    The more I pondered this question, the more names kept popping up, tbh.

    On O...

    Jared Goff. An obvious choice. Maybe THE choice.

    Todd Gurley. Surely a top candidate,

    Robert Woods. The Buffalo O was smothering him, imo. Might thrive in this McVay O environment. I sure think he will.

    Tyler Higbee. Another guy that stands to benefit tremendously from McVay's TE oriented O since Kendricks is no longer around. Could jump from obscurity to a star this year.

    Nelson Spruce. How to top UDFA with one preseason game appearance to possible starting contributor?

    On D...

    Connor Barwin. This could resurrect his career under Wade once again. How's that for dramatic benefit?

    Robert Quinn. New DC, new position. New health? Could be an explosive year for Quinn. If healthy, look out!

    Kayvon Webster. Finally an opportunity to start. That's some serious benefit, huh?

    Nickell Robey-Coleman. Same as Webster. Finally an opportunity to start.

    Lamarcus Joyner. Some have said that this might allow him to become a Pro Bowler as a FS.

    Sooooo...

    Clearly, all of the above stand to benefit under the new coaches and new schemes. Try to avoid selecting just the player that will most impact the team, such as a Goff, for example. Try instead to select the PLAYER and his on field play that should most benefit from the new coaches.

    Who do you think it will be?

    Aaron Donald. Yes, he can still get better.

    I'm leaning toward the younger O-Linemen who've been drafted in the last 4 seasons -- Havenstein, J. Brown, Wichmann, and Donnal. Flashback to Tom Mack's comments from this year's OTA's -- these guys are getting proper coaching on technique; something that seemed to be overlooked by the previous regime.

    I'm optimistic that we'll see an improvement over last year, where they couldn't protect the QB or open holes for the running game.

    I think our young team will benefit much from this coaching staff overall.

    The Oline is probably where I start. That'll benefit both Gurley and Goff - as will scheme.

    I'm excited to see Quinn in the Ware role, I still wish we could have talked Ware into coming in for a 1 year deal (I'd be excited if I heard he came to camp just to help teach)

    Joyner is going to thrive in his new role at FS.

    One name you didn't mention that I think stands a chance to have production under the new staff. . . Tavon Austin

    Can Johnny Hekker improve!?

    I have to go with Joyner. Sure Goff will improve, many players would have improved under Fisher too. But Joyner will be playing a new position. A position that many of us have thought would be ideal for him. I may not be right, but I always thought of Joyner as an Earl Thomas type player. Stay tuned...

    Goff , and Gurrley have to be Up there, But I think on Offense SPRUUUCE will profit the most!
    And on Defense, while I think the scheme will help Quinn and Donald, I think the Player that will profit most is Barron! JMHO!

    EDit: Oh! I forgot! Hekker might profit the MOST!! He won't be using his Leg anywhere near as much, so his career will go on for another 15-20 years!

    I think Tavon is the best answer for this question. He has been healthy and the last regime really tried to utilize him. This season he will out perform his contract. All the other offensive pieces will benefit, but Tavon has the monkey on his back. "He's a gadget player, he's over paid" He will benefit the most.

    I sure hope Tavon benefits the most.

    Dominique Easley will benefit the most from the new coaching since he will be moved around going between DT and DE.

    I agree on Tavon, I think he was stymied by the middle school offense more than Gurley was and should show why he was worth the big bucks.

    Difficult question but I think it'll be Gurley. Others will improve as stated by many, but he fell so far last year that if he gets to his 2015 level of productivity that it'll be night and day.

    Defense.

    I elect Robert Quinn. Quinn's past asset was bending around the edge to get the QB. He also uses the tomahawk chop to create fumbles. His only problem is a bad back. In the new 3-4 defense Quinn can rush and use both his edge bending and his quickness to create havoc in the offenses back field. He also can use his speed move around and attack from different angles. Quinn has the option to rush from a standing position or with his hand in the dirt. It all could help take a little pressure off his back. Quinn gets back to his glory days with the new coaches.

    Tavon Austin for me as well.

    Ps. I have a hard time calling a second year player a vet. That crap needs to be changed. No way Goff should be considered vet status.

    Wade Phillips has already said that he wants AD to have a one-on-one situation, wherever he is on the Dline. This sounds like a career year for the G.O.A.T.!

    It's between 2 for me - Tavon, probably nudges ahead, he's going to have plays designed for him, and I really can't wait.

    AND a close second is Saffold. He's got 2 vets either side of him, taking the "only vet" pressure off him - I think he's going to have the best season he's ever had in horns this year

    I hope your right Shaunpinney! But Sadly I always worry about Saffold's staying Healthy, I don't think he can make it through 16 games+!

    I've got a good feeling this year @DaveFan'51 - I think he's going to put in a pro-bowl performance.
