When the NFL draft is discussed, people tend to focus on the early picks. 2010 was all about Tim Tebow. 2011 is sure to bring the mention of Cam Newton on a daily basis.
With the discussion focused on these players, it’s very easy to forget that players like Shannon Sharpe and Terrell Davis came late in the draft. Late-round picks can easily make as much of a difference as the early picks.
The 2011 draft is sure to bring several players that can become starters in their first season. While these players may not go on to become Hall of Famers, they will make a difference for their respective teams early on.
