7 Under-the-Radar Rookies Set to Surprise the NFL in 2013
Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

As we prepare for the start of training camp in less than a month, teams are starting to gauge where new additions might stand when it comes to their depth charts. Among those players being discussed and dissected are rookies. 

While most of the focus is going to be on high-round picks, I thought it made sense to take a look at seven under-the-radar rookies who will surprise the NFL in 2013. 

You will see players who suit up and do dirty work along the offensive line. You will also see electric performers at wide receiver and a major sleeper at running back in the form of Zac Stacy, who's with the St. Louis Rams. 

As we saw in 2012, rookie production isn't limited to those heralded prospects who we spend months talking about leading up to the draft. 

Instead, a number of mid-round picks stand up and raise an important question. Why weren't they drafted much higher than they went? 

These seven rookies will surely force organizations into asking themselves this very same question.
