As we get closer to the 2013 NFL Draft, we hear more and more about the supposedly lackluster crop of prospects teams have to pick from. You know the chorus: There's no clear-cut No. 1 pick. There aren't any instant superstars-in-waiting. While that's true, I think this class is underrated and actually much better than many people think.

Every draft is different. People think having a lack of attention-grabbing names means it's a bad year to be drafting. No one in this class can match 2012 headliners Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III or 2011 standout Cam Newton -- in fact, last year's eighth overall pick, Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, would probably be the first player off the board this year. But several high-ceiling prospects will be entering the league in 2013. Moreover, the second-tier talent (players who will be picked from 11 to 50 or so) is better than the talent at that level in last year's draft. This is going to be a quality draft, despite what folks are saying.

With that in mind, I've put together a list of prospects who project as top-notch future starters, guys who are going to make multiple Pro Bowls in the years to come. They don't have the highest profiles -- this class is heavy on standout offensive and defensive linemen -- but they do have the size, speed, strength and football smarts to suggest they'll be studs in the long term, with a better-than-average chance of starting in 2013.
