If we had the ability to fast forward right now to the start of the 2012 NFL season, who would be the most surprising starters at every position in the league?

That is the task at hand, so we will try our best to find a long-shot that warrants consideration for the job, or that faces an uphill battle to claim the starting job.

Whether it is battling back from injury, overcoming the odds against a seemingly more talented veteran player, or other various scenarios, each of our selections were probably not counted on to be part of the starting lineup, but with some hard work and a little bit of luck, surprising results can follow.

It should also be noted that while some of these players might actually wind up starting Week 1, there is no guarantee that they can continue to keep the job all year long. In some cases there will be players returning from suspensions or the PUP list, or working their way back from rehab.

These starters need to make the most they can out of every start they receive, assuming that they ever get a start to begin with.
