Who are the young and talented NFL players on the verge of peaking and entering into the elite ranks of the league?
NFL rookies don’t always hit that plateau. Sometimes, it takes time for teams to see the fruits of their hard work during draft season.
When young talent finally blossoms, though, it’s a beautiful thing.
Sometimes it takes a year; sometimes it takes two.
There isn’t really a set time frame that every player has to work through until a light bulb turns on and he “gets it.”
Some never do.
But we’re not here to talk about busts or guys who never get to the next level. We’re going to talk about the young guns who are on the verge of making statements in 2013.
These will be players who have shown promise but have yet to make the next step. Only those who have been in the league for two seasons or less will be considered.
