Sorry, wishful NFL fans: Not everyone's team can shop at Tiffany and Co.

Sometimes, you need to browse the selections at your local department store. Here, we break down the top 10 free-agent sleepers who figure to hit the market next month.

Be it injury (Sam Shields), suspension (Walter Thurmond, above), character issues (Richie Incognito), inexperience or pricing themselves into starting jobs for the first time (Clinton McDonald), we have found some hidden gems for teams to target outside of the top tier.

This 10-part slideshow outlines them, chronicles why they are sleepers and gives a best-fit projection for each player.
