Does this shirt make me look fat?

The NFL offseason is in full swing, with mini-camps being conducted this week. Fans of all 32 NFL teams are itching to see how rookies will perform in camp, usually a good indicator of season performance.

No rookie experiences more pressure to immediately succeed than the first-round draft pick of each time. Often these young men are called to start, and within a few months must master the playbook of an NFL team.

In this slideshow, we'll evaluate which rookies will have the biggest impact on their respective teams in 2012.

As a side note, for anyone expecting Ryan Tannehill to be on this presentation, he won't be. I am of the opinion that he shouldn't start over Matt Moore, much less have an immediate impact in 2012.

As always, feel free to rant, rave, or display excessive amounts of fandom in the comments!

Without further ado, let's get going.
