2013 NFL Draft: Overlooked Talents Worthy of First-Round Consideration
Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Every year in the NFL draft, we see prospects get overlooked, only for those same under-drafted rookies impact their respective teams throughout the subsequent season.

Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks is a prime example from last year's draft.

Possessing first-round talent, the 5'11" Wilson wasn't selected until Round 3 and arguably performed better than any of the five quarterbacks drafted ahead of him.

As for the 2013 draft,we'll preview ahead is West Virginia's Tavon Austin, who may potentially be this year's hidden gem.

He's the most versatile player entering this draft season, because Austin has contributed an immense amount to the Mountaineers. On offense, he can stretch defenses as a receiver or widen zones when taking a handoff.

Austin also consistently made big plays on special teams, as his overall athleticism gave West Virginia a competitive advantage. Whichever team selects him and (or any of the following prospects) will gain that same competitive advantage.
