13. Julian Edelman
Patriots wide receiver
Where would offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and quarterback Tom Brady be without the former Kent State quarterback who entered the season in the unlikely role of the most experienced receiver on the Patriots roster? The fifth-year man responded to being asked to replace the production lost by Wes Welker’s defection by more than doubling his previous career totals across the board while placing fourth in the league in receptions (96), or 23 more than Welker’s total in Denver.
