Every team in the NFL desires playmakers. That's why they will go off the board so early and often in the 2013 NFL draft.

Being a playmaker is entirely different from being a good player. Some good players won't make a ton of big plays, and some big playmakers will make plays and do nothing else. 

Often, though, the best players are playmakers. After all, big plays tend to win games and can often make a huge difference for a team.
