    In this thread post your thoughts on who you feel will be the surprise offensive impact player for 2012. Obviously I know guys like Brandon Lloyd come to mind, but try and think of guys who you feel will become a valuable part of the offense that in turn make people like Lloyd, Gronk, Welker, etc. better. Be creative with your answers and you're welcome to debate each response in this thread.

    I'll say Julian Edelman. Personally, it feels like if he is ever going to contribute to the offence in a full time way, now is the time.

    I got to go with visathe shiancoe. He can make plays, and I have a feeling defenses are going to just forget about him. I could easily see us still deploy 2wr 2te sets but just have hernandez in the back field. The receivers would be lloyd and welker with gronk and shiancoe as the tes. Defenses would be concerned with whatever trickery hernandez is up to, leaving shiancoe space to do his damage.

    I think it's finally his time to step up with all the receivers we released.

    Shane Vereen ... if he can stay healthy. In particular I see him being productive as a receiver out of the backfield. The personnel package with Hernandez and Gronkowski with Vereen will be a real headache for opposition D's. But he's got to stay healthy. To some that would probably be a surprise in itself.

    Honorable Mention:
    I can see Daniel Fells have a real impact in the run game and catching several key passes when opposing D's focus on Gronk and Hernandez ... and Welker ...and Lloyd ... and Ridley.
