Montee Ball is excited to be in the NFL! And he leads all Broncos running backs for carries on the year. With 13.
Ziggy Ansah fits in well with his Lions teammates. You see, Ansah didn't even play football until 2010. And most of his Lions teammates haven't played defense in years, either.

Second-round pick Aaron Dobson will have great success like a couple of other former second-round receivers from the Bill Belichick era: Chad Jackson and Bethel Johnson. (Yes, in fairness, Deion Branch was a second-round pick, and he turned out all right.)

New Orleans Saints
The rest of the NFC South shudders when first-round pick Kenny Vaccaro helps the Saints play a little defense this year. A motivated Saints team is a dangerous team.
