One Rookie Every NFL Team Will Regret Passing On in the 2013 NFL Draft

From the moment "Mr. Irrelevant" is named, the media and fans react and judge every one of the preceding 254 picks.

Actually, that starts from the very first pick.

Of course, with each pick, there's a player whom fans, analysts or even members of the scouting department think would have been much better.

Sometimes, as in the case of Darrius Heyward-Bey vs. Michael Crabtree, they're right. More often than not, they aren't.

So a few weeks after this year's draft, we're going to take a knee-jerk look at one player each team is going to regret passing on in the 2013 NFL draft.

Just to be clear, this is not capping on a team's pick (I'll be upfront if I do that within the piece), but a look at an alternative who could have been a better choice. Naturally, it's a bit premature to say player A or B will be terrible or good.

So have fun and tell me who you would have rather seen drafted by your team.

Since some teams (Washington Redskins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Seattle Seahawks, New England Patriots) didn't have a first-round pick, I tagged them on to the end of this piece. Otherwise, the teams are in the order they were in before the first pick of the first round.
