Just two days away from the 2013 NFL draft, it’s the time of the season where projected first-round picks start to come out of the woodworks.

Some players, however, never generate the buzz until the draft itself comes around. Each year, there are NFL prospects who are overlooked by the majority of the draft media, only to be selected considerably higher than most projected them to be picked.
