NFL Rookies Who Will Struggle to Make Final Rosters

Someone has to be the "hater," so allow me the honor of selecting 10 rookies who will struggle to make an NFL roster in 2013.

This doesn't mean that their careers are over. Practice squads and injuries will give them a chance to find new life in the league.

However, the odds are against most rookies finding a place in their chosen profession. It's a numbers game.

There are only 1,696 spots available, and roughly 250 rookies are drafted each year. Take away spots for stalwarts who stick around for more than seven years (just about how many years it would take for a complete turnover if every rookie made it), and the odds shrink considerably.

Best of luck, gentlemen. You're going to need it.
