The next wave of rookies join the League this year, and more than a few will make significant contributions.

Being an NBA rookie isn't as easy as players like Kyrie Irving, Ricky Rubio, Klay Thompson, Kenneth Faried and Kawhi Leonard have made it seem.

Making an immediate contribution is a tough notion to grasp, but there are seven players from the 2012 NBA draft that will provide comfort in their respective teams' grand scheme of success.

This year's draft class may actually own more depth than drafts in the past couple years, hence the selection of quite a few players.

It takes a perfect blend of player development, talent and opportunity in order for these players to succeed.

While players like Harrison Barnes, Dion Waiters and Austin Rivers certainly provide a bunch of talent, they don't possess the immediate opportunity to succeed.

Not only do these seven have a chance to contribute instantly, they are good bets to have their smiles be the symbol of their respective franchises.
