Football: Who is NEXT?
Who is on the verge of becoming a bigger NFL star -- Jimmy Graham or Cam Newton? Will Andrew Luck be the next Peyton Manning? Do college defensive studs Jadeveon Clowney and Dre Kirkpatrick stand a chance against the rest of the field? We have questions. You have answers. Discuss who is NEXT!
Every year since 1998, ESPN The Magazine has recognized an elite group of emerging athletes to watch in the year ahead -- athletes we call NEXT. They are competitors not only on the cusp of stardom, but on the verge of transcending their sports. NEXT is what happens when the hype is real.
