Everybody loves a pleasant surprise. This is especially true in the NFL, where an unexpected star can help change the fortunes of a franchise in a hurry.
The best recent example is probably Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, a former third-round draft pick who snatched the starting job away from Seattle's high-priced free agent as a rookie and helped deliver a Super Bowl title less than two years later.
Unfortunately for franchises not situated in the Pacific Northwest, stories like Wilson's don't unfold on a very regular basis.
However, this doesn't mean that each NFL team can't see a surprise starter emerge from training camp and make his mark on the regular season.
Just for the fun of it, we are going to take a look at recent reports, rumors and trends around the league to try to predict each team's 2014 surprise starter before training camp battles get underway.
