Each season we are all witnesses to "Mr. Irrelevant" type players and players who make the most of their limited opportunity.
Or maybe it's someone who has always had a lot of potential but finally found their place. Whatever the case may be, it's always fun watching the league evolve and seeing a new level of talent being brought into the NFL.
There comes a time where all great legacies must come to an end. With each legacy that dies, another one is born. That's one of the great things about this sport, it's a never ending cycle of greatness.
Sometimes it's hard to even visualize players like Peyton Manning, Andre Johnson, and Adrian Peterson being second tier to others, but in reality there will be a day where more talented players come along.
On that note, here's a list of five players who have potential to be the "Superstars of Tomorrow".
2009 Statistics - 1053 Yards, 8 TD, 2 INT, 98.5 QB Rating, 61.6% Completion
Matt Moore is on this list because he completely turned this team around when he took over the starting job. On top of putting up impressive numbers, the Carolina Panthers went 4-1 with him as the starter, including a victory over Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings.
I think Moore has found himself in the perfect situation because he doesn't need to be "that guy" in Carolina. He has a great running game he can work off of but with Steve Smith's injury, he's going to have to find a new "go-to" receiver.
The Panthers find themselves in a very similar situation to the Bears. They both play in tough divisions but some people think they can make a run at the post-season.
2009 Statistics - 47 Receptions, 790 Yards, 6 TD, 16.8 Avg
Despite being sidelined due to a foot sprain at the beginning of the season, Hakeem Nicks still managed to put up impressive numbers and become one of Eli Manning's favorite targets.
As a rookie who didn't get that much attention until week 5, he still tied as 6th among all NFL receivers with 16.8-yards- per- catch.
Now that he has proven he can play at the NFL level, don't be surprised to see this man have a breakout season and emerge as one of the best WR's in the NFC.
2009 Statistics - 3618 Yards, 20 TD, 15 INT, 86.4 QB Rating, 64.5% Completion
With talks about Donovan McNabb heading to the Redskins, Jason Campbell knew his time in Washington was limited, but I think this was a good thing.
Jason Campbell finally has the opportunity to get comfortable playing in one system. Not only is he light years ahead of JaMarcus Russell, but he has a huge arm which fits right into Al Davis' plans.
Last season Campbell posted career highs in completion percentage, yards, and touchdowns. This shows he is adapting to the style of the NFL, which has to bode well with Raiders fans.
2009 Statistics - 55 Receptions, 676 Yards, 5 TD, 12.3 Avg
Jermichael Finley certainly made the most of his opportunity as he emerged as one of Aaron Rodgers' favorite targets last season. Finley is a 6'5" monster with great hands who isn't afraid to get physical with DB's.
I've heard the saying "Too fast for LB's and too big for DB's" to describe Finley's attributes.
Finley, along with teammate Greg Jennings, attended Larry Fitzgerald's annual WR camp to help prepare him for the 2010 season. On top of Finley's natural talent, he has been receiving advice from Hall of Famer Michael Irvin during the off-season. To be the best you have to learn from the best, and that's exactly what Finley is doing.
As much as I would love to put Finley in the No. 1 spot, there is one man who I think is more deserving.
2009 Statistics - 1120 Yards, 7 TD, 5.9 Avg
Jamaal Charles is an elusive and speedy back who was only second to his clone, Chris Johnson, among all backs in the second half of last season. When he became the starting back, he accumulated 968 yards and seven touchdowns in the final eight games of the season.
And the most impressive thing? He's doing this behind an offensive line that gave up 45 sacks and 85 QB hits.
He will also be sharing carries with Thomas Jones next season, which will not only keep him fresh, but he can learn a thing or two from Jones who has had a pretty successful NFL career.
Charles is far from a one dimensional back either. Last season he had 40 receptions for nearly 300 yards. He is quickly becoming the main "go-to" guy in Kansas City and is the type of player that defenses are going to need to make game plans around.
