One of the biggest misconceptions people have about the NFL draft is that they believe it's all about what a person has done. Fans see college stars and assume NFL stardom is in the card. If a player has won and been successful, that should continue, no?

No—at least, not necessarily. 

Even when scouts and draft aficionados proclaim, "It's all about the tape," one has to realize that NFL teams don't watch tape to see what a guy has done; they see what he can do. They're not tabulating stats or even caring about how good of a game someone has. They're looking for traits, tendencies, ability and to see if those will extrapolate to the next level. 

That's all the combine and pro day workouts are as well—part of the puzzle. It's all evidence in the grand trial of whether or not these college studs can help an NFL team win football games. 

With that info in mind, here are the most overrated players in the 2013 NFL draft.
