There's no perfect science for who will take the NFL by surprise each year, but one thing is always certain—there will be a handful of players who will step up and become fan favorites for the league and their team's faithfuls.

Prior years have introduced fans to household names like Kurt Warner (1999), Tony Romo (2006), the true Aaron Rodgers (2008) and Miles Austin (2009).

Last year introduced the league to several new solid performers, including LeGarrette Blount, Josh Freeman, Peyton Hillis, Tramon Williams and the revival of the ever-so-exciting Michael Vick.

The most pleasant surprise for Houston and fantasy owners everywhere was league-leading rusher Arian Foster. In just his second year, Foster rushed for 1,616 yards and 16 touchdowns.

Journeyman Brandon Lloyd also proved that the glimpses of talent he showed during his days in San Francisco were no joke, as he lead the league in receiving yards (1,448) and tied for third in receiving touchdowns with 11.

So who are the players with the potential to break out this season? Here is each team's player with opportunities to win over the league.

Please feel free to comment and tell me how much of a moron I am.
