Only veterans to choose from here. My vote goes to Anthony Maddox. It's no coincidence that the defense improved the more he played. He was a beast against Cleveland in the last game of the 2006 season with 9 tackles, 1 sack, 1 FF, and a TD. I think that game was a nice foreshadowing to his play this season. Other candidates: DeMarcus Faggins - Appears to be more comfortable in the Nickel. Has shown good ball skills and playmaking capabilities in the past. If he can repeat his 2004 season (45 Tackles, 3 INT's, 1 TD) it will be a nice season for him. Kevin Walter - Not much history to go on when you have one TD in your career and 19 receptions is a season high. However, out of his total of 47 career catches 30 of those are for a 1st down. Morlon Greenwood - Highest paid, highest profile guy on this list. He's averaged 110 tackles in the past 5 seasons, but never seems to make big plays (1 INT, 6 sacks in 6 seasons). Is this the year? Eric Winston - Showed nice progress, especially in the area of run blocking, as the season went on. Probably the most athletic lineman on the roster. Does he solidify himself as the franchise RT or maybe even win the LT job?
