It isn't rare for rookies to get off to a strong start in their first season. In fact, it happens every season. What makes these debuts so interesting is to look at players that weren't highly regarded come up big time early on.
This season a multitude of those players performed at a high level in the first week of the NFL season. Chris Neild of the Washington Redskins and Randall Cobb of the Green Bay Packers come to mind first.
That said, there is a reason why some players went before others: They are just more talented with a larger amount of upside.
While the 2011 draft class wasn't the most talented in recent history, there were still a lot of players that I had high expectations of after watching college football last season and working on scouting reports heading into the draft.
Today I am going to focus on 25 players that already look like stars in the making.
