The 2011 NFL Draft came and went and teams are hoping that their choices will end up in the 2012 Pro Bowl. NFL rookies generally struggle to adjust to the professional game. Size, speed and strength are entirely different in the NFL than the NCAA.
Generally, quarterbacks have the toughest time adjusting to life in the NFL. Learning new offenses at a new level is difficult. Quarterbacks are responsible for knowing more about the offense than any other player.
As such, there are no quarterbacks on this list. Linemen generally have the best shot of success during their rookie seasons. There are also a few special players from this draft class who will have the opportunity to show their skills on their respective teams.
These players all have a shot at making the Pro Bowl their rookie season.
