10 NFL Rookies Guaranteed to Prove Experts Wrong in 2013

EJ Manuel will prove experts wrong in 2013.

Lost in the excitement of the 2013 NFL draft is the reality that only a few of the 254 players selected will become great players. Once drafts are evaluated three years from now, we will wonder how that highly regarded prospect didn’t turn into an All-Pro.

We'll be equally shocked at how a great player slipped through the cracks.

Experts can be wrong about a lot of things. Robert Gallery was a “can’t miss” left tackle; Aaron Curry was a "can't miss" linebacker. Tom Brady is probably the most well-known sixth-round draft pick in history, and a lot of evaluators were wrong about him—including the Patriots.

Experts will be wrong just as much as they are right—it’s a guarantee.

Several NFL players each year prove experts wrong and leave even the brightest talent evaluators with egg on their faces, and there will be no exceptions this year. Players will bust, others will outperform players ranked higher on draft boards, and poor scheme fits will fit their defense just fine. 

Here are the NFL rookies guaranteed to prove experts wrong in 2013...and beyond.
