New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz entered last season as a nobody. Sure, he had flashed some potential in the preseason, however, in the NFL, potential does not always translate into on-field success. Cruz entered his 2011 campaign just hoping to secure a roster spot, and he came out of the season with the Giants all-time record for most receiving yards, not to mention a Super Bowl ring.
