QB Tom Brady
Scouting report said: "Looks frail." Career résumé says: Three Super Bowl rings, two league MVPs.
RB Arian Foster
Destroyed his rep by clashing with Vols coach Phil Fulmer. Repaired it by averaging 1,421 rushing yards over past three seasons for Houston.
LT Jermon Bushrod
Six standout years as Drew Brees's blind-side protector earned him a $35 million deal with the Bears last month.
LG Jonathan Goodwin
A washout in New York, he won a Super Bowl ring with the Saints in '10 and helped lead the Niners to the big game last season.
