Our Sports Picks collectors have waited impatiently for the prototype images of our upcoming NFL 14 lineup. We showed off the prototype for one of the figures during the San Diego Comic-Con, and the fans clamored for more. Although we're still waiting to finalize the tattoo inking for Kansas City RB Larry Johnson, we've decided that the overwhelming requests must be answered. So without further ado, let's take a look at the initial photography for our NFL 14 lineup:

LARRY JOHNSON -- Kansas City Chiefs RB: From the doghouse to Priest Holmes' backup, to the consensus #1 pick in most fantasy football drafts -- it's been an amazing two years for Larry Johnson. After shocking the world last year, L.J. gets to show the NFL what kind of crazy numbers he can put up as a full-time starting back.

REGGIE BUSH -- New Orleans Saints RB/KR: The happiest people to see Reggie Bush playing in New Orleans are the Saints faithful, but a close second are the fans of the other nine PAC-10 schools he abused during his breathtaking career at USC. With speed, power, and ridiculous moves, Bush is an absolute weapon in the open field.

ANTONIO GATES -- San Diego Chargers TE: Gates hadn't played competitive football since high school, and his NBA prospects coming out of Kent State weren't thrilling, so he knocked on the door of the San Diego Chargers and announced that he could play some football. He wasn't kidding. Gates caught 10 touchdown passes in each of his first two seasons, and in 2006 he leads all tight ends in catches, receiving yards and touchdowns.

TROY POLAMALU -- Pittsburgh Steelers S: Is he a cornerback, safety, or a linebacker? Equal parts deception and devastation, Polamalu is just as likely to sack your quarterback as he is to pick off a pass across the middle. Underneath all that hair is a defensive riddle no one's been able to solve...

STEVE SMITH -- Carolina Panthers WR: The most feared receiver in the NFL stands 5'9 and weighs 180 pounds. Rebounding from a season lost to injury, Panthers wideout Steve Smith made the NFL his personal playground in 2005, leading the league (or tying for the lead) in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdown receptions.

SHAUN ALEXANDER 2 -- Seattle Seahawks RB: It's been high tide for the former Alabama running back since he landed in the NFL. Shaun Alexander set an all-time NFL record with 28 touchdowns in 2005 -- his 28 touchdowns were more than eight entire teams scored last season. Alexander led the league in rushing yards as well, and became the first league MVP in Seahawks history.

NFL 14 features one of the most balanced lineups in Sports Picks history -- look for it to arrive in stores this November!
