One Rookie That Will Be Surprisingly Productive for Each NFL Team
Phil Sears-USA TODAY Sports
Denard Robinson could make an immediate impact as a rookie running back for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The 2012 NFL rookie class was as impressive a group of rookies as the league has ever had.

The emergence of top-two picks Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III as immediate superstars was expected, but the rookie class became spectacular because of the many other surprise standouts that emerged during their rookie seasons.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was a third-round pick, yet he was just as impressive as both Luck and RG3 as he led the Seahawks to the playoffs.

Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris, who finished second in the NFL with 1,613 rushing yards last season, was a sixth-round pick. Also a sixth-round pick was Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh, who set the NFL record for most field goals over 50 yards in a season and was an All-Pro selection.

Wilson, Morris and Walsh were just three of the many rookies who became unexpected standouts in their first respective NFL season.

The 2013 NFL draft class didn't have the star power of last year's draft, but as last year's rookie class showed, there should be plenty of rookies who will emerge as productive players between September and December of this year.

In the following 32 slides, we will take a look at one rookie from each team who may not have been a high draft pick or be receiving national attention, but could be a surprise breakout player in his rookie season.
