Time marches on for all of us. That is a fact.
Players march on in the NFL every offseason, which is also a fact.
But if there’s a job, someone has got to do it.
Here, we are taking a look at seven players who will be going from understudy to feature performer. For some, they’ve had a slight taste of being a starter in the past. For others, this will be a whole new experience, and there’s little doubt that they welcome the challenge.
Who will make the successful transition from backup to the big time? We have included our best guesses after a little work.
So for the nine players featured here…cue the music.
