One player from all 32 NFL teams who can break out and dominate this season

The NFL is back, and with it comes new opportunities for every player in the league.

Each year, new stars are born in the NFL — players who have grown from the year before, given a new chance on their team, or simply come out of nowhere.

We went through each team in the league and tried to identify players who could be set up for breakout years. In many cases, they’re second- or third-year players who have a chance to improve as they get used to the league. In others cases, there are veterans who finally have a chance to shine or rookies who look to be immediate contributors to their teams.

Here are our picks for a breakout star from each NFL team:

Arizona Cardinals — Budda Baker, S

Age/Experience: 22, second season

One thing to know: Baker had a solid rookie season, starting seven games and compiling a sack, seven pass defenses, and two forced fumbles, earning a respectable 72 grade from Pro Football Focus. With Tyrann Mathieu departing this offseason, Baker should have a bigger role this year.

Atlanta Falcons — Calvin Ridley, WR

One thing to know: Yes, it’s a bit cheap to pick rookies (spoiler: there will be others on this list), but Ridley is set to make an impact on the Falcons. Atlanta’s passing attack fell off a bit last season, but Ridley joins Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu as another big, versatile target for Matt Ryan. He’s impressed so far in training camp and should profit off the attention defensives give Jones.

Baltimore Ravens — Marlon Humphrey, CB

Age/Experience: 22, second season

One thing to know: The Ravens’ 2017 first-round pick started the final four games of last season and is slated to start this season following the suspension of cornerback Jimmy Smith. At 6-0, 197 lb, Humphrey is a big corner who allowed a passer rating of just 46.7 last season, per Pro Football Focus.
