5. Rookies could once again be prominently featured

Last year, Doug Martin, Lavonte David and Mark Barron combined to record 48 games started as the Buccaneers rookie class made a huge impact on the team's fortunes. It's not every year that the rookie class sees that much action, but 2013 could be an instant replay. Among the NFL newcomers who could win prominent roles are CB Johnthan Banks, DT Akeem Spence, RB Mike James and DE William Gholston. In addition, rookie QB Mike Glennon is currently running as the top reserve behind Josh Freeman.
