Setting Career Expectations for Each Member of Detroit Lions' 2013 Draft Class

Pictured here is an NFL legend.

Barry Sanders was such an incredible player and likeable figure, that he won the Madden cover vote over Adrian Peterson, and still brings rousing cheers at the NFL draft in New York.

This is what NFL success looks like. This is the pinnacle of where a player's career can take him: recognized and loved, even decades after retirement.

But even the career of Sanders started as just a name read off a card, just as the NFL journeys of nine other Detroit Lions began last weekend.

Will any of them reach the level of immortality that Sanders has? Maybe just a couple of All-Pro teams? A Pro Bowl? Will they even start, or make the roster?

We don't know, but with the draft results less than a week old, we certainly can project.

And so we shall.
