Who will make the biggest impact, who has the most to prove and who is the player to watch? Well, we've done our best to identify those things, and offer a few other fun tidbits.
2. OLB Khaseem Greene — Greene picked up where he left off last year by flying around the field to make tackles. Greene registered 14 in week one and was a key player in keeping Tulane to eight rushing yards. Most of the Howard offense has never seen a player like Green bearing down on them, after facing Eastern Michigan in its FBS game last year.
4. RB Savon Huggins — Huggins can be a brutal downhill runner when he gets going. Look for the offensive line to get a big push off the line of scrimmage and open up opportunities for the former five-star running back. Huggins fumbled last week and could use a strong showing in week two.
5. CB Brandon Jones — Jones made the big play against Tulane, but struggled in third-down coverage. When a big play is made on defense or special teams, Jones is often a reason why.
2. MLB Steve Beauharnais — Beauharnais was not nearly as active around the ball as he should have been. Three tackles is not enough to get it done. Speed to the ball and swarming ability have to improve.
4. PK Kyle Federico — He came up with a miss on his first career attempt, but rebounded with a 28-yarder and three extra points. Will nerves get the better of him in his first field goal attempt at home? Will Rutgers even need to settle for field goals against Howard?
5. WR Miles Shuler — Shuler may see his opportunities increase with Jeremy Deering's health in doubt. Likely to see the field on special teams and offense, it is time for Shuler to show that his big summer scrimmage was a sign of things to come and not an anomaly.
2. DT Scott Vallone — It did not show in the stat sheet, but Vallone was a huge contributor to holding Tulane to eight rushing yards. He got incredible push off the line of scrimmage and is a natural fit in his move to the 3-tech.
4. RG Andre Civil — Civil set the key block on Jamison's 46-yard touchdown run. Moving to guard and beating out Taj Alexander in a camp position battle, Civil is quickly transforming into a trustworthy offensive lineman after coming as a defensive end in 2009.
5. DE Myles Jackson — Jackson got off to a solid start, filling in at defensive end after the injury to Marvin Booker. Jackson was active and moved well against the run. Look for his role to increase with Booker still out.
