength of Minnesota's offense is the run game and not the arm of QB Tarvaris Jackson, it's dicey to predict a breakout season for any Vikings receiver. But as a rookie in 2008, Rice used his height (6-foot-4) and ability to go get the ball at its highest point to make plays in the vertical passing game. Opponents will continue to stack the box, however, until Jackson proves he can make more of those types of plays. With so much attention from defenses sure to focus on stopping RBs Adrian Peterson and Chester Taylor, Rice should get chances to use his size and jump-ball skills against single coverage on the outside.

Campbell. Yes. Under Zorn he will have ever chance to work that offense for a lot of yards. And if not him... Colt will come in and save the day for the skins.We're bringing purple back.
