Every season, at least one player on the Patriots "breaks out". There were a handful on the Patriots last season. You could saw cornerback Kyle Arrington broke out. You could probably argue Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez did as well, even though they had superb rookie season. Kyle Love definitely made a big name for himself, too.
We could name more, but you get the idea. So, who can we expect this season? Tom E. Curran already has his pick (slide 2), but we want to hear from you. Which brings us to our UNO's Sports Tonight Question of the Day:
Who is your Patriots breakout player of 2012?

The Patriots announced on Thursday that veterans will report to training camp on Wednesday, July 26 and that the first public practice will take place the following day.
Each of the team's first four practices -- from July 27-30 -- are scheduled to take place on the practice fields behind Gillette Stadium "in the nine o'clock hour," according to the Patriots. Updates to the training camp schedule, including more specific start times for practices, can be found at patriots.com/trainingcamp.
The Patriots Hall of Fame will hold its induction ceremony for former corner Raymond Clayborn on Saturday, July 29 around midday following that morning's training camp practice. Held on the plaza outside the Hall at Patriot Place, the ceremony will be free and open to the public.
The Patriots will host the Jaguars for two days of joint practices open to the public on Monday, Aug. 7 and Tuesday, Aug. 8. The preseason opener for both clubs will take place at Gillette Stadium on Aug. 10.
