The next big thing. It's what every NFL general manager tries to put on his roster when the draft rolls around. It's what every coach tries to develop from late-round selections. Every position has someone who's going to be added to that elite group sooner rather than later.
Every player in this slideshow isn't currently ranked in the top three of his respective position, but he will be there within a season or two. These are players who are either prototypical talents for their roles or are unique and finally have the necessary talent around them to let them shine.
