2009 Breakout Star Candidate #1: Kenny Phillips

Over the coming weeks I will be posting my candidates for the New York Giants breakout stars of the 2009 season.

Candidate Number #1:  Kenny Phillips (FS/SS)

My first choice for 2009 breakout player is last years first round pick Kenny Phillips. He possesses all the tools and traits that you look for in a play making safety, and he showed flashes of that when he was on the field last year. Phillips posted 67 tackles, 5 pass deflections, and an interception will playing mostly as the third safety/situational player.

I love his potential to really become a difference maker. Look for KP to become a full time starter next season and make some big time plays in the secondary.

2009 Projections

  • Tackles – 80
  • Pass Deflections – 8
  • Interceptions – 5
