Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff
Known As: Wide receiver for recent Super Bowl champs Baltimore Ravens
Pros and Cons: NFL stars have tallied three prior DWTS wins (including two of the last four seasons) and three additional runner-up finishes — an imposing bit of historical precedent. More importantly, Jones came out dancing during GMA's cast announcement — pulling off some cute synchronized moves with partner Smirnoff (a winner in Season 13 herself) — and showed off a charming sense of humor that should make him a vote magnet.
