The Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots have more than 50 players each on their active rosters. But unless some of the star players like Tom Brady's Cold Could Affect the Super Bowl">Tom Brady are plagued by things like a cold or injury, many will be sitting ready on the bench the entire time.

Here are three players that you'll most-likely never see take the field.

1. Jimmy Garoppolo

The Patriots rookie quarterback was chosen by New England in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. The 23-year old played at Eastern Illinois University. While he normally tries to follow the lead of quarterback Tom Brady, this week, he said he is playing the role of the Seahawks' Russell Wilson in practices.

"I am Russell Wilson this week," Garoppolo said, according to Yahoo News today.

2. B.J. Daniels
